It's only in the past year that Samsung has (handily) outpaced Apple


FORTUNE: "Samsung's stock doesn't trade on US exchanges," writes the Bespoke Investment Group, "so hardly anyone here even looks at the stock."

Well, Bespoke did, and it produced the 10-year (above) and one-year chart (below). They show that over the long run, Apple (AAPL), as Bespoke put it, "crushed" Samsung.

Lately, however, not so much.


Thanks to Barrons' Tiernan Ray for spotting the report.
