Apple Surpasses Exxon Mobil As the World’s Most Valuable Company

With the world’s financial markets facing yet another bout of turmoil, it appears Apple hasn’t been affected as much as others. Just this morning Apple’s stock valuation surpassed that of world leader Exxon Mobil, making Apple the world’s most valuable company for a brief moment, as noted by MacRumors.

EDIT: at the time of publishing, Apple has taken the crown yet again. Expect more fluctuations to come.

Apple’s stock valuation just reached $340.04 billion, slightly passing Exxon Mobil’s $338.40 billion. This is impressive given just over a decade ago, Apple was on the verge of collapse.

Anyone pick up some ‘deals’ today in the market?

Investors should remember that excitement and expenses are their enemies. And if they insist on trying to time their participation in equities, they should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.
