Do I Care About Apple’s Market Cap? No. But I Sure as Hell Wish We Hadn’t Sold Off That Apple Stock We Bought in ’97
How does Microsoft feel about being overtaken by Apple as the world’s largest technology company?
It couldn’t care less.
Well, that’s what CEO Steve Ballmer says, anyway.
Asked Wednesday if it bothers him that Apple (AAPL) has finally surpassed Microsoft (MSFT) in total value (click on chart below to enlarge), Ballmer shrugged it off.
“It is a long game. We have good competitors, but we too are very good competitor,” he said. “We are executing very well and that is going to lead to great products and great success….I will make more profit and certainly there is no technology company on the planet that is as profitable as we are….Stock markets will take care of the rest.”
