The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.
comScore, a company that measures the digital world, just came out with its mobile platform market share numbers. Google and Apple are leading the way with almost 83% of the share of operating systems. Research In Motion and Nokia were the biggest losers last quarter, and Microsoft picked up a bit of market share. The message is simple: The leaders are getting stronger and the rest are falling behind. John and David believe that Google and Apple still look quite strong today. They have market-leading positions, fortress-like balance sheets, and trade at low multiples. Isn't that the simplest recipe to make money?
If you're one of the thousands of investors riding Apple to spectacular gains, you're doing yourself a disservice by not looking across the whole variety of companies benefiting from the same trends that make Apple the most valuable company in the world.
