    Default Apple Becomes Biggest Stock Ever. Bigger than IBM, HP, Google and Intel combined

    "Barely a year after supplanting Exxon Mobil as the largest stock in the current marketplace, Apple entered the record books Monday, becoming the most valuable stock to have ever traded.

    With Monday’s gain, Apple [AAPL 660.64 12.53 (+1.93%) ] eclipsed Microsoft’s [MSFT 30.755 -0.145 (-0.47%) ] peak market cap of $618.9 billion, a level that Microsoft hit over 12 1/2 years ago, on Dec. 30, 1999. That happened at the height of the dot-com boom and just three months before the Nasdaq Composite peaked at its all-time high of 5,132.52.


    Nothing seems to be slowing down Apple’s stock these days. Shares have been on the rise over the past three months in high anticipation of new iPhone and iPad models that have been predicted to hit stores during the second half of this year. Even a disappointing earnings report late last month did little to spook investors as they remained focused on the widely expected, but not yet formally announced, iPhone launch next month.

    Despite paying a dividend last week for the first time since 1995, Apple’s stock quietly closed at historic highs and saw its market cap close above $600 billion for the first time on Friday.

    In fact, Apple has seen its market cap double from $300 billion to $600 billion in a mere 19 months. Now at over $619 billion, Apple’s colossal market cap is roughly equivalent to the combined market caps of tech titans IBM [IBM 200.8998 -0.3202 (-0.16%) ], Google [GOOG 676.10 -1.04 (-0.15%) ], Intel [INTC 26.25 -0.08 (-0.3%) ], and Hewlett-Packard [HPQ 20.019 0.499 (+2.56%) ].

    As Apple’s stock continues to push higher, the gap between its market cap and that of the second largest company, Exxon Mobil [XOM 87.9266 -0.4734 (-0.54%) ], continues to widen.

    Apple’s stock is now more than 50 percent bigger than Exxon Mobil, with over $200 billion now separating the two companies’ market caps. That’s a large gap, considering only nine stocks in the S&P 500 have a market cap of $200 billion or more.

    The difference between Apple and Exxon Mobil’s market caps is bigger than the individual market caps of 98 percent of the S&P 500 companies."

    I prefer companies with high dividend yields and not with the kind of price volatility you see with companies like Apple. It's easy to lie about revenue, cash flow is much harder to cheat. So I'll choose the company that pays me 5%+ in dividends every year over the one that's paid one dvd over the past decade. If I want to gamble, I'll go to Vegas.

    exactly the kind of comment I'd expect from you.

    I think that the next year for Apple should be very interesting. First, the iPhone 5 will change to a new dock connector. Will people purchase the new phone even though it will render many of the accessories they have useless without an adapter?

    Next, the iPad Mini. What will it have? What won't it have? What will the price point be? Will it be the rumored $350-$399? Will it be the rumored $250-$299? Then the next question--does it cannibalize iPad 2/New iPad sales or does it supplement their sales? What does that do to iPod Touches?

    Then comes the big risk: iTV and Apple cable boxes. Looks like Apple iTV--actual HD television sets, not Apple TV boxes--are in full production. You'll purchase them through AT&T (U-verse) or Verizon (Fios) for around $1200-$1500 with a 2-year TV contract. On top of that, Apple will be making set-top boxes for the likes of Comcast.

    When Steve Jobs told Isaacson that he'd "cracked" TV, the speculation went crazy. Looks like we'll finally see the interface Jobs had come up with.

    Sounds sensible to me. For a Canadian.

    100% agree.

    RIM - once the mobile darlings of the world....now, pop
    GM - once a proud leader in automotive everything - and the worlds largest company...
    IBM -
    Palm
    Motorolla
    Netflix

    The companies are only as good as their next hit. Apple has a bunch of years left in them for success - reality is though the business world is cyclical for success. Someone told me that when a company starts paying dividends - that's when it's time to REALLY start paying attention to them as it usually means there isn't much in the pipeline - so there are the other avenues for headlines.

    This said - I adore my iPhone, iPod and I just added a macbook pro to the mix - so I don't want them to fail
    Winners come and go; legends are forever.
