  • "Matt Margolis and his Obscure Analyst blog has put in hundreds of hours of research covering Apple and GT Advanced Technologies to support the business case for investment. As a career retired CPA, financial analyst, financial auditor and also IT auditor, I appreciate the way Matt lays down his sources and references with meticulous detail. He offers his opinions and conclusions based on these researched findings, and begs others to follow along to reach their own conclusions and do their own due diligence. I personally want to thank you in advance for your remarkable efforts and how it has helped me become knowledgeable on GT Advanced Technologies, now one of my biggest holdings (from under $10/share.) Matt, I have been doing my own investments for over 20 years now, with considerable success. I look forward to seeing this gem growing over the next few years into the company you have described so well."
