    Big difference between the two: Apple achieved that valuation with an earnings multiple of 20.

    MSFT did it with a multiple of 29.

    Yet, in any side by side comparison of the two companies products, Earnings and Balance Statements MSFT loses.

    It’s nice to have the top market cap, but it’s essentially meaningless to the shareholders.

    Apple will continue to reduce its share count. We will go under 4 billion shares early in calendar year 2021. I was originally forecasting late next year, but our stock price will be going way higher than originally forecast.

    It’ll take more years to go under 3 billion shares, but we eventually will. At some point, Apple will slow the buybacks and greatly increase the dividend.

    Life as a Big Apple Long can best be described as Full Freedom At All Times

    That’s the way that life should be lived.

    And when that time comes you will see far less churn in trading volume, flattening AAPL’s high/low swings on nothing news.
