As a result, the Apple of the past may still be the Apple of the present, but don’t expect it to be the Apple of the future. Clearly, it’s a buy or hold stock for the moment, but don’t hold your breath. The fault lines are there. Keep an eye on where Cook spends his personal time at work and what problems (or products) he associates himself with. Ignore the Apple PR spin that Cook doesn’t need to innovate; research shows that innovative companies are led by innovative leaders. And the Apple of the future is not likely to be an exception to that rule. It hasn’t been and won’t be, so watch well and be ready to sell.
