Why Google Inc (GOOG) Will Continue to Beat Apple Inc. (AAPL)

February 27th, 2013

google apple1Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is beating Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) senseless in the stock market if not yet the marketplace. Unencumbered by leadership questions or shareholder lawsuits, Google shares have gained nearly 12% so far in 2013 compared to a grim 17% decline for shares of Apple. The trend has traders wondering if “long Google, short Apple” is the new version of “long Apple, short Google” as a tech hedge core position.

Despite recently hitting an all-time Brian Sozzi of NBG Productions thinks shares of Google still have room to run higher. In the attached clip Sozzi waxes euphoric of Google “showing a little leg” with clunky $1,500 glasses and the prospect of a self-driving car. Even if these products are a long way from becoming anything more than niche products, what we’ve seen so far beats Apple’s Kremlin-style approach to releases.

In a sense Google is benefiting from the skepticism that plagued Apple at the beginning of the century. Google stores would seem preposterous if Apple hadn’t already proven retail success is possible for tech centered companies. It’s now GOOG that gets the benefit of the doubt for innovation and is seemingly immune to shareholder outcry despite the founders having almost total control of the organization.

    apple needs to release more then 1 version of an item at a time. They need different versions / types of iphones / ipads. Its the same every year.. new phone / new tablet / new iPod Nano… you know what’s coming from apple so the excitement is gone and people are tired of dishing out the apple premium every year knowing their top of the line phone will be replaced in 11months. Google and Samsung have caught up to apple and passed them from a hard wear standpoint the only thing holding them back is the phones O.S. People are excited about the new products from google / Samsung / sony / windows… because they are just that, new.. The only difference in look and feel of my old iphone 3gs and the new iphone 5 is.5 of an inch, yeah its faster but its pretty much the same phone I bought 3+ years ago. apple is far and away the best quality phone on the market and has been since its original release but even though they are the best they need a refresh of the look and feel of both the iphone and ipad.

    Wow, for a minute there after reading the headline I thought Google had done something significant and was making more money than Apple. But no, they’re talking about the casino that is the stock market. Heck, I’ve had more ups and downs in Vegas than Apple has had in the market. Not worried, long term.

    I think I’ll write an article and titled it, “Why Apple Will Continue to Beat Google”, but in my article I WILL be talking about who’s making the money here. (Spoiler: Apple made $13.1B last quarter on $54.5B in revenue, up 18% over a year earlier, and Google made $2.9B on $12.9 in revenue.)

    Now who is beating whom again?

    I think what you’re seeing is money leaving one bubble for another – except this is leaving Apple undervalued. A year from now, Google will deflate just as quickly, and Apple’s market valuation will have been corrected. If we can keep analysts from manipulating the stock into oblivion.
