Apple's cash mountain

Apple is sitting on top of a cash mountain with its current market value $US500 billion. It poses the question, will the company keep climibing, or will its value eventually tumble.?

What would you do with $500 billion dollars? Well for Apple the answer is obvious. It’s going to invest the money in its company, and try and increase its current funds to an even more insane figure.

Today’s infographic is a visualisation of Apple’s worth, just in case you needed a further reminder of how much cash Apple actually has.

While the infographic says Apple's worth is $US400 billion, that figure has now increased to $US500 billion. Yet, in a testment to Apple's growth, the graphic was only created a month ago. 

Regardless, it gives a good visualisation of what Apple could do with its cash. 

As an interesting side note, Microsoft peaked its worth at $US627 billion before plummeting to its current value of $US267.

So just how far will Apple climb before it tumbles off the mountain? Or an even more interesting question, will it tumble at all?
