Apple part 1: A $1 trillion company at 18x P/E


Apple part 1: A $1 trillion company at 18x P/E

Last week I attended an Apple summit hosted by a prominent Apple analyst. One of the main lamentations shared by both the host and a majority of the audience (for this was not a gathering of investment analysts) was why Apple, the most valuable company and arguably the most recognisable brand in the world, was persistently priced by the market like it was going out of business – all the way up to $1 trillion.

  1. In my opinion, even though it’s true that Apple didn’t have much of the competition in the past, future looks alot different to it. Huawei already passed Apple this year in q2 2018 to become the number two smartphone vendor. Companies like Huawei and OnePlus are willing to sell premium products for a lot less price than Apple to capture the market share. What’s happening in Indian phone market is a good indicator of future of smart phone sales. So it’s interesring to see how the future looks like for Apple. Thanks.
