Remember the children's story about the chicken who said the sky was falling? Investors are starting to wonder whether or not it applies to Apple . A company that was arguably one of the best stocks to buy last year now looks like a shadow of its former self, and has investors worrying, like the fabled chicken, that the end might be near. Since last September, Apple stock has plummeted from $700 to below $400.
