NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- When you compare Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and Google (GOOG - Get Report) you must consider both fundamental and technical analysis. When Apple traded below $400 in April and in June, the stock became the cheapest value stock in the ValuEngine universe and had a buy rating. Google on the other hand has been overvalued all year so far.The ploys of billionaire Carl Icahn fueled strength in Apple shares as the stock returned to the $500 threshold for the first time since Jan. 23. According to Thomson/First Call 18 analysts have a strong buy rating and 22 have a buy rating. There are 11 hold ratings, and one each has under-perform and sell ratings.
