Apple Inc. (AAPL), Starbucks Corporation (SBUX): The Greatest Piece of Investing Advice I’ve Ever Gotten

Of course, the past doesn’t predict the future. But by the same token, there are good reasons these companies’ stock prices have done so well over the course of time.

So when you find those winners, well, you need to hitch your wagon to those stars and enjoy the ride.
