Amidst the market turmoils Apple was the most valuable U.S. company for a short time. Now Exxon Mobile is slightly ahead again.

For a brief moment today Apple was the most valuable U.S. company. Most people expected Apple to reach that goal in Fall with all the cool things to happen then. The iPhone 5 launch along with iOS 5 and the iCloud should be getting Apple Stock above $500. Right now Apple is trading at $365. The crazy stock market reactions over the last days amidst fears of Armageddon has mixed things up. Exxon Mobile stock totally tanked and Apple recovered today a bit faster. Now both companies are pretty close in terms of market cap:

Apple (AAPL): $339 Billion (2:23pm EDT)
Exxon Mobile (XOM): $341 Billion (2:23pm EDT)

So anytime Apple can be again the most valuable company.

Today (August 10) Apple is the most valuable company. The markets have closed and Apple came out above Exxon Mobile in a down market.
