Apple v/s Tesla?

First there was Elon Musk's statement on how unsuccessful Apple has been poaching Tesla's employees (via Bloomberg) and now he has been caught saying that the way Tesla has been performing financially, it will catch up with Apple's valauation of more than $700 billion within 10 years, yeah you heard it right, in 10 years... But where will Apple be in ten years? (It apparently should already be worth more than a trillion dollars according to a certain someone). However the irony is that after this statement of his (that was made during Tesla's quarterly earnings call), his company's stock fell down sharply by around 6% (via WSJ). Either way, freedom to be arrogant and say audacious things outright always comes with a even bigger responsibility to achieve something equally daring and out of the world, am just saying, Elon (remember the poor Michael Dell guy)! 

If you take this year’s revenue, around $6 billion or thereabouts, and if we are able to maintain a 30% growth rate for 10 years, add to your 10% profitability number, and have a 20 P/E, our market cap would basically be the same as Apple’s is today.

Apple tries very hard to recruit from Tesla, but so far they’ve actually recruited very few people.
