Apple still the most valuable company

Apple loves its customers. It also loves making money. It wasn’t until recently that regular people started noticing how profitable the famous iOS producing company was. With every new statistic that came out, the company’s renown for profit grew. The same thing has happened again.

According to a study done by Milward Brown, Apple remains the company to beat when it comes to value. The Steve Job’s empire has had a 19% increase giving it an overall brand value worth of $183 billion dollars. Pretty impressive for a company that started out of a garage.

What’s more interesting is looking at some of the companies that got beaten. IBM, Google, and Microsoft are among a few on the list that lost out to the exclusive fruit named company. In fact, combined, MS and Google are only just worth more than Cupertino.

The following post sums it up nicely:

“The company (Apple) reached $500 billion in market value and remained Number 1 in the 2012 BrandZ™ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands, with a brand value of $183 billion.”

Steve Jobs might not be at the helm anymore, but it’s going to take a lot to slow down this innovative goliath. Let’s hope, for the sake of technology everywhere, that it never slows down.

Are you guys surprised by this? Or was it to be expected? Let us know down below

    Short, simple, and well written. Straight to the point and informative. Nice work. I’d fix that typo in the fourth sentence though. A little advice: always proofread your work. Have someone else read over it because often that person will catch something you might not. Better yet, perhaps he or she will be able to let you know when something doesn’t make sense. The fact of the matter is that you know what you want your work to say, so quite frequently you might not pick up on the little things that make a big difference. Something I’d recommend is printing out a copy of what you’ve composed, and double-spacing between lines can’t hurt. Making it easier to read helps to identify and recognize errors, if there are any. Be professional; it will only make the reader(s) appreciate your work more. An author should be a highly reputable source of information regarding whatever topic he or she is writing about. That being said, this means nothing unless it is presented properly.
