Via Business Insider: “Apple’s stock is hitting new highs during today’s trading. It’s currently at $494. That makes its market cap ($460 billion) greater than Google ($198 billion) and Microsoft ($257 billion) combined. The crazy thing is that Apple is just getting started. It could sell a ton of iPhones, iPads, and even TVs this year. Don’t be shocked if it’s a $1 trillion company some day.”
Also, Fortune has posted a few comparative metrics to AAPL’s valuation and finds that the company is now worth more than the gross domestic product of Sweden ($458 billion), all the gold in the Federal Reserve ($350 billion), and more than 2.5 Apollo space programs ($145-$170 billion apiece), among others.
