    I find it very hard to believe and frustrating that the highest profit company is Vodafone.
    Beating Apple by over 30 billion. Is this simply a mistake? Or is it true.
    It's been like it for weeks and I'm surprised there has been no press coverage if true.
    There profits are also 10 billion £ above there sales how is this possible? My only thought is that these are from extended contracts signed years ago for business.

    If it is true how?
    And why is this not more heard of? Especially being a uk company on a respected website

    I would not consider Apple to be more profitable than Vodafone
