That’s how good he has been — a rock star CEO if there ever was one.
That is a simple fact not lost on Apple investors these days or for that matter Microsoft’s Bill Gates. Gates has known all about Steve’s penchant for the blockbuster new product for some time now.
Speaking before the "All Things Digital" conference in 2007, PC Guy had this to say to about Mac:
"I would give a lot to have Steve’s tastes. He has an intuitive taste for both people and products that is very hard for me to explain."
Jobs according to Gates somehow has "it"-something few people can ever explain or better yet achieve.
And the cold hard truth is it can’t be bottled or entirely reproduced, proving once again that even in giant companies individuals matter.
So when Steve Jobs loses some weight or god forbid has another brush with cancer, the prospect of it all weighs heavily on the company he founded.
And fair or not, Apple investors have suddenly found themselves poorer partly because of it.
But as good as Jobs is, there is an entire cutting edge company that stands behind him. And with the economy now buried in a deep recession, Apple’s future goes well beyond the talents of just one man.
Meanwhile, the fundamental outlook for the computer industry in 2009 is decidedly negative. In fact, recent estimates have forecast that the global unit sales of PC’s will increase only by 1% this year.
That would be a dramatic departure from 2008, when unit sales growth came in at 11% after fading fast over the last half of the year.
That has given the company yet another layer of doubt, leaving investor’s to worry about how Apple will weather the downturn.

P.S. With the economic stimulus package now part of the rescue plan, The Wealth Advisory‘s team has already identified two stocks set to soar-no matter what happens to the rest of the market.
In fact, these two industry leaders stand to reap a big portion of the profits as new "green energy" mandates add over $100 billion to energy infrastructure investments over the next few years. We’ll be releasing these two new trades, along with our full analysis, in the coming weeks. To learn more about The Wealth Advisory click here.
