People lucky enough to own shares of Skyworks Solutions should buy Tim Cook a beer.

The chip maker's stock has more than doubled over the past 12 months thanks largely to its close relationship with Apple. Skyworks (SWKS) is a key iPhone supplier, providing chips used in the devices.

It's a great time to be linked with the iPhone. Apple sold a whopping 91 million iPhone devices during the first half of fiscal 2015 alone.

Skyworks received an additional vote of confidence in March when it was invited to join the exclusive S&P 500.
