Investing in Apple has proven to be a good move, and expert investors are taking notice.
Early this month, investing legend and Berkshire Hathaway chief executive officer Warren Buffett revealed that his company bought 75 million shares of Apple, adding to the 165.3 million shares it already owned. Analysts predicted that could be good news for Apple's stock value — which, indeed, promptly hit an all-time high.
If you invested in Apple a decade ago, you'd probably be feeling pretty good about it today. According to CNBC calculations, a $1,000 investment in 2008 would be worth more than $7,200 as of May 25, or over seven times as much, including price appreciation and dividend gains reinvested.
