PCs are back, which leaves Macs as the yuppie equivalent of BMWs. Paying twice the price for a computer can only be so cool. The revolutionary iPhone is getting stale. No fresh market, no fresh phone.

Exxon is 331 Billion while Apple is 287 Billion. During the last 5 years Apple has grown over 400% while Exxon only 11%. So the scenario of Apple surpassing is not impossible. However it's hard to predict things, especially the future.
So, it's high time to sell your Apple shares and invest in Microsoft, or some similar company of high reputation. The time to act is now Be warned

...Remember that market capitalisation isn't about profit; it's about the share price multiplied by the number of outstanding shares (which is how one reaches a valuation for Facebook, or any small company when venture capitalists buy a chunk; or for any publicly-listed company). It can be described as the market's guess at the net present value of the total future profits of the company....
How will we know when it's happened? Well, Apple has 913.6m shares outstanding (issued); Exxon, 5.092bn. A quick bit of maths shows that when Apple's share price reaches or exceeds 5.573 times that of Exxon, its valuation is also greater.
At present, it's sitting just below the 5.0 mark - so the differential needs to grow by another 10%, though WolframAlpha suggests that that could happen by January, based on current trends.....
