    It might seem a little odd that one single company is now worth more than the entire publicly traded market of a major economy. But that’s what has happened to Apple AAPL -0.18% just recently: that one single firm is now worth more than the entirety of the Russian stock market. However, this isn’t so much a story about how wonderfully Apple is doing (the valuation of Apple is still quite low going by the traditional numbers like EPS and so on), rather, it’s more of a story about how appallingly bad Russian public policy is.

    Here’s the Telegraph commenting upon it:

    Apple is now worth more than Russia’s stock market, new data have revealed.

    The US technology giant’s market capitalisation has overtaken the combined value of all Russian public companies for the first time in history, Bloomberg reported.

    Apple, the world’s most valuable company, has added $147bn to its market cap this year and was worth $652bn as of November 12. The shares closed up 1.2pc to $114.18 each on Friday.

    Russian equities have fallen $234bn to $531bn in the same period, Bloomberg data stated.

    I thought Russia was poised to take over the world because the US has become so weak. They sure hit the Olympics out of the park with that state of the art Olympic village. I can see why everyone is so worried about Russia.

    I dated a russian broad for a few years in my 20's. Unbelievable sex drive and an awesome body. Like dating a bipolar chick without the crazy.

    The entire Russian economy, and therefore Russia's power in the world, is tied to the price of oil.

    I am sure that when Russia invaded the Ukraine one of the first phone calls from DC was to Riyadh, to tell them the price per barrel needed to start tanking.

    Once they build a pipeline from the PA fracking lands to the Atlantic Ocean, and start floating natural gas to Europe, Russia is gonna get fucked hard and the price of crude will go up again.

    "If they don't beat you, they don't love you". What Russian women would tell each other about Russian men.
