You're Crazy Not to Buy Apple Today

The Motley Fool's chief technology officer, Jeremy Phillips, thinks that Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) is a screaming buy at $500. In this discussion with analyst Austin Smith, Jeremy addresses several of the most important questions that confront the company today:

  • How is Apple positioning itself for the coming "smart TV" revolution? 
  • Did Apple handle the iPhone maps issue correctly, and was the issue overblown in the media? 
  • How does the company's valuation compare to some of its key competitors (an "Apple-to-apples" comparison)?

Apple has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool superinvestor David Gardner, and has soared 219.20% since he recommended it in January 2008. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential, and he helps like-minded investors profit while Wall Street catches up.

    Apple's going to be in a $566 +/- 10% trading range with the uncertainty around competition from Android and Windows 8 ecosystems heating up more and more as 2013 proceeds. There nothing wrong with buying at $510 and selling at $600 for 15% plus gains.

    I've recently purchased a few shares of Apple and may buy more, however, I'm not swayed by this presentation. I'm sorry, but issues with a product rushed to market is NOT good business, the Map issue illustrates poor decision making by management on many levels. If similar issues creep up because a new product must reach market at an accelerated rate, then I will regret buying my shares. I believe Apple is a very good value at these prices, but only if they continue to provide innovative and exceptional products that the market place will embrace. The next few months will tell if the recent management changes fixed the problem or if there is a more serious problem with Apple.
