Apple has tons of growth left (probably more than google)... Both are great companies, but apple is being heavily discounted by wall street. Sell some Google at 1000/share and buy apple at 500/share. The no brainer of the year.. but congrats to google longs!
Can't compare. Apples and oranges (forgive the pun). Apple is in consumer electronics with a new product cycle every 18mo's. Google just conquered the rare new one for internet searching which is mobile. GOOG has a monopoly on a still fast growing market. Apple is a good brand but where is the next $100B market for them?
"Google just conquered the rare new one for internet searching which is mobile. "
Really? Really? You need to do your homework, sport. Google has conquered nothing. 75% of all Global mobile search is done on an Apple device and 85% of ALL GLOBAL MOBILE E-COMMERCE is done on an ipad alone. Apple controls the gateway devices that drive search and e-commerce and Apple can flip the switch to "off" on Google any time Apple likes. And they eventually will.
Apple has 500 million people locked into their products with IOS/app store/icloud/etc. who wants to update their products every 2 to 3 years. There are still another 2 billion people who potentially could join the apple cult, and almost none of the current users want to jump ship. Even without new products like ITV or IWatch or Isearch or Iwallet or IWhatever they still could double their revenue in the next 2 years. But no one envisioned Ipod, or Iphone or Ipad before they were announced, so to think apple will never have a blockbuster category is naïve. Only apple can make must have categories as Samsung proved with their weak attempt to beat apple to the watch category.
And no "real" new products they have an ipad (wo sizes), ipod (various colors and storage, iphone (colors, extra row) and Mac (pretty awesome for graphics/music/arts). No real innovation since Steve past. Google on the other hand is into everything and I mean everything! Oh and did I mention they make real money!
