Selling Apple To Buy Berkshire: A Great Trade For Conservative Investors
Passive investment vehicles have created distortions in the valuation of many public companies. Apple, while it is a fantastic business, trades at nearly a $3T market cap and a significant premium to historical multiples. Investors looking for exposure to Apple should consider buying undervalued shares of Berkshire Hathaway. Berkshire is a well diversified company, with a large equity portfolio and subsidiaries including the BNSF railroad, Berkshire Hathaway Energy, and GEICO.
Apple: The Growth Story Goes On
Apple had a 33.5% stock growth during the previous year, reaching a $3 trillion valuation mark, making it the highest valued company globally. The company reported a 29% QoQ revenue growth, but the number does not include iPhone 13 sales yet. These sales will be reflected in the current quarter results. Apple services have almost doubled the gross margin compared to the rest of the Apple products, and the segment is vigorously increasing. Silicon Valley giants, including Apple, are gearing up to materialize the untapped potential offered by the Metaverse through its AR/VR developments. I am bullish on the stock as it boasts a 19% upside in the coming months while promising heavy future returns through rigorous growth.
