Ask a Fool: How Could Apple's PE Be So Low!

In the following video, Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker takes a question from a Fool reader, who asks, "Why are shares of the most valuable and most profitable company in the world trading at a P/E of half its peers? Apple! (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) "

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 over 1,000% gains. However, after the company's recent long backslide, 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.

    Its rotten. They will need another loan to survive as the trend continues; no longer competitive, institutional investors are moving away, individuals are moving their 401k Fidelity funds into non Apple funds, and Apple stock is today where Nokia was in Jan of 2001, while Nokia stock is where Apple was in 2009.

    I think you are clearly illogical here. Apple has so many funds that with 0 growth they can survive for 5 years and they still run the world's largest hedge fund. Nokia was in deep debt

    Why is Apple P/E low?

    Because a group of analysts coerced into bringing the stock price low so that they could rake in lots of corrupt money and they were successful.
