As Apple continues to face growing competition, the company's allure is starting to fade in the eyes of investors and suppliers, according to new report from Reuters. Meanwhile, the once dominant tech giant is losing market share as Samsung and other rivals continue to grow. 

The concerns of shareholders apparently range from worries about smaller shipments to criticisms that the company has lost its innovative edge since iconic co-founder Steve Jobs died a year and a half ago.


Asian suppliers have told Reuters that they are trying to become less dependent on Apple as they encountered delays on deadlines from the company.

For the first time since December 2011, Apple’s stock closed last week below $400.
