Once the most valuable company in the world, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) stock dipped below $400 this week to bottom out at its lowest levels since 2011. Yet as shares of Apple continue to free-fall, the stock’s valuation becomes increasingly more attractive. The stock is currently trading at just nine times earnings, well below the market average of 15 times earnings.

From a valuation standpoint, this means Apple stock is trading at its cheapest level in at least 10 years, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Why you want to own it
The stock looks even better when you consider Apple’s balance sheet, which boasts zero debt and more than $137 billion in cash and investments. And we can’t forget the stock’s 2.6% dividend yield. Better still, the company’s massive cash reserves mean there’s plenty of room for dividend increases or stock buybacks in Apple’s future.
