The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Austin and Eric debate which tech darling had better earnings, Amazon.com or Apple. Both stocks absolutely crushed analysts' expectations, with Apple selling absurd amounts of iPhones and Amazon's revenue jumping 34%. Austin thinks on a per-quarter beat that Amazon's performance is more impressive, but that the implications of Apple's sales in light of the company's ridiculous size makes a more impressive long-term story here.
Big tech names like Apple and Amazon might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile called "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a leader in the exploding Chinese market.
