On August 25, 2016, AAPL was valued at $108.01 (adjusted for dividends.) On August 24, 2019, AAPL meanwhile closed at $216.24.
Tim Cook has said that he plans to give his entire fortune to charity. Earlier this month, he donated 23,700 Apple shares to an unspecified charity. At current prices, that’s equivalent to a little more than $5 million."
