Apple's fiscal annus horribilisSeptember 29, 2013: 7:54 AM ET
As bad as fiscal 2013 was for Apple shareholders, they've been through worse.
FORTUNE -- On Saturday, Apple (AAPL) closed its books on 2013 with shares down nearly 30% year over year.
As harrowing as fiscal '13 was for anyone holding the stock, long-time investors have been through worse. The company has made a lot of people very rich, but with Wall Street never sure if Apple's best days are behind it, its valuation can turn on a dime.
The stock's greatest hits include:
- Sept. 2012 to April 2013: Down 42.8%
- Calendar 2008: Down 56.9%
- Jan. to July 2006: Down 38.9%
- Fiscal 2001: Down 39.8%
- Sept. to Dec. 2000: Down 77%
- Apr. 1991 to July 1997: Down 82.6%
That's as far back as my memory of the share price goes. If you've seen worse, let me know.
