Apple attain $2 trillion value

Apple attains to reach a $2 trillion market value, a testament to how tech giants have gained from the upheaval of the coronavirus pandemic.

The iPhone maker attained the distinction in mid-morning trading and was up 1.1% at $467.18 near 1545 GMT. The company had previously become the first giant to hit $1 trillion in market value in March 2018.

Apple is followed by other technology companies, including Amazon, Microsoft and Google parent Alphabet, all of which now have more than $1 trillion in market value.

Shares in Apple have roughly doubled from March lows, an astonishing performance which has lifted chief executive Tim Cook´s net worth to $1 billion for the first time, according to a Bloomberg Billionaires Index calculation.

Even as other large tech firms have shot higher on robust demand during lockdowns, Apple has outpaced its rivals by delivering strong sales of gadgetry including wearables and tablets, along with new apps and services which have gained ground during the global health crisis.

“Apple has been wildly successful in building out its platforms, mitigating the fact that iPhone sales had peaked, by building products that surround it and services that enhance it,” said Avi Greengart, analyst with the consultancy Techsponential.

“It all feeds back into the cycle for Apple.”

In the past quarter ending in June, Apple reported profits climbed eight percent to $11.2 billion and revenues jumped 11% to $59.7 billion.
