In this video from Tuesday's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Jason Moser dig through the biggest stories for investors from the market today.
Though Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) sold a record-breaking 51 million iPhones as well as 26 million iPads in its most recent quarter, Wall Street was looking for even stronger sales growth, and shares were down on the news. In the lead segment on today's Investor Beat, the guys discuss the similarities between Apple today and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) circa 2004, and talk about why Apple may need a new product fast if it wants to hold on to its pricing power. Jason also discusses whether Apple looks like a buy to him at today's price.
