According to investment bank, Wedbush, Apple’s market value by the end of next year could reach $2 trillion. Wedbush technical analyst, Dan Ives said in a report on Monday: “Given the tailwind of 5G in the next few years and the development momentum of Apple’s service industry, by the end of 2021, Apple is expected to be the first company with a market value of more than $2 trillion”.
