Selection 4 out of 5 is the one the fanbois have been waiting for: Apple Inc. (AAPL)
music selection: “Rock Me” — Liz Phair
Apple is redonkulously cheap. P/E is under 17, P/B is under 6, and P/S is under 4. Which might look a little pricey but you can’t forget AAPL is the King of Cash. Thirty three point oh nine six billion in cash and short term is a lot of bones. There is more. Apple is growing sales at about a 7% a year clip. And Margins are about 39%. Current yield is 1.60%.
As far as options returns, AAPL150717P00125000 sold today for 2.05. That comes out to 14.25% annualized for putting capital at risk 42 days. A good return for an issue with a lot of safety built in and a growth kicker.
Devour your prey raptors!
