Apple Makes it to Top of the Market Cap List

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 03:23 PM

"With trading now closed in the U.S., Apple has ended the day with a lead on Exxon Mobil, becoming the most valuable publicly traded company by market capitalization."

Yesterday, Apple flirted with the top spot but didn't quite make it. Today, they bounced back (even during a slump in the markets) to hit $337.17 billion, which is almost $7 billion more than Exxon, which closed the day at $330.77 billion. Overall thought, the stock was down 2.76% at $363.39 USD per share.

"Apple remains the world's most valuable company (after Exxon) with a market cap that this morning exceeded $300 billion, reports declare. On active trade on the Dow Apple (AAPL) rose $7 to hit a new record intraday high this morning - right now Apple stock sits near $330 per share for a market cap of over $302 billion."

Well, almost a third of the way towards the recent prediction that Apple would hit $1 trillion. I guess we will see on January 18th how the first fiscal quarter ended up for them.

$1 Trillion Dollar Market Cap for Apple?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Talk" @ 04:33 PM

"Apple (AAPL) is the dream company we always wished for when we were children. The messiah of companies that we never thought would come to Earth in our lifetimes."

Well, I love Apple products too, but I think those two statements are a little over the top to say the least. However, I do think he is on to something with the market cap idea. You can see how Apple products seem to be everywhere, in one form or another. Interesting read about his exposure to Apple over the years and how he comes to his conclusion on a 1 trillion dollar market cap for Apple. I wonder though, what was he doing with a Windows laptop?

"Shares of Apple Inc. (AAPL) closed today at $269.00, putting the company's market value at $244.77 billion."

As you can see above, the stock rose above $270.00 USD in after hours trading, at least as of 8pm Eastern. According to MacDailyNews, this puts the market cap of Apple ($244.77 billion) greater than the combined Microsoft and Dell market cap ($242.42 billion). Let's see what today brings.

Apple Market Cap Edges Microsoft

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 05:00 AM

"In terms of market capitalization, Apple has now passed Microsoft, making it the most valuable technology company worldwide. According to the New York Times, "As of Wednesday, Wall Street valued Apple at $222.12 billion and Microsoft at $219.18 billion." Exxon Mobil, at $278.64 billion, is the only American company valued higher than these two."

This was first reported Wednesday, but appears to still be true even with fluctuations in the market as the figures above are from Thursday, at around 4pm Easter time. Still holding the lead. What does this mean other than bragging rights? It certainly doesn't help market share, nor does it give you a sense of how strong or weak a company is, however it is a good sense of a trend a market is heading. At least that is what I've been told, because I'm certainly no expert in these matters. What are the thoughts from some of you that have the expertise in this area?

Will Apple Surpass Microsoft?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 10:30 AM

"A few years ago, Steve Jobs allegedly sent a company wide email to his employees to brag about the fact that Apple had just surpassed Dell in terms of marketcap, meaning that - according to the stock market, at least - Apple had become a larger computer than its computer selling rival."

That was, of course, in response to comments made by Michael Dell of Dell Computer when he suggested years previous that Apple should shut down because of the low stock price and give the money back to it's shareholders. Times change but apparently Steve Jobs has a long memory. As it stands now, Apple Stock has to hit about the $290.00 USD price, along with the Microsoft share price holding steady, in order to surpass Microsoft's market cap of $262.21 billion versus Apple's $234.97 billion. With Apple dropping almost $8.00 USD as of the posting of this story, that may not happen anytime soon.
