It's Time to Get a Bargain on Apple
Ed Butowsky is going to owe me a steak dinner.
Butowsky is the managing partner at Chapwood Investments. He’s a good guy. And we often cross paths during our appearances on cable finance programs.
During our most recent get-together, we got into a spirited debate about one of my favorite tech stocks: Apple Inc.

But you’ll be an even bigger winner…Full Story
