2 Stocks Banking on Apple TV

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Austin Smith and Andy Cross, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, Samsung delivered a monster quarter with an enormous number of phones sold, and the guys wonder what this might mean at Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) headquarters. They talk about how Apple's margins are so enormous that it can afford to sell fewer phones and still dominate in terms of profits, and they discuss whether 2013 will finally be the year of Apple TV. If so, will it be a set-top box, or a full-sized smart television? Companies such as Cirrus Logic (NASDAQ: CRUS  ) and Corning (NYSE: GLW  ) would love to know the answer to that, too.

Apple has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool superinvestor David Gardner, and it has soared 219.20% since he recommended it in January 2008. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential, and he helps like-minded investors profit while Wall Street catches up. Learn more about how he picks his winners with a free, personal tour of his flagship service: Supernova.

    It's interesting how a corrupt Korean chaebol ("wealth klan" loosely translated) fully supported by the Korean government, infamous for its disregard of patent rights, proven to have corruptly fixed prices twice (2000 - RAM pricing, 2009 LCD display pricing) seems to be championed by Americans despite its expressed disdain for Apple products and Apple's patents.

    And to top it off, they parlayed a trusted supplier relationship into an opportunity to BEGIN stealing Apple's innovations a year before they shipped when Apple's engineers began to disclose the engineering and design behind the parts Samsung needed to build.

    When will Samsung's well earned corrupt reputation be openly discussed by US media/blogs?
