YUEQING, China - A shipbuilding boom raised the fortunes of this hardscrabble industrial port. Five-star hotels sprouted along with machinery depots and metal shops.

Bolstered by reports of record iPhone 5 sales, Apple shares surpassed $700 for the first time, passing the mark in after-hours trading Monday.

Apple's market value is now just below $656 billion.
