I believe Team Cupertino will make one on the biggest business pivots of all time within the next 72 days – by year's end 2017.
You can bury your head in the sand and ignore it – and miss out on millions…
You can keep investing the way you always have – and trust that Wall Street will do the right thing…
Or, you can take control over your financial destiny – as the company creates another $1 trillion in wealth.
How? Glad you asked.
Millions of investors think of Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) as a device company, which is why they fawn over every new iPhone release, hyperventilate when a new MacBook comes out, and go bananas when the next generation iPad launches.
In reality, Apple hasn't been that company for years.
Behind closed doors, the company has been driven by the ecosphere since at least 2010, in a shift that's only just now becoming apparent to the public.
Many investors – present company excluded – think they've got this covered, but I'm not so sure.
If they did, then they wouldn't be fawning all over the latest iPhone releases, nor would they be hyper-concerned about talk of poor sales and supplier problems, as was the case Thursday when Apple's shares got pounded.
The fact that traders and investors are willing to speculate over such a short-sighted news item tells me that they still don't see the big picture like we do. It also tells me that they have no idea what the ecosphere actually means for Apple, let alone how valuable the company will become.
Trash-talking news about this Apple supplier or that one has plagued Apple since the dawn of time. More to the point, it's kept retail investors out of one of the greatest stocks in the history of financial markets. Again, present company excluded.
Apple's already the single largest wealth creator in the history of the stock market by virtue of the fact that it's created more than $1 trillion in wealth for savvy investors. Every $10,000 invested when the company IPO-ed is now worth a jaw-dropping $3,183,690 as of last night's close.
That pales in comparison to Apple's next move.
