Apple’s stock has set another new record today, having gained 1.05% ($4.86) to close at $468.83 – yet another all-time high for the company. Apple also remains the world’s most valuable company with a nearly $30 billion lead over their nearest competitor, Exxon Mobil.
Apple’s market value is currently listed as $437.12 billion, while it’s closest competitors lag significantly behind:
- Apple (AAPL) – $437.12B
- Exxon Mobil (XOM) – $408.73B
- Microsoft (MSFT) – $254.66B
- IBM (IBM) – $224.29B
- Wal-Mart (WMT) – $211.27B
Apple’s previous all-time high was set yesterday. The company has reached over half a dozen all time records so far this year, and with the iPad 3 expected to be announced later this month or in March, those figures aren’t going anywhere but up.
