AAPL Closes at Over $600 on Monday – Sets New 52-Week High

AppleInsider reports that when the markets closed at 4:00 Eastern, Apple was at $600.96. The company crossed the $600 threshold just minutes before the NASDAQ halted official trading for the day.

Apple shares closed up more than $8 for the day. The Cupertino company’s market capitalization now sets at $517.65 billion.

RBC Capital Markets gave Apple a strong endorsement earlier in the day, issuing its second price target increase in as many weeks. Analyst Amit Daryanani now sees Apple shares reaching at least $645 in the next year, while his “upside scenario” predicts a price of $725 per share.

Apple’s all-time high point came in September 2012, as shares briefly crossed the $700 price point. Soon after, the share price began to fall, tumbling throughout later 2013 and 2013.
