Analysis Using Kapitall Tools- Apple, Inc. Salesforce.com, and Amazon.com One company whose financial numbers do not tell the full story of the company is Apple (AAPL). Apple is the most widely-watched company, but shares cannot catch a break ever since peaking at $700 in September, 2012. More irrational is that Apple’s Price of Profit (or “POP” as it is known on Kapitall) is just 9. By comparison, Salesforce.com (CRM) has a forward P/E of 93 and Amazon.com (AMZN) has a forward P/E of 73.61 (figures provided by finviz.com). Apple’s valuation hints to investors that the sentiment turned negative on the company. The market is frustrated with the excessively low valuation. In the hedge fund space, this was apparent because Einhorn’s lawsuit against Apple to issue preferred shares was successful. Einhorn dropped the suit after Apple eventually unbundled a proposal that would have complicated this preference share possibility. Second, media continues to speculate about new products from Apple, despite the recently successful release of iPhone 5. The rumors include iTV, am iPad Mini, and an iPhone 5S.
