Apple shares in Warren Buffett's top 3 investments :

The Apple action is the 3rd most massive position of the investment company Berkshire Hathaway, owned by the successful investor and billionaire Warren Buffett. In the first quarter of the year 2017 Warren Buffett bought nearly 72 million shares of Apple, bringing the total number of shares held by Berkshire Hathaway to more than $ 129 million.

At the current Apple share, Warren Buffett's and his company's investments amount to more than $ 19 billion. Buffett plays big and if he takes such big bets it is because he has good reasons. At the time of its first purchases, Apple's shares have lost in value given the fear that the slowdown in sales in China will signal weaknesses to come for the apple brand. The Apple stock was then an interesting market for Warren Buffett who with his company bought it en masse.

China then showed signs of recovery in sales of Apple products, while rumors that the next iPhone to include new features like 3D detection also helped push the stock price up . This is logical, since such a technology could create demand and push users of smartphones to renew their devices for the branded products to the apple.

The potential of this technology and the next iPhone suggests that the sales of the technology giant could increase strongly by 2018, so this action is key in Warren Buffett 's portfolio, which explains why the billionaire invested as much as one - Money on this stock and that many investors do the same.
