iPhone alone is the world's most profitable company EVER.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Apple
To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:
"Apple's overall profit margin is 30%. We estimate that the iPhone's profit margin is slightly higher, say 35%. The iPhone is currently generating annualized revenue of nearly $100 billion. The iPhone's annualized profit, therefore, may be as much as $35 billion a year. That's bigger than the $30 billion of profit ExxonMobil generated last year."
And that's just iPhone.
Apple also has computer, iPod, and iPad businesses.
