Apple Stock Once Again Smashing All-Time Highs

Apple shareholders must certainly be pleased with the price of the Cupertino-based company’s stock, which has skyrocketed to just under $680 per share in trading this morning in the aftermath of Apple’s favorable jury verdict in its patent trial with Samsung. A few weeks ago, Apple broke a previous all-time high and passed the $600 billion mark in market capitalization, while the One Infinite Loop corporation smashed Microsoft’s record, set over one decade ago, for most valuable publicly-traded stock ever the following Monday.

While its successful patent trial with Samsung is likely driving up the price of shares, Apple is also likely experiencing a surge in stock price because of rumors suggesting that the company will release its next-generation iPhone, new iPod touch and so-called “iPad mini” in the near future. Apple might also introduce a new iPod nano as part of refreshing its wider iPod lineup that has been neglected since late 2010 as Apple has focused on its iPhone, iPad and Mac lineups.
