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.
