On current and future value, AAPL clearly has AMZN beat.
And while Amazon has Apple beat in top-line growth, Apple’s bottom-line growth surpassed Amazon’s last quarter.
Amazon has much more cash on a per-share basis despite having roughly half the total cash Apple holds.
The easy answer is Apple.
Which stock is better Amazon or Apple?
Apple stock has shown 69% year-to-date growth in stock price while Amazon stock has shown only 20% growth. Amazon’s price growth has been lower than the S&P 500’s, which has risen by 28% in 2019. However, an in-depth look into different metrics shows the upside for AMZN stock compared to AAPL stock.
Is Amazon stock a good buy?
The IBD Stock Checkup Tool shows that Amazon stock currently has a strong IBD Composite Rating of 99 out of a best-possible 99. The rating means Amazon stock currently outperforms 96% of all stocks in terms of the most important fundamental and technical stock-picking criteria.
Is Apple stock a good buy?
Apple stock may not be the great buy it was last year. This is particularly evident by a recent run-up in the stock’s price-to-earnings ratio — from below 17 last June to nearly 26 today. But a 26 P/E for Apple stock is fair given the durability of its iPhone business and rapid growth in services and wearables.
Why is Amazon stock more expensive than Apple?
AMZN’s ratios for P/E and EV/EBITDA are higher (more expensive) relative to AAPL’s because Amazon is simply no where near as profitable as Apple. So their revenue growth potential is smaller than Amazon’s and they’re not likely able to increase prices significantly.
