In the following video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner takes a look at Microsoft's valuation vs. Apple's . In his comparison, he shows investors that Apple -- which has such strong growth prospects compared to Microsoft's headwinds both in the PC market and the mobile space -- should not be trading at a deep discount compared to Microsoft on a P/E basis. It just doesn't make sense. He highlights how overly bearish the market sentiment has gotten toward Apple lately and tells investors why this represents an incredible buying opportunity for the long run.
It's been a frustrating path for Microsoft investors, who've watched the company fail to capitalize on the incredible growth in mobile over the past decade. However, with the release of its own tablet, along with the widely anticipated Windows 8 operating system, the company is looking to make a splash in this booming market. In this brand-new premium report on Microsoft, our analyst explains that while the opportunity is huge, the challenges are many. He's also providing regular updates as key events occur, so make sure to claim a copy of this report now by clicking here.
