Apple’s stock has been well on the rise through 2012. Today, it rose another 1 percent, briefly putting it at a $600 billion market cap. Just last month it hit $500 billion.
Those monitoring Apple stock have seen it rise nearly 60 percent this year alone, and it’s believed that the Cupertino company will surpass $1 trillion in market capitalization within the next couple of years.
Microsoft is noted to have reached $604 billion market cap in December of ’99, but according to MacRumors, adjusted for inflation, that would be more than $800 billion today.
Either way, that’s a crapload of money.
