Apple shares continue to be doused with Hater-Aid.

Ten days ago we talked up the decline of Apple Inc (AAPL) shares, that trend hasn't stopped.  Apple is just $9 away from $500 a share.

Apple shares have dropped almost 40% from its 12 month high. That works out to a massive loss of $183.7 billion for the world's most valuable company.

Friday Apple shares lost 3.9% and closed $509.79. Last time we checked in on Apple it was the company's worst day performance in more than four years.  The downtrend is inescapable for Apple since December despite rallying a short comeback in late November.  Now that Apple is below the $520 share price the next test is $500.  Apple is well below its 50-day moving average of $560.05 and 200-day moving average of $609.79.

The analysts are finally weighing in on Apple now that its share price has tanked.  This past week UBS changed their price target from $780 to $700 for Apple.  UBS still maintains a "Buy" rating on Apple Inc.  Jefferies analysts reduced their revenue outlook on Apple this week but still maintain their "Buy" rating.  Jefferies has a $800 price target and said they believe the stock is "dramatically under-priced."
