This Is Why Apple Is Undervalued at $500 a Share

The following video is part of today's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, senior analyst Jason Moser, and advisor Jeff Fischer discuss the latest business news. While Apple made headlines for recent lawsuits against both Motorola Mobility and Samsung, it made even bigger headlines on Monday, when shares crossed the $500 mark. In this segment, the guys share why they believe Apple's legal strategy is a smart one. They also analyze why, despite hitting $500, Apple's stock is at a more attractive valuation today than several years ago, when it was selling for much less.

    I sure enjoy hearing that Apple is undervalued as opposed to those naysayers continually claiming that shareholders should sell Apple before the bubble bursts. I'm not sure if Apple will ever be worth $700, but certainly $550 within the next twelve months seems doable. It's good to see investors loosening their pursestrings and pouring some money into Apple over the last month or so. I do hope this Apple sentiment lasts a little longer.
