    Default Apple Hits Oil Slick as World's Former Top Company


    Apple is no longer the world's most profitable company. Instead, Exxon Mobil - the company bumped to second place in global profitability by Apple more than a year ago - has reclaimed its crown.

    With shares of AAPL now trading at $440, Apple's market cap took a dive this week after a less-than-rousing earnings report from the most recent quarter.

    As a result, Exxon Mobil is once again the most valuable company by way of its market cap. Forrester analyst Charles Golvin doesn't seem surprised given the widespread lower expectations Apple is generating today.

    "It's a reality check on inflated expectations," Golvin says of Apple's diminished market cap. "I don't think it's a portent or a harbinger of diminished impact of Apple on the market." Golvin suggests that Apple may no longer be as far ahead of the competition as it once was.

    "While they are still an 800 pound gorilla and bringing tremendous innovation and new experiences to consumers," he concludes, "others are starting to catch up to them a little bit and having some influence where they didn't before."

    Yup! I feel like iOS7 is going to have to seriously wow for that to happen. Their hardware is great. Now take their software to the next level and they're good.

    Lol. I can see that being the slogan. "iPhone 5s sorta like the iPhone 5 just a wider screen" in all serious ness they are starting to slip. Yea they have the quality apps and fluidness down. People want customization now a days. Or that's what it seems like by looking at google/android sales. Hopefully they pick it up I still love my 4s.

    I honestly wonder how they figure out what the "top company" is without using categories. It is WAY to broad.. there are still hundreds of companies that are worth 20x both of these companies

    No their is not. Lol. That's pure nonsense. You clearly have very little to no knowledge on this. The market determines their value. Current stock value on apple even having dipped represents like 400 billion in market capitalization. Only company close or challenging is Exxon as the article suggests. Then way below that is IBM, then Walmart I believe. They use one universal category "money". Opinions are great. When formulated on some knowledge. Just sayin.

    This is what happens when you don't give people what they want. It's very simple.

    What do you mean? It's not like they are being beat out by other cell companies. They lost the top spot to Exxon.

    dude, Android is so much more than customization. when I switched from iOS to Android in Nov 2011 I was a bit hesitant at first. I had a ****** phone (the LG Thrill which was anything but thrilling) and wasn't sure Id like it as a phone as much as I liked it on my tablet which I had 5 months earlier. I swapped the LG Thrill for the Galaxy S2 and and found Android to be a world better than iOS--and not for customization but because of how flexible and unrestricted it is. also for how easily 3rd party apps seamlessly integrate into Android OS.

    Prove your ignorance right son! It's not my job to chase your false accusations. Nor explain the context of the article which you are nowhere near! The first paragraph of the article outlines the topic. It doesn't say anything about state owned anything. But since your persistent post some. Forget hundreds as you suggest. Post one 20x more valuable.
