Per Share, Apple Stock Now Worth More Than Google

Apple’s market cap has been worth more for a while, but now even a single share of AAPL stock is worth more than Google’s, having reached that milestone today at 12:26PM EDT, as noted by Fortune’s Philip Elmer-Dewitt. Boom.

    Gotta love it. The underdog stays ultra-popular, as it is well on its way to becoming the largest corporation in the world, while Microsoft has always been and continues to be hated, as it is becoming more and more of an afterthought in many a pie charts.

    It’s Apple and Google and the rest is in “Other”, a distant third of three and no, Windows 8 will not save Microsoft. The real reason that OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is already announced and ready to challenge Windows 8 is the fact that Apple wants to steal as much attention from its competitor, which, granted, is still No. 1 in the desktop OS category, but Apple is sending a clear message that despite the fact that its Mac business is but a fifth of its mostly iOS-based revenues, but no less important in their overall strategy.

    Yep…this is happening…and as many companies that used to thrive are either folding, getting run over, or slashed to pieces – by their own former CEO no less, right HP?. That said, customers all around the world do not seem to be bothered by this corporate giant, because they’re getting treated better than they ever have been and receiving quality products that have resulted in unprecedented customer satisfaction ratings, which is not a new thing for Apple, it’s just getting noticed by more people.

    Comparing share prices is meaningless unless the number of shares outstanding for both companies is exactly the same. Boom.

    Boom, bitch.

    … but Android OS is winning because it leads smartphone market share at 50% and Apple’s iOS is losing because it only has 75% of the mobile profits. Google is just pounding Apple to death and Droid Lovers are enjoying every moment of it. That little green trashcan mascot of Android must be very lucky for Google. If Ice Cream Sandwich ever reaches 5% on Android smartphones it will be curtains for the iPhone.

    No. It never gets old. In fact, it gets more satisfying for Apple shareholders to hear about, each passing day.

    OLD news. AAPL surpassed GOOG a long time ago. Stock price doesn’t matter. Market Cap and Percentage Change do.

    Yes Indeed
