A tantalising $47bn behind Exxon. Apple is trading at around $293 per share on the NASDAQ giving it a market cap of $267bn. Its performance helped it overtake PetroChina, which is valued at a $265.5bn, and close in on Exxon at $314.4bn.
According to Fortune 500 Apple is at #197. Microsoft is at #105. Exxon is at #3 and China National Petroleum at #10. http://money.cnn.com/magazi...
that's revenue you are talking about.. we are talking about market capitalisation i.e how much the company is valued at ..
Nintendo is bigger than Sony
darkcharrizard, why bring this up?
@DelbertGrady Hey were is Sony at? ^.^
at number 69...
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOO!!!!! http://www.nooooooooooooooo... Joking! Joking! :D They deserve it they've put much efforts and taken a lot of risks with Blu Ray and Ps3
Well they do have some of the biggest film and music studios with artists like Elvis, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen. Not to mention the electronics division with TV's, Blu Ray, DSLR's and HD camcorders used by the film, music and sport industry. Then you have the Mobile Phones (Sony ericksson) and Playstation. Sony are HUGE!
This is old news Apple got passed Microsoft for a few months and then Microsoft took back its third place now apple is like 10th place again here: http://www.forbes.com/lists... This site doesn't even have a source
apple is the biggest techmaker in the world now. but the same site said Microsoft still make more profit? must those darn Ms points!! LOOL
apple could thank the ipod for their success if it wasnt for their little mp3 they would have ran out of business
Nice to see that Apple overcharges their products and doesn't pay dividends for investors so one could see why they have that much capital
Yeah if that's the case then most definitely.
Actually, apple doesn't overcharge it's products. It's just that all programs and such stuff are already included. If you buy a windows computer, you have to buy office etc. separately.
last I checked my mac only came with a 30 day trial of iwork suite, no other office suite preinstalled.
Nice try, but Macs are the same way. FinalCut Pro = $99. Windows Movie Maker = Free. PS: I got Microsoft Office for free, mostly every college student gets it free or discounted.
Is a sad day.
I hate Apple and Apple products
I sell Propane and Propane accessories Wanna be buddies?
Remember what Apple says Be A Leader Not A Follower! Yet Seven reached 15% market share in less than a year while it took MacOSX decades to grow to 5%
Seven reached that because people were in a hurry to get rid of Vista.
wow the second largest company... known for selling its products to the biggest douches around.
apple have the best hardware designs ever lol.
you're holding it wrong
why even waste money on their products when a new version comes out every single fucking year ... the only good thing about apple products is that they are no match against blendtec blenders XD
I agree. But a new version of a lot of technology comes out every year. And it will get faster as the singularity approaches. http://www.singularitytrack... Sent from my iphone 4!
Wow, so much for PCs anymore. Macs have been taking over it seems these days. All these movie producers and recording artists seem to use nothing but Macs too.
Quote: Meanwhile, it's leaving behind other tech rivals like Microsoft, IBM and Intel with their pathetic market caps of $214.4bn Uh.... can you get that much in over 20 years?
And the only reason why Apple get so much is cause they sell things like iPads for about £400, around the Xbox 360 and PS3 price combined! And people get sucked in!
