Why do I focus on Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) so much? Well, there is a lot to focus on. Apple is the largest company by market cap, and its historic run has been one for the ages. Apple has individual products alone that have more revenues than hundreds, even thousands of companies. The question today really is, how many people do NOT own an Apple product? Strangely enough, I am actually one of them at the moment. I have never owned an Apple product, but I have used them throughout elementary and middle school, in high school, and sometimes, even in college.
I have focused on Apple a ton lately, and it is time to share some of my recent articles for those that might have missed some of them. Some of these are Research in Motion (RIMM) focused, but show you why Apple is just so great right now.
This article shows you how Apple is absolutely killing the competition.
This article gives you Apple, along with 4 others, that you should potential be in at the end of the third quarter. Some of these names have actually come down even more, making them more attractive.
Did you miss RIMM's terrible earnings report? This company is the exact opposite of Apple right now.
Not meant to be an article that sold Apple, but some took it that way. This article gives you a chance to take profits in the name, but still stay long for further gains.
You really shouldn't be buying Apple for the dividend, if you are, you are ignoring the tremendous growth. The dividend won't be important for a few more years.
There was some confusion over the taking profits article, and another author wrote an article taking the other side of my argument, arguing against my point(s). This one clears things up.
We are just a few weeks away from the ever important 2nd quarter earnings report for Apple. Here's a mini-preview.
Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
