At market close on March 10, 2000, the Nasdaq composite hit 5048.62, an all-time high. Today, Nasdaq edged back to those all-time highs but exuberance was yielding to reason. As this Reuters graphic shows, the list of the Nasdaq's top 10 most valuable companies looked a lot different then. Microsoft sat atop that peak-of-the-bubble market, with a market cap of $525.4 billion; but Facebook didn't yet exist, Google wasn't public and Apple closed the day at $4.49, about one twenty-eighth of its price today.
