Apple on Tuesday held its annual shareholder meeting at its Cupertino headquarters. The gathering is standard affair—company executives and board members meet with stockholders to discuss a wide range of topics, including performance and proposals.
The most interesting part of today’s meeting, however, was Tim Cook’s informal Q&A session. The casual section allows attending shareholders to offer up their questions and comments to the CEO and other members of the company’s senior leadership team.
We didn’t want to let this milestone pass by without acknowledging it: shares of Apple have hit the $119.95 mark in intraday trading, the highest stock price for the Cupertino firm since late 2015 and good for a cool $639.7 billion market cap. $AAPL hit a 52-week low of $89.47 in May 2016.

Apple’s first quarter is of course its holiday quarter, which covers the popular 3-month holiday shopping period between October and December. And as usual, all eyes will be on the company to see if it was able to solve its recent growth problems.
Apple on Tuesday released its earnings report for the third [fiscal] quarter of 2016.

Tim Cook on Monday appeared on CNBC’s ‘Mad Money’ to talk with host Jim Cramer about Apple’s recent earnings report. The iPhone maker announced weaker-than-expected Q2 sales last week, and its stock has since dropped more than 10 points.
While the interview is transparently a PR move to let Wall Street know that Apple is still on the right path, Cook did offer up some interesting comments about the future of his company. Naturally, we’ve highlighted some of our favorites for you below.
