Apple Gets Edged Out in China


It is a long-held belief that Apple has nothing to fear in the Chinese market, having made about $24 billion in revenue from China in the 2012 fiscal year. But now it seems, Apple may be under attack in one of its most successful markets. In this video, Motley Fool analyst Lyons George discusses a recent report out of China that the big three names in the Chinese telecommunications industry are putting their weight -- and their marketing dollars -- behind different, lower-cost smartphone manufacturers.

There is absolutely no argument that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and more importantly, your portfolio) going forward.
