  • The Great Beta Hoax: Not An Accurate Measure Of Risk, After All [View article]
    It is wise to look at a company's total picture to assess its overall risk. For example, cyclical stocks are more risky after interest rates have already been raised a number of times because the economy would likely be closer to a recession. On the other hand cyclical stocks are less risky when the Fed begins lowering rates or takes steps to stimulate the economy after the market has taken a significant beating as a result of a recession.

    Also, a look at the competitive environment and the company's revenue/earnings implications & the ability for the company to maintain and grow its market share is a wise analysis to assess risk.

    It is just not worth $200 yet.

    Mike Dirnt,

    Great question - Alcoa is an example of a stock that doesn't rise along with earnings over the long-term. It tends to trade closer to the price of aluminum.

    giofls,

    Not if we can buy them for $128 today. However, if the shares were $200 today, the forward PE would be 20.7 - not as attractive as today's valuation, but not outrageous either. When the price does reach that level, expected earnings are likely to be higher for the following year, so the valuation is likely to still be attractive.

    Moxi,

    Quarter to quarter really doesn't mean much. Year-over-year and annual trends mean more over the long-term. Apple is doing just fine over the long-term. Both Google and Apple can both thrive in this environment. Google is primarily advertising, so it is not an apples-to-apples comparison. This isn't a boxing match between Apple and Google - both have very different businesses which can thrive simultaneously.

    Moxi,

    The Google car is only in the testing phase. It is only allowed to be tested in certain areas such as California and Nevada with certain requirements. It is not yet a legal means of transportation yet and is not yet a significant source of revenue for Google. I agree that it is a great innovative technology, but it is likely to take many years to be a money-maker for Google.

    inside man 55,

    That's a great point, cash flow is certainly an important factor. Apple's stock price is also closely correlated to its free cash flow. The trend looks similar to the EPS correlation.

    Benjamin,

    How can you jump to such a conclusion without seeing the actual sales figures. Why not wait until the quarterly report to see what is actually selling before giving up on the company. Apple is still growing revenue and earnings largely from iPhone sales, so I don't understand why you are so negative.

    Yes, there are many of them - how about biotech stocks that are not yet profitable. How about Amazon - where the stock rises more on revenue growth, but not EPS.

    SGK,

    The stock remains undervalued as compared to the broader market because of how quickly products develop in the tech space. The discount in the valuation is due to the uncertainty of Apple's ability to constantly innovate with existing products as well as new products.

    I appreciate your perspective. It would be great to see that materialize.

    SGK,

    So, you already knew my projections for Apple's EPS and share price over the long-term?

    Benjamin,

    It is not me that is implying that there is strong demand for the Apple Watch. There is a link in the article to a source that said that Tim Cook stated that demand for the Watch is exceeding Apple's supply.

  • Qorvo's Strong Stock Growth Is Being Driven By 4G [View article]
    Random Logic,

    Yes SWKS is a competitor. However, they are considered a part of the integrated circuit semiconductor industry as opposed to the broadline semis which QRVO is a part of.
