  • Apple Lost General Mills Today 0 comments

    How big has Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) gotten?

    Well, with the nearly $30 decline today from its high to close and low, Apple lost enough market cap to equal the size of General Mills (NYSE:GIS). Yes, the ENTIRE COMPANY of General Mills.

    Is Apple too big? Well, when it gains or loses $25-$30 billion in a single day, just maybe it has.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
