Apple Stock Remains One of the Best Buys in Tech

It hasn't been a pretty rough ride for Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) investors over the past several months. Despite a recent uptick, shares still sit some 20% lower than where they were six months ago. Investors naturally don't like losing money on their investments, but the Apple growth story is far from over. In fact, as we've seen management signal repeatedly over the past several months, the next chapter of Apple's great innovation story could be here sooner than many think.

In this video, Fool contributor Andrew Tonner discusses the Apple investment thesis and why those who are willing to tolerate the current pessimism should be handsomely rewarded in the coming months and years.

It's incredible to think just how much of our digital and technological lives are almost entirely shaped and molded by just a handful of companies.

    Let me first say I'm long apple but losing faith rapidly. Cook says little but when he does stock price takes a dive. I guess that's the source of my concern. Yes apple has done great things but to continue to do great things its needs great leadership. I'm not sure Cook provides that. He has presided over a stock price drop from 700+ to where it is now. While it could be argued that his management did't cause this drop he certainly has exasperated its depth of loss by poor product cycle management and allowing the narrative to dominated by the shorts. With 2 months or more until the next product release and no other catalysts in sight the stock price is probably going lower from current levels. What really scares me is if they come out in the fall with nothing more than trivial refreshes of the iPhone5 and iPads then there's no knowing how low this thing could go (stock buy backs or not). Then it's gets back to my point. Do I have faith in Tim Cook to weather this storm. Do I believe in his vision of what amazing new products are and can he deliver? As stated earlier I'm losing faith because he's given nothing to feel otherwise.

    Cook is the introverted version of Balmer of MSFT.

    Hang on for the next decade as Apple tries to "reinvent" itself...just like MSFT. Good thing they held on to the pile of cash...they'll need it to burn thru one failure to the next. lol

    Naw....I think Apple will pull out a few more winners but really, there's no guarantee they will or that they'll be able to sustain themselves.....not with hot comp. like Google, Samsung and others. And as Google is platform is what the market will demand due to inherent freedom of it vs. Apple's closed, controlled platform. This is a huge philosophical divide with very real consequences as we move forward. Thus far, open has always won. We might be dramatic and say, Apple is on the "wrong side of history."
