Why apple is no longer a growth company. Phones and tablets getting commoditized and Apple is not able to find a new breakthrough product. They must be missing Steve Jobs!

Amigobulls Apple analysis reveals that it is one of the best stocks of the decade. The company has consistently come out with innovative products. Recent patent applications show that Apple is still a growth stock, and the same is supported by Apple Inc financial analysis. One such patent shows how electronic devices such as the iPhone could be used to detect temperature, pressure etc.; another describes a touch sensitive button that can prevent accidental inputs; yet another one which uses face detection and recognition for personal computing device control; and many more. The company has also patented a way to make sapphire screens stronger.

Apple Inc financial analysis also reveals the huge pile of cash the firm is sitting on. Even after initiating massive buyback of Apple shares, the firm has a huge cash reserve as seen from Apple stock price history. To put this in perspective, Apple had 160 billion (as of Apr, 2014) which was three times as much cash on hand as that of the United States government, and over twice as much as that of United Kingdom.

Our financial analysis of Apple also highlights the Apple revenue growth which has been solid, operating efficiency, and the total assets of Apple. In addition to this Apple industry analysis proves that it is a value stock when we compare valuation metrics against industry average. For example, Apple is trading at a fairly reasonable PE, as seen from Apple PE ratio chart, when compared with peers and industry average.
