    Professor Damodaran's justification of selling Apple sounds a lot like confirmation bias.

    Also, despite the fact that the Professor owned it, I'm not convinced it was ever a pure valuation/Graham/Buffett type stock. It was always a price multiple/qualitatitive/growth/Fisher type stock - and a great one at that.
