Apple has lost market cap in dramatic dimensions in the first half of 2013. According to Reuters, the company has lost $128 billion. Now Exxon Mobile has a higher market cap again and Apple gets pushed to second place.
Exxon Mobile stands today at a market cap of $403.24 billion and Apple has $394.98 billion.
I am though pretty confident that Apple will take the lead again latest early 2014. The holiday quarter will be critical for Apple and the company is holding back all hardware releases for this crucial quarter. With the release of the new iPhones (iPhone 5S, iPhone Mini), iPads (iPad 5, iPad mini 2) and possible iWatch sales are likely to explode.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
