4 Possible Winners of Apple, Inc.'s iWatch

Apple  (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) is likely just months away from taking the wraps off of its expected iWatch. The Mac maker could easily sell tens of millions of units of its smartwatch, which represents a significant opportunity for any component suppliers lucky enough to win a spot. Looking at recent Apple devices, investors can speculate on companies that Apple may tap as vendors. Possible names include NXP Semiconductor  (NASDAQ: NXPI  ) , Universal Display  (NASDAQ: OLED  ) , STMicroelectronics  (NYSE: STM  ) , and OMRON Global.

Looking for a possible component play not included in this slideshow?
One small company makes Apple's iWatch possible. And its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors. To be one of them, and see Apple's newest smart gizmo, just click here!

    Possible only if and when AAPL decides to make one. According to Tim Cook...never !

    He clearly said wearable tech is an opportunity; but watches are absolutely not.

    Get it right or get over it. But as of now this device does not exist; and neither does a Phablet Phone from AAPL.

    Oh.....If it happens; also look at Nike and GT Advanced Technologies. The synergy with Nike is already there. The app is on your phone.

    GT is the sapphire crystal company that would provide the crystal for the mythical device.

    Just because Omron's US-traded ADR is illiquid doesn't make Omron itself (and its primary listing on the Tokyo Stock Exchange) "highly speculative". Omron is a fairly-diversified technology that has been around for 80+ years.
