Currently way too undervalued for it to make any sense. Google and Samsung aren't going to eat their lunch just yet, but they're priced like they're the next [BlackBerry]. [M]eanwhile, they're still making a 20% profit margin and still growing, just maybe not as fast as their competitors. Once they start releasing new devices on a more frequent schedule they'll probably make a nice market share recovery, as most of their fans are crazy about Apple and Apple only.
There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. Eric Bleeker, The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple and the opportunities left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
