  1. Three months ago (mid-March), AAPL was around 20% away from MSFT. We were all confident, Apple would reach and surpass MSFT by the end of the year.

    AAPL is now less than 20% away from XOM (Exxon-Mobil). Should we be as confident as we were three months ago that AAPL will surpass XOM and become the largest company in US by market cap before the year is out…?

  2. Never get tired of this!

    I watch the stock all day long on the iphone at work (“stocks”- Apple’s app).
    There, you can select randomly price, percentage, or market cap
    views. I ALWAYS enjoyed watching Apple catch up to, then surpass, first Walmart. Then MS. Now $18b BIGGER than MS.

    What just caught me by surprise- NOT THAT FAR OFF FROM #1!

    holy shit

  3. > Apple’s previous closing high was $271.87 set yesterday.

    I believe the previous closing high was something like $72.50, set a few months ago, not yesterday’s closing number.

    We’re just one oil spill away by Exxon/Mobil for Apple to pass them.
