AAPL Closes At Over $600 Following Apple’s Stellar iPad Launch Weekend

The numbers basically say everything. AAPL closed at over $600 per share for the first time in Apple’s history today, and it’s only fitting considering what was just announced. The new iPad sold a jaw-dropping 3 million units since its launch 4 days ago, making it the most successful iPad launch ever by a long shot. Not only that, but Apple announced shareholder dividends this morning — a decision that obviously pleased Wall Street.

When does it stop? That’s the question one has to ask when faced with the overwhelming success Apple is continuing to see with every new product. The Cupertino company’s earnings have been growing exponentially with ever business quarter, and Apple is already the most valuable company on earth. Absolute craziness.

    I remember all to well when the stock was at $64 a share.  I say to the wife “let’s put 5 grand down on Apple stock” Wife says “what if they go out of business, let’s just keep it in our savings account” Good move wife, good move.
