FLASHBACK | McCullough: 'Apple Is the Most Over-Owned Stock In Human History' (7/22/15)

Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough didn't mince any words discussing Apple (AAPL) this past summer on Fox Business' Mornings with Maria. The following day McCullough told the London-based City A.M.:

"APPLE IS THE MOST OVER-OWNED STOCK IN HUMAN HISTORY." 

Here's a snippet from the conversation:

Do you think Apple and tech stocks in general are overvalued?

 

A) Apple isn’t a value stock – it’s the most over-owned stock in human historywhere “valuation” comes into the debate on down days. It’s actually a product-cycle stock, and all cycle stocks should look relatively “cheap” at the peak of a cycle

 

B) What Morgan Stanley calls “New Tech” trades at an average P/E of 149.5x forward earnings. Overvalued is an understatement. It’s obviously a bubble.

 

Is this another tech bubble? Does this look like the dotcom bubble?

 

Yes (see above).

Across market histories, from tulips to dot.bombs, every bubble is unique. Instead of the internet, I think we’ll call this one the cloud of expectations.

Here's a look at what's happened to Apple since.
