A $1 Trillion market cap would just mean there has been some serious inflation due to money printing. I can't imagine how much an ounce of gold would be worth if Apple hits that mark.
It's not that Apple isn't successful and growing, it's that inflation exaggerates the monetary value of that growth.

Sure do wish I'd jumped on in the summer of 2006 when I had the chance. My wife still doesn't like to talk about that; we were playing with house money, and we probably would have cashed it all out by now anyway. $1000/share, though, is a whole lot of green.

I bought a Centris 650 in 1993, I think, and my dad razzed me for using Apple.

He said Apple was dead.

Oops.

This is a truly historic time in business. Think of when Ford started selling cars. People said they were toys. They weren't practical. Then they went on to be sold all over the world. This is kind of where we are with tablets and smart phones. In the next five years vast numbers of these will be sold around the world and Apple has a good chance to make unbelievable a,punts of profit filling this need.
this is very true, and a valid point. I hope you are right, so I can hold my stocks a lot longer.
I just have one observation, Apple has small shares in the computer market... Mobile market is a whole different story, with iPod, iPad, and iPhone all having very significant market shares, and with very worthy competitors (unlike the computer market where competitors are pretty behind)

Don't you mean devaluation of a dollar vs. actual inflation? Not that I'm an expert, but is inflation tied to prices or to currency, or both?

If the market cap of all companies rose along with AAPL, then you might have a point, but if AAPL continues to outpace the rest of the market, then the achievement belongs to AAPL.

The real definition of inflation is the expansion of the money supply. The has happen 3 fold in the past 3 to 4 years. So an expansion of the money supply is the same as the devaluation of the currency. Rising prices are a result of inflation. The rise of consumer prices does not happen in a linear fashion. It is somewhat like being in a facility with old plumbing, where you turn the hot water in the shower up and nothing happens, so you turn it up a little more and nothing happens, eventually you get a sudden burst that is too hot for your skin.

Last point. The 70's are referred to as the "The Great Inflation", In the late 80's they changed the way that they calculate the CPI. If they used the same method that they did in the 70's today, inflation would be at 9.5% or if they used today's method in the 70'S there would never have been any inflation. So which is it, do we have inflation now or did it not really exist in the 70's?

The end game of all of the monetary stimulus will be the collapse of the bond market, which will cause interest rates to rise. Once this happens corporate paper will yields will rise as well. Companies will have to service their debt at a larger amount which will take away from their earnings which will result in analysts downgrades and lower stock prices.

Look for the Dow Jones Average and an Ounce of Gold to meet somewhere around 5000. The 2 number have done this twice before and sometime during this decade it will happen again.

Since the number of shares of Apple and Google is not the same: this doesn't mean a thing.

It's as useful as saying at a certain date the temperature in Anchorage (measured in Fahrenheit) is the same as the temperature in Havana (measured in Celsius): completely meaningless.

God it's a shame cvaldes doesn't post on here anymore. Every time MR posted a story on the rise of aapl stock he'd be there, reminding us of his stock ownership. Wonder what this recent downturn has done to his precious "portfolio".

Doesn't look like Apple will be hitting that 1 trillion dollar mark, haha.

Aim high though Apple, and one day you'll rule the world with everything being proprietary.
