The stock price dip that followed Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone premiere event this week appeared to be a manifestation of investor disappointment in the Cupertino-based company’s latest products. However, at least one prominent analyst and fund manager is bucking the trend when it comes to having faith in Apple’s ability to continue making innovative products.
Gabelli Asset Management fund manager Barbara Marcin recently told CNBC that she believes Apple will unveil a “wow” product within the next year or so and that it may be something wearable. “The company has a culture of innovation, and I think we see that with the new releases, and I think we’re going to see exciting new products,” she added.
Marcin noted that Apple likely hasn’t released this “wow” product yet because, “they want to get it right.” She also observed that it is hard to predict how consumers will use a wearable device product since, “Until you use something, you don’t really know how you’re going to use it.”
