Apple vs Google vs Microsoft: Financials 2002-2012

As a lover of tech and a bit of a Geek, I could reasonably argue that over the last 10 years there have been three companies that have pretty much owned my attention and sucked up a lot of my money. It’s been pretty much Apple vs Google vs Microsoft, but not always in that order.

 

With the recent Facebook IPO and Google stock splitting, I got to wondering how much money these companies actually make. Once I saw the eye watering sums of money they pull in, it further tickled my curiousity to see how much moolah they have pulled in over the last ten years. Right now, I almost wish I hadn’t looked.

 

Below you can see the following data graphed for the last ten years:

Apple vs Google vs Microsoft

  • Revenue
  • Net Income
  • Market Cap
  • Share Price

Prepare your mind for boggling, as these are gargantuan sums of money. The AAPL net revenue number made jaw go slack.
