Everyone knows Apple is incredibly profitable, but did you know that the top-earning tech company brings in more money than Hewlett-Packard, Google, Intel and Cisco combined?

That’s according to the San Jose Mercury News’ newly published Silicon Valley 150 list, which ranks 75 tech companies using data from Bloomberg and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

The list shows that, at $174 billion per year, Apple brings in more revenue than second-place HP and third-place Google combined, while raking in more profits ($37 billion) than the rest of the top five taken together.

According to a recent infographic, Apple earns an incredible $325,000 each minute.

The full SV150 list can be seen below:

    They could bring in a lot more if they would get their heads out of their asses and start providing cell service on their iPads.

      Really seems like you need to get your head out of your own ass.

      • Ian Weir

        Yours is probably stuck up Tim Cooks ass.

      • PMB01

        Nope. It’s right here next to my cellular iPad.

      • Nick Evanovich

        A iPad with cell service makes as much sense as a desktop computer with cell service…

        That’s the most idiotic comment I’ve seen in awhile. Thanks for a good laugh!

    So you’re saying they could actually afford to give us customers are larger screen with more storage (32GB should be base and 128GB should be an option) and more RAM on our iPhones? Aaaaaand they could afford to offer this at the same price point of the current models since competitors already offer larger screens and more RAM for cheaper? Gaaaasp

    • PMB01

      And then our iPhones would have about 2 hours of battery life. Good thing you know better than Apple does! LOL!

    Goes to show how much Apple’s customers are overpaying for their iStuff

    • PMB01

      Troll harder.

      • BZ

  • Nought E-Bugger

    So why isn’t Mircrosoft on the list?
