Interesting Apple Factoids

Apple (Nasdaq Ticker: AAPL) has an amazing story.  When Apple Computers first became a publicly traded company, it was a computer company.  Steve Jobs took the company public and the stock experienced stellar performance after its IPO.  Unfortunately, dark clouds were looming ahead for Apple.  There was a fierce battle between Apple Computers and Microsoft for dominance in the computer industry.  Microsoft won the battle and Apple Computers stock came crashing down.  Steve Jobs left the company after Apples defeat.

Steve Jobs came back into the company with a new vision to turn it into a consumer electronics company.  The company was renamed from Apple Computers to Apple Inc.  Apple Inc. stock is now the darling of Wall Street and its consumer electronic product is the darling of Main Street.
