Apple’s (AAPL) Market Cap Now Larger Than Poland & Belgium GDP

Apple’s parabolic repricing continues.

The stock was up over $21 yesterday ($45 since Friday’s close) on the back of a Morgan Stanley report, which included a price target of $960. The market is starting to reprice the stock to a valuation and multilple that we have long thought it deserves.

Trading this beast versus a buy-and-hold strategy has cost us,  but, hey  it’s all about risk management, no?

Apple’s market cap is now larger than the 2011 GDP of Poland, Belgium, Taiwan  and could surpass Saudi Arabia with another $5 move today.   Absolutely stunning!
