One of my favourite TV commercials is an Apple iPhone advertisement that aired during the 2016 Summer Olympics. It featured iPhone photos of individuals from all around the world. The late poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou provides a voiceover, delivering part of her poem “Human Family”. In closing she twice recites the verse, “We are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike.” This is a powerful social statement. Interestingly, it can also be thought of in the context of investing.
