On this day in 1977 the Apple company was incorporated, and became known as Apple Computer, Inc. The founders and shareholders were Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. From 2012 Apple became the company with the highest total share value in the world, ahead of even the largest oil companies. Indeed, the total value of Apple shares in August 2012 was estimated at around 627 billion U.S. dollars, probably a record unsurpassed by any company throughout history. In 2013 the total value of Apple was estimated at over 400 billion dollars, which is still more than the shares of any other company in the world. Only some companies whose stocks aren’t present on the world market, such as Saudi Aramco, could possibly be more valuable than Apple.
The world headquarters of Apple are today located in the town of Cupertino, California. The town was named after Joseph of Cupertino, a Catholic saint. The Apple brand itself is so valuable today that it is believed to have surpassed even Coca-Cola as the most valuable brand in the world.
