Naturally, it’s time to ask: “How can I profit from this?” Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer. Ideally, there would be one or two tickers predicted to soar from the rising Smart Home trend, but there isn’t such a company out there yet.

John C. Dvorak, Opinion Article for PCMag: Home automation has been on the back burner for decades, and is something Icomplain about at least once a year. It was in the news again after Apple's WWDC this week, when observers looking to squeeze some news out of the long keynote seized on news about HomeKit. This led me to the HomeKit homepage, which finally answered all my "what is it good for?" questions. Absolutely nothing! Let's amuse ourselves with Apple's assertions.
