Roommates, it’s official!! After months of tech and financial experts closely monitoring when it would happen, Apple is now the first company in the world to ever be valued at $3 TRILLION dollars! You’ll recall that Apple’s market value first crossed the $1 trillion threshold in August 2018 and passed $2 trillion in August 2020.
It was only a matter of time before massive technology company Apple reached another major milestone—and this time it involves trillions! It was recently confirmed that for the first time in history a company is valued at $3 trillion dollars…and that company is none other than Apple. The company officially made history earlier today when its market value finally topped a $3 trillion, also making it the first publicly traded company ever to be worth that much.
Following the announcement of its new market value, shares of Apple stock briefly rose to about 3% higher than normal for an all-time record of $182.88, surpassing the $182.85 per share it needed to be worth $3 trillion.
Additionally, in 2021 Apple shares were up nearly 35% due to consumers increasing demand for company products. Sales for the new iPhone 13, subscriptions for Apple Music, Apple TV+, iCloud and its popular App Store all increased within the past year to help the tech giant cross the historic financial threshold.
Sales previously skyrocketed nearly 30% to more than $83 billion in the fall 2021 quarter back in September. Also, in case you didn’t know, Apple has a staggering $191 billion in cash.
