Apple PWNS Microsoft in Total Market Value for the First Time

THAT JUST HAPPENED.

No really, it did. In trading today, Apple eclipsed Microsoft’s total market capitalization value for the first time ever. Apple stock was trading earlier today for $247.62, giving Apple a total value of $225.57 billion. Its rival, Microsoft, was trading at $25.38 with a total market cap of $223.83 billion. This marks the first time that Apple’s market capitalization value has trumped Microsoft’s.

I’m sure MS are ok with that, given their own investment in Apple.

@Chris

Microsoft sold their share in Apple a while ago, which is a shame, as today it would be valued at around 7.4 billion USD.
