Apple Has More Money Than Luxembourg


Apple is WAY up the list, if it were a country.

More money than a lot of countries, really. If you look at a list of the Gross Domestic Product of countries around the world, you see that Apple’s first quarter revenue, reported today in an earnings call, places it quite high, if it were a country, of course.

Profit is greater than revenue.
Profit is better than revenue.

What’s so stunningly intense about the earnings call today is that Apple’s profit is just about as much as Google’s entire revenue. That means Apple takes the same amount of money to the bank that Google makes altogether. That’s pretty amazing.


We took a look at the latest reported annual revenues from each of Apple’s major rival tech companies and compared that to each company’s net worth. Facebook hasn’t reported yet for 2013, so that’s older data, and Samsung’s number is their revenue across every one of their divisions, so take the chart above with a grain of salt. What it really shows is that Apple could pretty much buy out one of its major rivals. Maybe even two or three. That’s winning.
