Apple Is Ridiculously Valuable
Hard to believe, but Steve Jobs resigned from Apple almost exactly a year ago and died just a little over a month later.
Happily for the company he founded, Apple has continued to prosper. Warnings that Apple would collapse without his leadership have been off the mark — at least so far. Apple reached another milestone this week when its valuation reached $621.64 billion making it the most-valuable company ever, at least measured in 2012 dollars. While there’s some dispute about whether Apple actually broke Microsoft’s 1999 record (factoring in for inflation, Apple still appears to have some way to go), this infographic, from Statista, shows just how dominant Apple is today.
