Could This Apple Inc. iPhone 6 Rumor Actually Be True?

New research makes this once-crazy Apple iPhone 6 rumor actually seem possible.

Apr 30, 2014 at 2:00PM

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock got a much-needed lift in the wake of the company's monster earnings blowout last week.

As Apple's most dominant performance in recent memory, the report certainly gave investors a lot to love. And from the looks of it, Apple could just be getting started.

In the months to come, Apple's product launch cycle is expected to begin, even possibly as early as Apple World Wide Developers Conference in June. Among its upcoming products should be a new iPad, an updated Apple TV, possibly an iWatch, and the highly anticipated iPhone 6. And in looking at the iPhone 6, a key recent rumor just became a whole lot more plausible this week.

Apple's screen size scramble
Some weeks ago, a rumor surfaced that Apple intends to produce both 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes for the iPhone 6, which I promptly called into question

Fast-forward to today, a recent research post has suggested that a two-screen strategy for the iPhone 6 could make a lot of sense for Apple in key emerging markets like China. According to Kantar WorldPanel, some 40% of smartphones in China sold in March we're larger than 5-inch, suggesting a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 could help drive even more sales growth for Apple's key financial driver.

In the video below, tech and telecom specialist Andrew Tonner analyzes this interesting news in greater detail.

A better bet for wearables success than even Apple
If you thought the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad were amazing, just wait until you see this. One hundred of Apple's top engineers are busy building one in a secret lab. And an ABI Research report predicts 485 million of them could be sold over the next decade. But you can invest in it right now... for just a fraction of the price of AAPL stock.

4 in 5 Americans Are Ignoring Buffett's Warning

Don't be one of them.

Jun 12, 2015 at 5:01PM

Admitting fear is difficult.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out Warren Buffett recently told a select number of investors about the cutting-edge technology that's keeping him awake at night.

This past May, The Motley Fool sent 8 of its best stock analysts to Omaha, Nebraska to attend the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting. CEO Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger fielded questions for nearly 6 hours.
The catch was: Attendees weren't allowed to record any of it. No audio. No video. 

Our team of analysts wrote down every single word Buffett and Munger uttered. Over 16,000 words. But only two words stood out to me as I read the detailed transcript of the event: "Real threat."

That's how Buffett responded when asked about this emerging market that is already expected to be worth more than $2 trillion in the U.S. alone. Google has already put some of its best engineers behind the technology powering this trend. 

The amazing thing is, while Buffett may be nervous, the rest of us can invest in this new industry BEFORE the old money realizes what hit them.

KPMG advises we're "on the cusp of revolutionary change" coming much "sooner than you think."

Even one legendary MIT professor had to recant his position that the technology was "beyond the capability of computer science." (He recently confessed to The Wall Street Journal that he's now a believer and amazed "how quickly this technology caught on.")

Yet according to one J.D. Power and Associates survey, only 1 in 5 Americans are even interested in this technology, much less ready to invest in it. Needless to say, you haven't missed your window of opportunity. 

Think about how many amazing technologies you've watched soar to new heights while you kick yourself thinking, "I knew about that technology before everyone was talking about it, but I just sat on my hands." 

Don't let that happen again. This time, it should be your family telling you, "I can't believe you knew about and invested in that technology so early on."

That's why I hope you take just a few minutes to access the exclusive research our team of analysts has put together on this industry and the one stock positioned to capitalize on this major shift.
