Apple Hits the Trillion Dollar Jackpot!

Apple’s historic climb created a new breed of millionaires.

On Thursday, August 2, 2018, Apple made history by becoming the first publicly-traded U.S. company to reach a market valuation of $1 trillion.

Congrats Tim Cook! Apple won the trillion-dollar race!

It all happened when Apple’s stock crossed $207.05 per share at 11:48 ET. Although the stock price has fluctuated since that time, it’s still exciting to see the company reach 52-week highs after an impressive earnings call on Tuesday, July 31st.

A Stellar Quarter for Apple

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, announced best June quarter revenue and earnings ever due to the strong performance of iPhone services and wearables. The company generated $53.3 billion in revenue for the three months ended on June 30th. iPhone grew faster than the global smartphone market. The app store generated nearly twice the revenue of Google Play. In addition to this, Apple is expanding geographic coverage to multiple countries.

Who’s Next?

Wallstreet is on the edge of their seats trying to determine which company will be the next to be inducted into the trillion dollar club.

The next candidate in line is Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN). On Thursday, June 28th, Amazon took a deeper plunge into the healthcare industry by acquiring online pharmacy PillPack. Amazon also unveiled their Delivery Service Partners program that gives entrepreneurs the chance to operate their own local delivery service with as little as $10,000. The market capitalization is only decimals away from $900 billion.

Alphabet and Microsoft aren’t too far away. Some analysts believe that Microsoft won’t hit the trillion dollar mark until another 12 months of activity passes us.
