The stock market gets its roundness from the bloated tradable shares of big companies and it seems that this roundness received an apple-shape.
Best Computer Science Degrees showed to curious people “How Big is Apple?” in a lovely-pictured infographic, by involving the Cupertino Company in uncommon comparisons. Overall, Apple proved to be the biggest company on the stock market, with a tradable shares value of $508B, beating other large companies as Exxon, Microsoft and IBM.
For example, Apple’s total sales in 2011 were $128 billion exceeding the gross domestic product of nations as Slovakia, Iraq, Ecuador and New Zealand. Also, if Apple manages to sell 56.4 million iPads in 2012 as anticipated, than the length of those iPads laid end-to-end would reach almost two times the distance Cupertino, California – New York. U.S. folks prefer an iOS device rather than a car, or maybe they are more likely to afford one instead of a car. Anyway, take a glance at the infographic and see interesting facts compared.
