Chart: Apple's Share Price Since the iPhone 5 Came Out

After Clay Johnson joked on Twitter that Apple had lost a Facebook's worth of value since the release of the iPhone 5, I decided to pull the company's chart. The percentage change is rather small, only 8 percent or so, but the loss of market cap is about $60 billion since September 21 when the new Apple phone came out.

This is despite the fact that the iPhone 5 broke all previous Apple sales records, which gives you some kind of idea bout the tremendous expectations that Wall Street (and Main Street) have for Tim Cook's company.
