Apple has hit another all-time high today. The company reached a $500 billion market cap during the after-hours trading yesterday and moved on past it as trading opened today.
This is the highest Apple stock has been. Ever. Stock had reached about $542 a share when we last checked. Apple has seen tremendous growth over the past few months. Just yesterday they were on the brink of hitting that $500 billion market capitalization milestone, and have since surpassed it.
Looks like the announcement of that upcoming iPad event really helped Apple, huh?
