Apple: Products Vs. Stock

What You Could Have Earned

See what you could have earned if you bought Apple stock instead of an Apple product.

On Wednesday, Apple overtook Microsoft as the world's most valuable technology company, at least by one Wall Street measure — market capitalization. Michele Norris talks with Kyle Conroy, a student at the University of California, Berkeley about a table he's compiled that looks at how much money you might have today had you invested in Apple stock instead of buying Apple products, such as iMacs and iPods. We also hear from NPR's Robert Benincasa, who makes the same comparison for a number of other products.
