New York • Apple's stock dropped Tuesdat, hurt by a lackluster first-quarter performance and a cautious second-quarter revenue outlook.
The shares fell 8 percent, hovering near $507 in afternoon trading.
On Monday Apple Inc. said it sold more iPhones and iPads in the first quarter than in any prior quarter, but investors were expecting even bigger things from the Cupertino, Calif., company.
The iPhone maker also announced a second-quarter revenue forecast of $43 billion, below Wall Street's $46.13 billion estimate.
The company's stock has started losing some ground in the past year due to concerns about slowing growth and increasing competition.
