Apple Stock Plummets After New iPhone Reveal

Wall Street not impressed with new smartphones aimed at two different consumers

Shares in Apple took a tumble on Wall Street as the company unveiled two new iPhone smartphones Tuesday.

Traders clearly weren’t impressed with Apple’s new iPhone 5C, aimed at a younger and more budget-conscious consumer, and the more expensive iPhone 5S that feature new colors, an updated operating system that boost functionality and faster chips. The screen sizes remain the same as the previous iPhone 5.

The stock dipped further as investors had time to digest the news, losing $13.79, or 2.72%, to trade at $492.38.

But the stock wound up gaining some ground to close at $494.64, still down $11.53, or 2.28%.
