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.
