How Do I Invest In AR?

I think the best way to invest in AR is to find a blue-chip tech company investing in the technology and go with that.

It has been rumoured that Apple has been ramping up their efforts to product a VR/AR headset…

Personally, I think Apple’s stock looks almost perfect at the moment.

• Apple’s smartphone market share is above 50%:

• Buffett recently added to his Apple Warchest:

• Apple’s financials look great, especially the cash mountain they are sitting on:

Personally, I think Apple would be a very worth while investment in the next few years…

Buffett must agree with me, because Apple is currently is biggest stock holding…
