1 Huge Thing Investors Keep Missing

Don't let it get away!

Keep track of the stocks that matter to you.

Help yourself with the Fool's FREE and easy new watchlist service today.

Every investor has their own metrics they like to weight when valuing a company, but one of the most important is perhaps the least measurable: good management. 

It's easy to forget that the ticker symbols and pieces of paper we trade daily are actually rights of ownership in living, breathing companies, and that those companies can be made or broken by their executives. 

Having a good CEO matters for every company, big and small, but it's even more important when investing with small caps because there is more to gain, and each decision the CEO makes has an even larger impact on the company. 

Of course, it still matters at large companies too, even the largest in the world. It was strong management that catapulted Apple to where it is today, and it will be management that determines whether the company can hold its lead on the competition.

Because the stakes are so high, we've dedicated a special section of our new premium research report on Apple to management, so you can learn everything you need to know about who is driving the company today. Claim your copy of the report by clicking here now.
