Although Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) is a dominant technology company, its various business lines tend to peak and trough, which may cause suppliers’ orders and revenues to be inconsistent.

With the Congress’s in-depth study of the company’s business and recent insights on user data privacy (or lack thereof), some investors may wish to invest funds elsewhere.
Although Facebook’s performance over the past few years will be difficult to duplicate, we asked three contributors to screen financial and business models to launch....More>>>
Investors in International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE: IBM) are again disappointed by the company’s weak growth figures in the first quarter of 2018.
On Tuesday afternoon, IBM announced its second consecutive quarter of revenue growth, indicating that the large investment in cloud computing and artificial intelligence over the years may eventually begin to achieve results, but the stock initially fell more than 5%.
