After a banner year in 2013 for big tech stocks, 2014 has seen a lot of the biggest names in this space fall significantly. In this segment from Tuesday's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Bryan White take a look at Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) ahead of earnings, now that a new earnings season has kicked off.

Jason discusses Apple over the past couple of years, and how this once high-flying market darling has seen a lot of stagnation recently, along with decline in investor interest. While CEO Tim Cook has said repeatedly that the company has a lot of really interesting products in the pipeline, Jason hasn't seen true innovation from the company in a while. Bryan, meanwhile, talks Twitter, which has fallen 40% from a recent high.
