Yet Another Reason Apple's Still the King of Tech


It's no secret that Apple's stock has taken a severe beating over the past few months, with an extra large chunk being taken out after the company reported earnings this month. Decreasing gross margin scared off many investors; Apple is supposed to be the titan of gross margin after all, right? In this video, however, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner tells us to look at another one of Apple's numbers: its tablet market share. He notes that locking customers in to the phone/tablet shared ecosystem makes for an extremely sticky consumer experience, and at this insanely low multiple, Apple looks deliciously cheap.

There's no doubt 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.
