Which Is a Better Buy After Earnings, Apple or Google?

In the following video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner breaks down what we saw come out of the earnings reports from Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) this quarter. Google demonstrated that it was able to stably grow its cost-per-click figure and had a strong surge after earnings were released, whereas Apple didn't hit analysts' expectations and experienced a big sell-off today. Andrew tells us which of these stocks he would prefer to pick up at the moment at these prices.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 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.

    I don't see AAPL as a better buy for a key reason - it is principally product, rather than service, based. iTunes might be inroads to an ecosystem, but Android is growing by leaps and bounds - and people can purchase music through iTunes, GooglePlay, or Amazon.

    GOOG can continue with its lead in providing search and other services, with a minor percentage of its business attributed to products. If there isn't more in the pipeline or something of significant novelty AAPL can fall off the cliff as far as valuation is concerned.
