Apple is no longer the most valuable company in the world

According to the agency, the oil company’s capital was $2.43 trillion, while Apple’s was $2.42 trillion.

“You can’t compare Apple to Saudi Aramco in terms of business or fundamentals, but the outlook for the commodity market has improved,” said James Meyer, chief investment officer at Tower Bridge Advisors. Said.

He also explained that the commodity market is taking advantage of inflation and shortages in supply.

At the beginning of 2022, Apple’s market cap was $3 trillion, nearly $1 trillion more than Aramco. But since then, shares of the company have dropped almost 20%, while those of the oil company have risen 28%.
