iPhone 6 and is Apple stock value at peak? (Giri Devanur)

Being an avid user of Apple and all of its products since 1994 (except Apple TV), I have 3 major problems with iPhone6. If Steve jobs was alive, may be he would have never released this phone to market.

1. The Camera: iPhone has a camera which protrudes out. Ouch!!! So beautify designed product, except for one damn thing which sticks out. How did Mr. Ive allow such an obvious flaw?

2. The grip: This phone has the smoothest edges. Faaaar too smooth. You are bound to drop it. Its so curvy and smooth, I hated when it dropped. Yes I did drop it a few times!!

3. The fragile glass: The smooth edges leads to obvious drop which breaks the glass. I know, it breaks some hearts too. Couldn’t they have made a little stronger and more durable glass. And its very expensive to fix it. Watch out.

OK enough of complaining…today AAPL stock is at $117 and approximately $682 billion (yes…$682,000,000,000). This still a very low valuation compared to its industry peers.  P/E is still 15.79. Where as Google (GOOG) has a valuation of $354B valuation and P/E of 25. So, apple has a lot more to grow.

Will it touch a $1,000,000,000,000 (1Trillion $) valuation…probably.

Whats the next break through innovation? Apple pay or Apple watch or Apple TV(with a TV screes..not just a box, which even I will buy).

Or has the stock peaked? Its a trillion dollar question.
