Thursday's stock hullabaloo was all about Facebook and how it closed at its lowest point yet. The bigger hullabaloo is that Apple closed at an all-time high of $636.34 per share.
Apple increased it's market cap and increased its lead in the "most valuable company on the planet" race, with the company now valued at $596,511,500.
The share price saw a $5.51 increase (up 0.87 percent). The highest Apple has ever traded at is an intraday spike of $644 on April 10, 2012.
