• List of Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) Suppliers

    In a fortuitous turn of events for investors, notoriously secretive Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) has released a list of more than 150 of its suppliers.

    But for investors, the list of suppliers is a potential a treasure trove. Although many of the names on the list were known, some are new and represent possible ways to play Apple without paying the premium for Apple stock.

    Apple was compelled to release the list of suppliers to mollify critics who accused the Cupertino, CA,-based company of being complicit in questionable workplace practices in parts of its Asian supply chain.

    According to Apple, the list of suppliers represents "97% of Apple's procurement expenditures for materials, manufacturing, and assembly of Apple's products worldwide."

      Where's Corning? I thought their Gorilla Glass was used on Apple productys as well as 70% of all smart phones.
