In this video as part of the Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Fool analyst Jamal Carnette takes a question from a Fool reader, who asks, "Please elaborate further on the next 6 to 12 month timespan for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and CalAmp (NASDAQ:CAMP)? Why has CalAmp pulled back recently on no company news?"

Jamal discusses how Apple and CalAmp now represent two very different types of stocks, and with so much of CalAmp's valuation coming from its future potential as the "Internet of things" begins to become more and more of a reality, those future expectations, rather than current earnings, can sometimes make for a very volatile stock in the short term, even on little to no news.
