Brands in recession

There’s many a story of consumers trading down in a recession. This is seeing many brands resorting to promotions and the growth of store brands

And then there’s Apple.

It’s earnings reports, and market performance suggest a disconnect with the realities that seem to affect other brands.

This article by a financial columnist ascribes it to the power of the Apple brand. Defining it and consistently delivering to is a key reason for its continued success.

But as long as they keep innovating at being simple, they have growth times ahead.
