  1. MDN’s calculation of Apple market cap is incorrect. Here is today’s end of trading Apple market cap, copied and pasted from $920.9B. This figure is confirmed by other authoritative websites.

    1. First, CNBC is hardly “authoritative”. Second, it comes down to how many shares you think Apple has. Most base this figure on the last reported number, 5,068,493 shares, so $950B is what is typically calculated. However, the reality is Apple has been continuing to buy shares since quarter end, so the true number of shares is less. The problem is we don’t know how much less, but CNBC is using about 4.9B shares in their calculation. Doesn’t seem to be the right way to do it.

    1. Happened to me more than a dozen times the last two days. What is most annoying is you cannot decline the offer or turn it off FOREVER. It totally hijacks the MDN page in Safari and you have to close the page at least five times before it quits. Then later, it comes back all over again! …

  2. 5,068,493 shares on Apple’s latest 10-Q for 3 months ending 31 March x $187.36 = $949,632,848
    If Apple has bought back more shares since then, the number of outstanding shares would be less and so would the market cap.
