Posted by at 2:31 pm on June 4, 2011

Showing off how much Wall Street values companies that show an aggressive growth trend, Apple at the end of trading today surpassed in market capitalization the combined cap of both Microsoft and Intel, MacDailyNews noticed. The figures are based on the estimates of each company’s market value as posted on Yahoo’s financial section, and the numbers may vary slightly from market caps used by other finance sites, but it cements Apple’s reputation as a darling among long-term investors.

By the figures used from Yahoo stock site, Apple’s market value is $317.6 billion, while Microsoft at $201.6 billion and Intel at $115.21 billion come up just short at a combined value of $316.8 billion. While not reflective of each company’s absolute worth, the market cap determines a company’s value by calculating the combined value of all its outstanding stock– meaning the value changes at least slightly on a daily basis — and is influenced by a number of psychological factors in the minds of the shareholders and public, including a reputation for continuing expansion, a strong balance sheet, influence and/or loyalty with the public and a solid lineup of offerings.
