AAPL, Google stocks
The Motley Fool looks at ":" Apple, Google, Wal-Mart, and Disney. "I have no idea whether the iPod will still be around in 20 years. It may have made Apple trendy again in investing circles, but this pick has nothing to do with the company's recent success in digital music. In fact, I feel better about Apple's stock performance in the long run than in the near term. That's because Apple is a survivor. Even as its personal computer business lost market share, the company found a way to matter as a niche player. Even though its computer business is booming again thanks to iPod users migrating back to the Mac platform, that's certainly not the best reason to place Apple shares under your pillow. Simply put, the company oozes innovation."
