A scandal will be in the news and the stocks will fall for that specific company. However, judging by the nature of these corporations: oligopoly in an industry that has a very high cost of entry and high rate of bankruptcy, Apple and other tech giants are here to stay and they cannot fail. Because in which case, where will the people get their source of high end tech products that are well-designed and functional by a team of highly trained professionals.
