Samsung trails Apple most since 1993

Samsung Electronics Co. has tumbled to the lowest level in two decades versus Apple Inc. amid speculation the iPhone maker will capture more of the market for high-end smartphones.

The CHART OF THE DAY shows the two stocks have diverged since June 3, sending the ratio of Samsung Electronics’ share price over Apple’s to the lowest since 1993. The Korean company has fallen 19 percent, dragging its price-to-book ratio below the benchmark Kospi index’s for the first time in the three years, while Apple surged 13 percent to a record.

Do you agree that Apple will capture more of the market for high-end smartphones?
