Link: Putting Apple’s Stock Price & Market Cap in Perspective ☍

Shared on September 18, 2012

MG Siegler talks about Apple’s stock being over $700/share and a market cap of $655 billion ($400 billion ahead of Microsoft):

It was only May 26, 2010 that Microsoft was still ahead in that regard. Since then, Microsoft has gained around $35 billion in value. Apple has gained $430 billion.

May 26, 2010—that was just over a month after the original iPad started shipping, a couple of weeks before the iPhone 4 (only on AT&T) was introduced, the Apple TV was still a hot-running awkward device running OS X, and no Mac App Store. Simpler times indeed.
