Do Investors Hate Apple?

With Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) seemingly full steam ahead into the holiday gift season with two new blockbuster products, the iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini, why has the market been showing Apple's share price no holiday love? In this video, Motley Fool tech analyst Eric Bleeker discusses what has driven Apple's share price down nearly 25% recently, what role Samsung has to play in the recent drop, and when we can finally expect to see the markets once again treating Apple with the respect it deserves.

There is absolutely no argument 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. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and more importantly, your portfolio) going forward.

    Eric and Austin: Good video, I agree Apple stock with P/E 12 is a strong buy. You could also buy Samsung with P/E 11. This is not a zero sum game here, both the smartphone and tablet markets are growing quickly and there is room for both Apple and Samsung which are both very profitable.

    And a P/E of 11-12 is not "expensive," as it's well under the market multiple of 15-16 for average companies growing less than 5%! Both Apple and Samsung are growing earnings over 20-30% a year so are strong buys. As soon as everyone finishes their fiscal cliff tax selling, Apple stock will go up again. Fool on.
