It's good to be apple right now. Really good. Just last week Tim Cook (CEO) announced that the company is now worth over $700 Billion. Apple shares showed that too. Going from $112 to $124 a share.
Apple Inc. reported that the company sold 51 million iPhones in the Q1 of 2014 (an all-time quarterly record), compared to 47.8 million in the year-ago quarter. Apple also sold 26 million iPads during the quarter, also an all-time quarterly record, compared to 22.9 million in the year-ago quarter.
—which all contributes to their staggering $178 billion current in cash on hand. (That's more than double Bill Gates's net worth, and he's the richest man in the world.) Under the leadership of Tim Cook the company maintains 437 retail stores in fifteen countries. All of which, are power by the most valuable company in the world, Apple Computer.
