Apple’s stock closed at another record high of $456.48 today, the final day of trading for January. It’s also worth noting that AAPL is up over 50 points for the month of January, granting Apple a fantastic start to 2012.
A significant portion of the gain resulted from Apple’s announcement of all-time record fiscal numbers last week. On the whole, Apple’s stock value has increased by nearly 13% in a single month, and that should be impressive by anyone’s count.
The company has also significantly exceeded Exxon Mobil‘s market share, closing out the month by once again reclaiming the title of most valuable company in the world.
