Billionaire busts: The men who lost it allA Brazilian businessman has become a "negative billionaire" after his commodity empire collapsed following allegations of insider trading.

Shares of Apple hit their lowest level in more than a year on Monday, continuing a decline hastened by the company's last quarterly earnings report.

Apple Inc stock touched as low as $419 Monday - its weakest point since January 2012 - before closing down 2.4 percent at $420.05.

The Cupertino, California, company's January 23 report signalled that its fast growth phase, rare for a company of its size, may be coming to an end.

Apple's stock price peaked in September at $705.07 on the day the iPhone 5 was released. With Monday's close, the stock has dropped 40 per cent from the record high.
