Apple drops to 2nd most valuable company

It might not come to a shock for some people, but Apple has lost its title to Exxon for being the most valuable company in the world, through the decline of their shares.

For almost a year, Apple held the title by reaching the $470 billion market cap – until recently when it all the way down to a near $400B. To be specific, Apple currently has a total worth of $413.06 billion with $439.88 per share – while Exxon fared at a close $418.23 billion.

apple declines

The fruit company has peaked with the launch of the iPhone 5, yet ironically it’s declining. We can’t help but wonder if this will continue or not, as Apple isn’t really impressing anyone with their present moves such as the iPad Mini, the 4th-Gen iPad and the iPhone 5. While still being great devices, all of them seem to be keeping up with the trends and release cycles of current leaders in the market.

Is it because of the loss of Steve Jobs? Or their stale product line? It feels like they won’t be introducing not much new stuff to the world for quite some time, although there is the rumored Apple TV – but again, that is just a rumor.

    • Lyle says:

      Wtf dude? you posted a link that backs up the yuga article. Binasa mo ba ung link na pinost mo? haha.:)) kung ano sinabi sa yugatech yan din ang sinabi dito sa link mo. Read before you critic sir.

      “Back in August 2011, Apple first passed Exxon Mobil as the most valuable publicly traded company in the world. Both companies have risen in value since, but Apple’s recent slide has allowed Exxon Mobil to again regain its position at the top of the corporate world.” malinaw naman ah.

    • Shattered says:

      Quake, wag mong kakalimutan yun first statement mo o baka di ka lang talagang marunong magbasa. Nabasa ko din to sa engadget, gizmodo, verge, techcrunch at lahat sila may source! para kang bata, eh ano kung nauna ang macrumors?! kanya kanyang trip yan ng media consumption. i bet yung nasa-twitter nauna din. ikaw na ang magaling, ikaw na ang nauna.

      Nagmamagaling kasi itong quake na ito eh.

      “di sila nag drop to second place..na retain nila ung pangalawang posistion,” – quake

      “Back in August 2011, Apple first passed Exxon Mobil as the most valuable publicly traded company in the world.” – quake’s source

      Ayan na… litaw na litaw na ang ka-tangahan ni quake! BOBO MO, quake!!! UNGAS!!

    • Ryuuji says:

      Nakakahiya naman, quake. I’m sure gusto mo nang maglaslas sa sobrang hiya. Gosh, ganyan na pala katindi ang decline ng English proficiency ng ibang mga Pinoy. Of course, di ako kasama dyan. :)

    seriously? fruit company? DOLE? Del Monte? Lol!

    • jeykoy says:

      bakit? food products ba pinag-uusapan dito?? malamang ang Apple.. bobo

    • pons says:

      This is the problem of idi*t people that reads articles literally

    • boy bitok says:

      @pons: *This is the problem of id**ts who read articles literally – that’s how you write a sentence, my friend.

      So with that kind of argument, figuratively speaking, Apple is a “fruit” company? What figure of speech is that? Please enlighten me :) If not, then kneel down and apologize! :D

    • Monger says:

      boy bitok, apparently, apple being referred to as “the fruit company” did not start here on yugatech. most tech blogs e.g. engadget, gizmodo, phonearena use the term (check the link below).

      those who don’t know that what’s being referred to as “the fruit company” in this article, provided that the word apple is on the title is the idiot. who the fuch needs enlightenment for that other than idiotic fools! it goes without saying

    • boy bitok says:

      @Monger so what figure of speech is that bro? You’re point is valid, but you just didn’t answer my question. Now i would say that you were foolish enough to answer that question without reading it through. But i wouldn’t say or even hint to the fact that you’re an “id**t” based on that. Now, if you can answer the question then that would be swell, you’ve by then made a point and I’ve been made the fool. If not, then the both of you should just apologize :D

    • Monger says:

      I can’t recall raising this matter as a figure of speech. Silly question if I may add.

      @Monger you are either did not see my previous post or you just ddd not see my previous post. I’ll rephrase the question, why call Apple a “fruit company” when it obviously does not sell fruits? And just because other tech blogs are saying that it is a fruit company does that mean that they are right? I just dont see the point of calling Apple a “fruit company.” Even if others are using the term doesn’t mean that it’s right, right?

    • Monger says:

      wow! thanks for rephrasing that for me! it helped a lot. here is your answer: get a life!
      by the way, for practicality’s sake, stop thinking for a moment. Why call a phone “galaxy” when it is not a globular cluster?! why not just call it a Samsung Phone?!
      Why Apple call their staff “Genius” when they don’t have the IQ of 145 and above?! Why not just call them Apple staff, because that is what they really are?

      In fact, why did Steve Jobs named the company Apple when they don’t sell Apple?! Why not just call it Computer?!

      If you are in a tech site and you read the word Apple, there is a high probability that they are not talking about the fruit.

    • Monger says:

      In the real world, you are just a troll who likes to discredit the blogger of a perfectly fine article/post by raising an irrelevant question. Also, google metaphor for your own sake.
