  1. For reasons I don’t understand, they again got Exxon’s market cap wrong. It closed at $420 billion. Why does MDN do this time after time? What purpose does it serve. They have to know they get it wrong. Apple is surely doing well enough for them to not trivialize the difference between them and Exxon. After all, everyone else knows the correct number.

    1. Not very difficult to understand.

      If you simply click the XOM link supplied by MDN, it goes to Yahoo Finance which currently reports Exxon’s market cap is $414.18B.

    2. According to Yahoo, Exxon’s market cap is slightly over $414B, and Its “Enterprise Value” is ~$420B.

      Enterprise Value is (again according to Yahoo) Market Cap + Total Debt – Total Cash & Short Term Investments.

      However, some sources claim XOM has 4.86 Billion shares outstanding. 4.86 x 86.45 (yesterday’s close) = ~420. But the number of shares is not always constant and that number may be outdated.

      IN the end, of course, it doesn’t really matter. This is not sports. Apple doesn’t “win the championship” if it passes Exxon. Exxon doesn’t care one whit what Apple’s market cap is.

    1. Thanks for the information. To me it hardly seems fair to blame MDN for using numbers that someone else provides. You might have a good reason for going with the numbers that a particular site uses over another. It would be useful to suggest using numbers from a different source, and your reasons behind them. I just looked up the numbers from six different sites, and there was quite a variety. One thing that was reasonably consistent was that whenever XOM’s numbers were higher, so were AAPL’s.

      Here is what I saw (As of 4:00 pm MST):
      Google: AAPL – $398.82B; XOM – $414.37B
      CNNMoney: AAPL – $400.0B; XOM – $420.3B
      Yahoo: AAPL – $398.82B; XOM – $414.37B
      MarketWatch: AAPL – $391.32B; XOM – $406.85B
      TheStockMarketWatch: AAPL – $399.99B; XOM – $414.37B
      Scottrade: AAPL – $400.0B; XOM – $414.4B

      (Yes, the quote I got from Scottrade for XOM was lower than $420B: http://research.scottrade.com/qnr/public/Stocks/Snapshot?symbol=xom )

  2. Oh BOY!!! INTEL beat earning by 8 cents – given the NPD numbers showing PC decline and Apple growth in computers – Apple is going to FREAKING KILL the Mac estimates tuesday. Were it not for Apple, Intel would have missed.
