Apple Becomes Most Valuable Company in the World, Leaves Exxon in the Dust

Posted in Apple, Apple News on 25/01/2012 by J. Glenn Künzler


Following their impressive and record-breaking holiday quarter results posted yesterday evening, Apple opened this morning at an all-time high, blowing past Exxon Mobil to become the most valuable company in the world!

Exxon and Apple have been fighting it out for the spot on-and-off for some time now, but Apple’s phenomenal holiday quarter was enough to put them firmly over the edge. Congrats, Apple! Enjoy your title – this time around, you’ll probably hang on to it for a while!
