Smartest move you will ever make; take profits on google and buy apple...
They are roughly the same market cap currently once you factor in apple's 150 Billion in cash. yet one has a P/E of 26 and the other P/E of 11. to make matters worse, google gives its shareholders nothing, and apple is giving 100 billion dollars to its shareholders. Yikes ! no brainer..
You are an IDIOT! Apple has an iPod in a few variations a new looking iPhone that they turned into an iPad and Mini iPad and of course the PC's Macs. They have been pushing the same thing for years.Google has sooo much growth potential with added products and services. Google is a growth story still in its infancy! If you get out of google now odds are you won't be able to afford it later.
Time will tell. I see apple growing faster than google... 20% market share in the hottest fields (smartphone/tablet) and tons of growth ops (payments, tv, watches, etc). Google is more like Microsoft in that it already has a huge market share of its only profitable business (search ads). Everything else it does is speculative and not profitable. Sounds like Microsoft to me.
Sometimes taking profits and paying the taxes is still better than seeing all your profits evaporate. Look at those who bought Apple in Jan 2012 at 400/share and saw 80% gains completely evaporate by Jan 2013. The beauty of apple's buyback and dividend hikes is this is unlikely to ever happen to apple again. However, google does no capital sharing and makes it prone to the same kind of correction apple did prior to its stock buyback.
