It's Official - Apple Is Now Bigger Than The Entire US Retail Sector

Tyler Durden's picture

A company whose value is dependent on the continued success of two key products, now has a larger market capitalization (at $542 billion), than the entire US retail sector (as defined by the S&P 500). Little to add here.

Hey Nasdaq, take it out of the index.  It no longer belongs in any index.  It no longer belongs on any exchange.  It needs its own exchange.

...or country.

Long bond it and buy out troubled countries.  Put the population to work on a living wage of say $1 usd/day.

iWork or iDie.

/sarc or /unsarc - iForget which.

if Apple and Caterpillar took over the running of America and BMW and JCB the running of Europe the West would be a much, much, much nicer place

enough dreaming, back to the stinking crumbling Monopolists Matrix ..ho hum

firstdivision's picture the AUD$ is falling.  China sure must be too busy manufacturing to import base materials.

Watching the EURUSD fall also makes me believe a major investment fund blew up somewhere. The insiders know and are keeping it secret (while selling) until the sheeple find out they are hosed.

I think you´re being unfair. I´d say the success of Apple depends on four key products...Imac, MacBook, IPad and IPhone. 


But where are the people crying "bubble" on this one? When it comes to gold everybody is so eager to call the top.

firstdivision's picture

iMac and MacBook are barely a drop in the bucket of revenue.  Apple's current price depends on iPad and iPhone alone.
