Apple's stock reaches $700 a share

Recently, Apple’s stock price has risen at an unprecedented rate, despite a slight lull towards the middle of 2012. Moreover, Apple has had a great year overall, with record sales for the first quarter of their 2012 fiscal year, during which the company exceeded $46.33 billion in sales and $13.06 billion in profit.

Also, this year alone, Apple not only exceeded a total market worth of $500 billion, but hurdled over the $600 billion mark as well in April. Now, Apple is evaluated at over $650 billion, which is in excess of $225 billion (the equivalently of Google’s entire worth) more than the world’s second most valuable company, ExxonMobil.
