MILLBURN, N.J. ( Stockpickr) -- Apple (AAPL) seems to be one of those rare companies and stocks that come around once in a generation, whose fundamental metrics more than justify the stock's performance. Intel (INTC) was that stock in the 1990s.
So I'm curious: Which stock is next? Are there other tech companies that have even better metrics than Apple and could be up-and-comers?
To find these stocks, I selected two key metrics on which I place a high degree of importance when evaluating a stock from a fundamental perspective: return on equity and gross margins. The companies I found have ROE greater than Apple's 45.6% and gross margins greater than Apple's 44.7%.Here are six tech stocks that rater better than Apple.
