Major company 3M failed to impress this third quarter. The filing of its revenue numbers showed a dramatic decline that has been continuing to affect the company's stocks since the beginning of the year.

Article 5

Lessin, Jessica. (2012). Apple drops an iPad Mini on rivals. Wall Street Journal. Web. Retrieved October 23, 2012 from http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204425904578074681343454060.html?mod=WSJ_business_LeadStoryCollection

In a general market decline for the third quarter, Apple just announced a major competitive product to help fight with its competitors that have cheaper tablets on the market. It announced the mini iPad to compete with Amazon's Kindle and other products, whose companies are showing higher stock percentage increases. However, as the article stated, "investors were underwhelmed, with most of the new products previously reported or rumored." This management decision may have been made too early, as the company will ultimately be competing with itself based on the recent launch of the iPad 2. As such, stocks fell about 3.3% after the announcement went public. The article has several vivid imaged that showcase the new iPad Mini alongside Apple sponsored videos unveiling the product. They help showcase the product in question, but really don't provide any insight into the negative impact the announcement had in terms of stock value.
