Deluard attributes tech’s loss of luster to the incorporation of technology into long-standing, “old economy” businesses. That means a company like Walmart, which has adapted admirably to the e-commerce era, and now generates roughly the same level of sales online as Apple.

He also questions why Netflix is trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio that’s nearly six times that of Disney, since both companies “use technology to tell stories.” The same skepticism expands to the auto industry, where Deluard shakes his head at Tesla’s outsized valuation when compared to other luxury automakers like BMW.
