The Hidden Truth About the iPhone 8
By: Rex Moore
The iPhone 8 could be the best-selling iPhone yet. And I may have discovered the No. 1 stock to own heading into the coming iPhone tsunami – that isn't Apple.
We all know Apple's history since Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone on Jan. 9, 2007.
On that day, one of the most successful consumer products in history was born. Since then, Apple has sold over 1.2 billion iPhones. The results for Apple shareholders have been even more miraculous. Investors who bought in when the iPhone was released raked in 1,226% returns. And this was on top of the more than 1,000% returns since Jan. 1, 2001.
Last year, Apple generated $45 billion in profits -- more than Google parent Alphabet and Microsoft COMBINED.
And the next iPhone could make Apple tens of billions of dollars in profits. The question is how to get your slice of the pie.
Which brings me to what I'd like to share with you today.
Recently, a report detailing 25 new features of the iPhone 8 was released.
Since then, everyone has been talking about the iPhone 8's revolutionary technology. This includes facial recognition and the complete removal of the "home" button.
I focused on something else.
That very report pointed me to what could be the best way to profit off Apple's coming iPhone release.
While many people focused on the next big doodad, I saw something else. There's a feature within the new iPhone – but Apple doesn't make it.
Apple is one of the most secretive companies in the world. When the iPhone 8 ships this fall, it will be escorted by armed guards. And yet this key technology found in every iPhone 8 isn't made by Apple.
In fact, it's made by a company a fraction of the size of Apple.
That's right. This company worth less than 1/100th the size of Apple wins every time Apple sells an iPhone.
You don't have to be a numbers-whiz to understand what that kind of growth can do to a company's stock price.
That's why I hope you take a few minutes to unlock the full research a team of highly trained stock analysts from The Motley Fool put together on this developing story and discover why we could be near a turning point.
