    Nobody "owns" apple per se, because its a publicly traded company. People buy small portions called stocks and... well, you know the rest, i think.

    I dont know who the biggest stockholder is... but unless they are apple employees I dont think they have any power in future releases.

    That's about all I know.

    So the question is: Who owns a majority of the shares?

    I think Apple have bought back alot of shares recently, the senior exs at apple seem to own alot of stock and shares.

    APPL

    is this thread the result of some clever trolling? a google search turned up some rumours and jokes . . .

    if you really want to know, wouldn't the SEC be a better place to look?

    that would be a huge mistake ala hp-compaq

    we don't want a bad senior exec(s) who is entrenched with that type of leverage...sj only has one share himself

    Did SJ not get stock options last time he got his $1?

    I know they gave him a jet, but I can't remember what else they gave him.

    they offered him the options which he turned down so he could still be known as the one dollar a year guy with one share

    its good for the morale of apple inc

    as for the jet, sj is worth almost a billion so i think he should leave the jet, worth millions, to the next ceo

    Fidelity Investments!

    The largest shareholder in Apple is FMR Corp, known to the public as Fidelity Investments. If the company with the most research analysts in the world owns 5.1% of Apple, that is a confidence builder.

    Institutional investors

    PS - every one of the largest investors is what is called an institutional investor - in this case, mutual fund companies and banks that sell mutual funds.

    How much control do they have over day to day stuff? NONE. They don't want that type of control. So what do they want? Purely, they want profits, so the share price will rise!

    These companies all manage money for people like you and me, particularly in retirement plans liek 401(k)s, pension, etc. They own Apple because they believe that future profit growth will outpace that of the other companies they could have chosen to own.

    Who owns Apple?

    Here's a list of the largest holders of Apple stock. Although you can't see it, Steve Jobs actually owns the *least* amount of Apple stock among the company's senior executives. Tim Cook, Fred Andersen, Mickey Drexler, Jerome York, and even Bill Campbell and Apple's Hardware chief (his name slipped my mind) owns more.

    It's from Bloomberg

    Ensign Paris - Not sure if you were referring to my previous post, but in case anyone else is curious, I got the .gif file from my Bloomberg at work. Its connected to the Bloomberg network through a fairly decent PC and two gorgeous flat screen panels. The setup costs several thousand dollars per month to use, but it contains EVERYTHING you need to know about stocks, bonds, commodities, etc. on a real-time basis.

    Apple's $4 billion stash

    Apparently, Apple doesn't *really* have $4 billion in cash. In its latest financial statement, Apple reported about $2 billion in actual cash, with the other $2.2 billion in marketable securities. Marketable securities are as good as cash, and Apple is in no way pulling an Enron, but it's funny that I didn't even check out their story before swallowing it whole.

    FYI, here's a list of the largest holders of Dell's stock. And no, the largest holder isn't a typo:
