Apple After Steve Jobs: 10 Hits And Misses
October 04, 2012 11:06 AM Oct. 5 marks the one-year anniversary of Steve Jobs' death. During that time, Apple has had some amazing successes and some spectacular failures.
Hit: Apple is currently the most valuable publicly traded company in the world, as astounding comeback for a tech firm that nearly went belly-up in the 1990s. Sales of Apple's duo of genre-definers--the iPhone and iPad--continue to do exceptionally well. In fact, both products showed impressive year-over-year growth in Apple's most recent earnings report (above). For the company's stockholders, Apple's decision to share its wealth by issuing dividends--something Jobs refused to do--was another reason to cheer.
