Jim Cramer Apple 2

In the midst of the recent bombshell from the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) in the form of an antitrust lawsuit against Apple Inc. AAPL, CNBC’s very own Jim Cramer remains a beacon of positivity, continuing to champion the tech giant as a solid investment option for shareholders.

A Silver Lining: Despite the regulatory turbulence, Cramer sees the DOJ’s legal move against Apple as a curious opportunity in the investment landscape. Drawing a parallel from history, he points out how analysts’ reluctance to endorse Apple has historically paved the way for enhanced buying prospects.

The crux of the DOJ’s accusations revolves around Apple’s alleged stronghold on the smartphone market, particularly through its iPhone. The lawsuit contends that Apple engineers a labyrinth of obstacles making it onerous and expensive for users and app developers to stray from its ecosystem. Accusations extend to Apple’s smartphone and Apple Watch divisions, along with its advertising, browser, FaceTime, and news functionalities.

Conversely, Cramer asserts that the DOJ’s arsenal lacks the necessary evidence to indict Apple. Contrasting the case with the infamous antitrust litigation against Microsoft, which dominated the global market, Cramer notes Apple’s distinct positioning. To him, this legal scuffle is no more than another golden ticket for savvy investors eyeing Apple’s stock.

Despite the ruckus created by the lawsuit, Apple’s stocks witnessed a marginal dip of just over 4% at the market’s close.

“I just got a whole brand spanking new reason to buy Apple, don’t trade it,” Cramer affirmed. “I know a loser case when I see one, and the United States of America versus Apple is a loser.”

The Big Picture: Labeled as a substantial threat to its core values and innovative spirit by Apple, the lawsuit’s repercussions could potentially shake the foundations of the company’s business model. Insights from a prominent analyst hint that the case’s resolution might chart the course for the tech behemoth’s future. Against this tumultuous backdrop, Cramer’s unwavering vote of confidence in Apple offers solace to jittery investors.
