September 24, 2010, 8:31 PM UTC

Up 18.5% in September alone. Comes within spitting distance of $300

Shareholders who stuck with Apple (AAPL) in fiscal 2010 — which ends on Saturday — were well rewarded. The stock closed Friday at $292.32, up 1.18% for the day, 5.7% for the week, 18.9% for the month and 57.6% for the year.

At about 9:45 a.m. it hit $293.53, an all time high and only $6.47 away from that $300 price target the sell-side analysts have been talking about for what seems like years.
