Apple shares hit new all-time intraday and closing highs – September 19, 2012


    1. But it is now “valued” at an astonishing (over) $600 BILLION.

      To put $600,000,000,000 into perspective, the TOTAL market value of ALL companies (about 2600) traded on the NASDAQ exchange (along with Apple) is about $6 trillion. Apple BY ITSELF is now worth 10% of the total NASDAQ market.

      To use another (less fortunate) comparison, it would take 30 “Apples” to pay off the current U.S. national debt.

  1. As i watched shares trade today and Apple went from it’s highest point to closing price I think I lost 10 billion in value! That’s a round number! I’ll check!

    1. I watched AAPL on google today when it reached 100.00 exactly for the first time then fell back a bit, then did that over and over a few times before rising above 100.00. Looked like that auto-trade thing to me, but who knows?

  2. According to forbes, this is still around 9% lower in terms of market cap due to the (split adjusted) lower number of outstanding shares. More good news for the Apple bulls!

      1. Back in ’98, I had to tell my then broker to buy AAPL or I’d switch to another firm to get him to place the order. Three splits later that lot is now 28 shares for each one I bought. I smile a lot these days…

    1. It was (and is) only a matter of time…AAPL has a lot of catching up to do after two years of a smear campaign and a fall from well deserved grace.

      It’s obvious now that there’s no one else capable of leading and innovating worth a dime. apple’s heading to the moon and the believers will live their retirements in style.

  3. Wow! Like you said… Finally!
    We have been waiting a while for that headline to pop back up. Me think’est we will see it a few more times in the very near future.
