Better Tech Buy Today: Apple or Google?

Andrew Tonner is a big fan of Apple. He's bullish on Google. So which is the better investment? In this video, Andrew explains why he likes Apple in the short run, and Google for the long run. Apple stock has been beaten down to low valuations, and the company will probably return part of its cash stash to shareholders this year. A low-cost iPhone would also help Apple penetrate the emerging market. Long-term growth may prove tougher despite the likely rollout of an iTV or iWatch. Google is a better long-term investment, since it's not dependent on one product and enjoys a wide moat with its search-engine business. Further, any new technology that could disrupt its business is currently not on the horizon.

As one of the most dominant Internet companies ever, Google has made a habit of driving strong returns for its shareholders. However, like many other Web companies, it's also struggling to adapt to an increasingly mobile world. Despite gaining an enviable lead with its Android operating system, the market isn't sold. That's why it's more important than ever to understand each piece of Google's sprawling empire.
