Apple on the verge of reaching $1 trillion in market cap for first time in 10 months

10:03 am ET September 11, 2019 (MarketWatch)

Shares of Apple Inc. (AAPL) rallied 1.7% toward a 10-month high in morning trading Wednesday, after rising 1.2% the previous sessions on the back of the technology behemoth's iPhone launch event (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/apple-drops-price-on-new-iphone-11-undercuts-netflix-and-disney-on-streaming-2019-09-10). With the stock's recent rally, Apple is on the verge of getting back to being a trillion dollar company, something it hasn't been since Nov. 1, 2018; Apple's market capitalization is currently $995.4 billion. The stock only needs to rise another 0.5% to close at or above $221.28 for Apple's market cap to top $1 trillion, based on the latest disclosed 4.52 billion shares outstanding as of July 19. Getting back to being a trillion-dollar company would complete a recovery from a market-cap low of about $672.5 billion on Jan. 3, when the stock closed at a 21-month low of $142.19. Since then, Apple's stock has run up 55%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 19%. Apple's market cap is still behind first-place Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) at $1.04 trillion, but is nearly $100 billion above third-place Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) at $898.0 billion.
