AAPL Tops $318 for New Closing High

Apple’s shares hit a new closing high yet again on Monday. The Mac and iPhone maker’s stock landed at US$318.62 when the closing bell rang, and has been climbing in pre-market sales on Tuesday.

The company’s intra-day value has climbed as high as $320.18, although it hasn’t been able to stay quite that high yet at closing. Apple’s market cap is currently sitting at $292.3 billion.

The company’s current product lineup, which includes recently updated iMacs, the second generation MacBook Air, the iPhone 4 and fourth generation iPod touch, along with the iPad, is proving popular with customers and investors. Apple also recently offered a peak into what’s planned for Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), and analysts are expecting new iPad models soon.

Apple is trading in the pre-market at $321.15, up 2.53 (0.79%).
