Apple: A Value Stock With A Growth Stock Valuation

Feb. 03, 2023 11:09 AM ETApple Inc. (AAPL)122 Comments


  • Our house view here is that markets' next major move is up. And if markets are going to move up, so too is Apple stock, due to its index weighting.
  • We rate Apple stock at Hold as a result.
  • As a single-stock pick, we choose to not own it in staff personal accounts, because it looks for all the world like a value play priced like a growth name.
  • And there are many indicators in the numbers that tell you the company is maturing, perhaps inexorably so. We think Apple's hegemonic days are numbered.
  • We're currently running a sale at my private investing ideas service, Growth Investor Pro, where members get access to portfolios, market alerts, real-time chat, and more. Learn More »
