Apple - The Most Valuable Company in the World

from
,

Apple's stock has been on an unprecedented run in the past couple of years. Since August 2002, Apple's stock price increased by more than 8,000 percent.

Since early 2012, Apple is the most valuable company in the world, leaving Exxon Mobil, the long time number on, a distant second. Apple's market value is truly remarkable: with a valuation of more than $600b, Apple is now worth more than twice as much as America's largest media conglomerates combined.

Some are expecting Apple to become the first trillion dollar company in the world. If the new iPhone becomes a hit and the iPad continues to dominate the tablet market as it now does, it could be possible for Apple to reach that historical milestone.
