Bloomberg did the math and came up with the $207.05 figure. That’s based on the company’s quarterly 10Q filing showing 4,829,926,000 shares.

Apple’s stock has been climbing since its 2018 third fiscal quarter earnings report on July 31st.The iPhone and Mac make reported revenue at $53.3 billion for the quarter, up 17% year over year with 41.3 million iPhones, 11.5 million iPads, and 3.7 million Macs sold. The company’s wearables revenue was up 60% year over year, too.

Hi Lee. It’s been a long time!! Yes, Keep climbing AAPL!! Good thing we didn’t sell all those years ago when our dear friend Bosco told us to sell at $250 a share (pre-split) as Apple would be faltering and never rising again!! Hee Hee.

Oh yeah, I am glad that I didn’t sell. Do you think we will soon see another stock split?
