25 Surprising Takeaways from an Apple Investor Conference
With a market value of $563 billion (as of March 20), Apple is the most highly-valued corporation in the world. It has made quite a few millionaires out of smart investors, and a group of investors gathered in Los Angeles last week to talk strategy about making money off the Apple juggernaut. Really, it's not a hard strategy due to the way Apple conducts itself. The company does not split its stock, and up until this past week, it never issued a dividend. The strategy for making money on Apple was simple: buy and hold, and don't panic on the dips, that's the time to buy more. There. That was easy. But of course, there's more to it than that, which is why EconomicTiming.com’s Jason Schwarz hosted this first annual show, taking up two large rooms in the cavernous Los Angeles Convention Center. The gathering of speakers was impressive and worth price of admission. Most everyone in this audience was an Apple investor and was simply holding on to their shares and watching it go up up up. But there were some great takeaways from the event that even casual gadget aficionados could learn from. Here's what we heard from the speakers.
