Re: A Vote from Buffett Goes a Long Way
As much as Apple might not be quite as strong as it was a year ago, it's still a pretty safe investment. iPhones will continue to sell, even if in not quite such astronomical numbers and it likely won't be long until Apple comes out with a new 'innovation' that the fans need to have.

A Vote from Buffett Goes a Long Way
He may have bought low, but Buffett's investment will help to send the stock back up, even for a while -- such is his reputation a stamp of approval

>> Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway is known as a value investor. The buy indicates that it's betting that Apple's intrinsic worth is more than Wall Street believes, and that over time its growth will convince other investors.
