(AAPL) as another example of a company with a big moat.The fund manager pointed to Darling Ingredients Inc. (DAR), the agricultural processing company, as one example.According to the fund manager, dividends play an important role in total returns, something that can be ignored when stocks are flying higher as they were over the past nine years.
