After soaring to all-time highs in the wake of iPhone 5's triumphant market introduction in September, shares of Apple have fallen nearly $200. Although concern about the so-called "fiscal cliff" has spread to all aspects of the financial markets, seismic shifts across the tech landscape have also impacted Apple's Wall Street preeminence.

Eleven analysts lowered their Apple targets in the final weeks of the company's first fiscal quarter of 2013, which ends Saturday.
