    Now that the new numbers are using standard accounting, I believe it is up to us, the amateurs, to point out the nutty disparity between Apple’s EPS share multiples VS some others out there, without the massive growth potential.

    Yahoo! shows the Fwd P/E as 16.98.

    I wonder when we’ll start seeing some real upgrades based on P/E?

    YAHOO currently shows a ttm EPS of 32.61!  Scandalous what’s going on here.
