As I own some shares in both Google and Apple stocks, I have been noticing that my gains from owning Google shares has been wiped out because of the poor performance in the Apple stock. Basically, before the launch of the iPhone 5 where Apple finally managed to (at least temporarily) stop the bleeding, Apple continued losing market share to Android globally. I have been seriously thinking whether to take some profits off the table for Google and adding it to my Apple holdings, or completely get rid of my Apple stocks. My question is this, do you think that Apple can continue maintain its relevance in the smartphone industry in the future? Or will Apple's iPhone be losing so badly to Google's Android platforms? I would not be worried if Apple is only facing stiff competition from Samsung, but it seems that Google and HTC are also getting more and more aggressive at selling smartphones as well with their Nexus and HTC One line-ups. I know this may not be the best place to get unbiased opinions, but I would just like to hear your thoughts and decide for myself whether it is a rationale argument or not.
