Due to investors buying Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) stellar earnings and the overall rout of the Dow Jones and NASDAQ markets yesterday, Apple's $127 billion market capitalization now exceeds Hewlett Packard's (NYSE:HPQ) (and coincidentally Verizon's (NYSE:VZ)) $123 billion cap.

Dell's (NASDAQ:DELL) $65 billion market cap isn't even in the running; next stop: Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) $158 billion valuation?
