apple logoIf you are a low risk investor but are looking for high yet steady returns, you have your work cut out for you. Usually, high returns and low risks do not go together, it is usually the other way around. The higher the risk, the higher the return. Well, if you are itching to get into the high flying tech market, you have to understand that all the best plays are pretty much taken.

What I mean by this is that you need to spend a lot of money on very risky stocks to enjoy some of the phenomenal returns on investments some tech stocks have been producing. For example, in Biotech, Pharmacyclics were recently bought out for over 200 dollars. The interesting thing about the stock is that, as recent as 6 years ago, it was selling for around 1 dollar a share. That is how phenomenal the return on investment is on certain sectors. However, the bad news is that, for every pharmacyclic stock, there are dozens, if not hundreds of stocks that will remain flat or end up costing you money.

One stock that is low risk and has a very high chance of preserving your investment capital as well as having a good chance of appreciating further is Apple Computers (NASDAQ:AAPL). Apple is trading at only 17 times its earnings, this is unheard of for a tech stock. Also, it has over 178 billion dollars in cash and investments. This company is not going anywhere anytime soon. A lot of big players are buying into Apple. Also, Apple has been projected to be worth 1 trillion dollars in the future. If you are looking for a great company to buy, you might want to consider Apple Computers.
