Now, granted, Google and Apple, although seeming arch rivals, earn their money in completely different ways. Nevertheless, the basic story in the press is that Google/Android is trouncing Apple. Well, they sure better be to ever justify those numbers. You're basically paying four times as much for a dollar of earnings from Google as you are for Apple. Good luck with that.

Maybe the most intelligent "hedge" trade is to buy Apple and short Google?
