iPhone 5, iPad mini and Apple HDTV to make Apple a trillion-dollar company, analyst says
Apple on Monday became the most valuable U.S. company in history — sort of.
The company’s market capitalization surpassed the previous record of about $619 billion achieved by Microsoft in December 1999, though that figure balloons to $842.5 billion when accounting for inflation. According to Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, Apple will soon become the most valuable company of all time with or without inflation as its market cap sails to $1 trillion and beyond.
In a note to investors on Tuesday, White called Apple the “trillion dollar baby.” According to the analyst, the upcoming launches of three major new products — the iPhone 5, the iPad mini and Apple’s rumored upcoming HDTV — alongside a potential China Mobile deal will propel Apple shares and drive the company’s market cap to $1 trillion.
Unity is the great goal toward which humanity moves irresistibly. But it becomes fatal, destructive of the intelligence, the dignity, the well-being of individuals and peoples whenever it is formed without regard to liberty, either by violent means or under the authority of any theological, metaphysical, political, or even economic idea. That patriotism which tends toward unity without regard to liberty is an evil patriotism, always disastrous to the popular and real interests of the country it claims to exalt and serve. Often, without wishing to be so, it is a friend of reaction – an enemy of the revolution, i.e., the emancipation of nations and men. -Mikhail Bakunin-
