Warren Buffet’s Halal Investments

In this video, I analyze one of Berkshire Hathaway’s larger investments: Apple Stock.
Specifically, I examine the case for and against the halalness of investing in Apple stock and the prospects for profitability from such an investment.
I point out that in my estimation the income Apple earns from non-halal activities is trivial, it’s an overall positive to the world, however, it’s recent issuance of a credit card makes me less comfortable designating it as a Halal investment. Overall, I gave it a halal rating of 8/10
I also point out that from an investment standpoint, Apple’s strengths include a strong brand, robust dividend and fair price. It’s weaknesses include a heavy reliance on brand strength.
I have no interests, long or short positions in Apple.
