In this video, tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner talks about Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) and tells us why the company's stock is underpriced. Aggregating analyst estimates gives a price of around $584, which shows a 45% increase from Apple's current share price of below $400. Apple's operations are valued at 6 times its cash flow, and analysts are predicting a 15% long-term growth rate for the company.
Andrew also mentions two of Apple's biggest strengths: brand name and ecosystem. The company's reputation creates brand loyalty, which is why the company sees repeat customers.
Meanwhile, as investors hope for a dividend increase, Andrew looks ahead to Apple's future areas for growth in creating a new customer product category with the upcoming iWatch or the iTV.
