Market Snapshot: November 2014 ValuationsNovember 11, 2014
YCharts Research released its monthly Valuation Snapshot Report for November 2014. In addition to all the distinctive market- and sector-level valuation and operational metrics you're used to seeing every month, read this report to find out why... 1. It is unlikely that perpetual growth in the Energy sector will be anywhere near as bad as what the market is pricing in. 2. Italian oil major Eni may (or may not) be a screaming bargain right now. 3. You shouldn't be shocked if Taser International's stock price falls. Of course, this report also has lists of over- and under-valued liquid stocks, as well as our valuation heatmaps that hone in on under- and overvalued industries in the Energy and Industrials sectors, respectively.Download Report
Apple is a failed computer company. If not for an emergency cash injection by Microsoft MSFT in 1997, the name Apple would now be nothing more than a nostalgic entry on a Wikipedia page in the same way that Atari, Commodore, Sinclair, Tandy, and Kaypro are. But unlike its defunct competitors, Apple sprang out of the ashes of its personal computing defeat as a glorious phoenix. Its present incarnation is that of a purveyor of internet-connected portable entertainment devices—a product category that it has defined as its first mover and shaped as its greatest innovator. Every success it has had in the last 10 years—every jump in revenues and profitability—has been a result of its status as a market leader in mobile entertainment, and its entire product line-up at present is comprised of products and accessories that support (or are being superseded by) its iPhone franchise. The problem is that opportunities to define a new product categories happen only rarely. As such, Apple’s future growth depends less on its ability to innovate than on its ability to compete successfully within well-defined market constraints. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, but Apple’s management is taking steps to keep its momentum in the mobile phone space going.Download Report

Praise for YCharts Reports
Several times a year we have to listen to talking heads in print and video lazily using...silly quotes [like "sell in May"] as fodder to fill their articles or air time... Then I read [The Big Picture: Sell in May?] which was refreshingly original and I applaud you for it.

Earlier this evening I completed reviewing your August 8th EPS Revision Heat Maps report.
Excellent and timely information that will help me greatly to hone my trade...The information in this report is great. I particularly like page 2, where you drill down from the Healthcare Sector, to the industries of said sector to the companies in the Medical care industry.

You have a gift for talking about complex issues in a way that most people can understand the main points -- benefits and risks.
