Is Apple About to Become Its Worst Enemy?

After a decade of bullishness, Barclays analyst Ben Reitzes has downgraded Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) stock from "overweight" to "equalweight," tantamount to downgrading from buy to hold, though his price target remained fixed at $570. Reitzes sees the company as being all about the iPhone, with new product categories such as a smart watch or smart TV being unlikely to catalyze shares upwards. He also makes the unsettling comparison between Apple and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) , which saw its share price remain largely flat for the decade following 2000.

In this video from Friday's Tech Teardown, Motley Fool tech and telecom bureau chief Evan Niu takes a look at Reitzes take on Apple today, and whether or not he sees Apple investors as being in for a slow decade ahead.
