Apple's Stock Approaching $500 Mark After Becoming $2T Company

Just two days after becoming a $2 trillion company, Apple continues to experience impressive momentum on the stock market, with shares in the company rising around four percent in intraday trading as of writing.

Apple's stock price is quickly closing in on the $500 mark and has more than doubled since bottoming out at $224 in late March. Despite the global health crisis, the company set a June quarter revenue record of $59.7 billion, buoyed by strong Mac and iPad sales as more people work, learn, and connect with others from home.

Apple recently announced a four-for-one stock split that will take effect for shareholders of record as of August 24, with split-adjusted trading to begin on August 31. This move will not directly affect the company's valuation.

Apple is one of several companies that has seen its stock price surge since March, alongside the likes of Tesla, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google.

Looks like someone is regretting not buying AAPL when it was $100/share.

I started buying Apple stock in the 1980s after Jobs was fired and the stock tanked. I have a publishing company and all my graphic artists used (and still use) Macs, and they would quit before switching to anything else. With that sort of loyalty I figured the stock was worth a lot more than the couple of bucks it was trading for at the time. I've done very well with the stock, and every time my advisor suggests I take some money off the table I say NEVER! Just wish I had bought a lot more.

I regret not buying them in 2002 when they were trading around $12-$14/share. That was before the 7:1 and 2:1 splits, so that would be a split adjusted cost of ~$1/share today. :-(
So do I. Didn't get in until 2007 at a split-adjusted price of $17.1786/share. Looking forward to 8/31 when the next split will net me 30000 shares from that initial 2007 investment.
