What you need to know
- Apple has become the first U.S. company to reach a $2 trillion market cap.
- This as shares reach more than $468 each.
- Who knows where it'll go next?
Apple reached a $2 trillion cap thanks to a share price of almost $468. And, at the time of writing, it's still increasing.
Today makes Apple the first U.S. company to reach the fabled $2 trillion mark, doubling its valuation in slightly more than two years. The company reached a $1 trillion market cap on August 2, 2018.
While Apple is the first U.S. company to hit the milestone, it surely won't be the last. The likes of Amazon, Microsoft, and Alphabet are already worth more than $1 trillion apiece and their numbers are only set to go upwards.
Nobody can match Apple's upward tragectory, though, and Wall Street has long expected it to be the first U.S. company to break that $2 trillion barrier.
