Apple Worth More Than Every Company EVAR!

Based on market capitalization, Apple is now bigger than every company ever, in the whole world (even some combined). So why is the company only 35th on the Fortune 500 list? Because the Fortune 500 list actually ranks your revenue and profits, not stock price.

Apple's stock soared to new heights on Thursday, pushing the company's market capitalization to $456 billion, a number that is greater than the values of rivals Google and Microsoft combined. As of Thursday morning, Microsoft's market cap was around $256.7 billion, while Google was valued at around $198.9 billion. With Apple's stock up more than 3 percent in morning trading, the company surpassed the combined totals of both Google and Microsoft.
