[H]ardOCP: Apple Topples the $1 Trillion Mark in Value

Apple Just Broke $1 Trillion Barrier

State oil company PetroChina briefly broke the US$1 trillion barrier in 2007 during its initial public offering, but has since dropped back down. Despite a decent earnings report, though, Amazon ended up a few millions short and stabilized near $900 billion for most of the past week.

Apple has finally reached the $1 trillion mark in value.

An electronic screen displays the Apple Inc. logo on the exterior of the Nasdaq Market Site following the close of the day's trading session in New York City, New York, U.S., August 2, 2018.

Apple's trillion-dollar market capitalization-the stock price per share multiplied by the number of outstanding shares-seems especially remarkable considering the company almost went bankrupt in 1997, but it's not the first time a company has hit the $1 trillion mark. The company's stock price started rising subsequently, resulting in 2.92 percent gain during the trading hours and closing at $207.39 in NY on Thursday.

In the letter, Cook also credited Apple cofounder Steve Jobs for reversing the company's misfortunes. However, his net worth is tied to Apple stock in a less conspicuous way.

The Montreal-based artist had tattooed his body from head to toe, including images of a skull and brain on his head. Genest had also had roles in TV shows such as Silent Witness and films, including 47 Ronin alongside Keanu Reeves .

To be sure, past stock gains are not a reliable predictor of future performance, and the surge in Amazon shares in recent years has been exceptional by most standards.

(AAPL) on Thursday became the first USA public company to reach $1 trillion market valuation, but Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said it was "not the most important measure" of the company's success.

On Wednesday, Apple's shares closed up nearly 6 percent and this was seen as its best one-day gain in 18 months, after reporting better-than-expected results on Tuesday night.

"China is a challenge, for sure, probably the biggest challenge that Apple faces in that regard because you have other services like WeChat that can potentially get in between your personal relationship with the phone", Jackson said.

Cook mentioned in the memo, "Financial returns are simply the result of Apple's innovation, putting our products and customers first, and always staying true to our values". "It's not the most important measure of our success". It now accounts for 4% of the S&P 500.
