Apple surpassed the $2 trillion mark on Wednesday. Apple’s stock price briefly rose to $467.77. With these record numbers, Apple became the first company to cross this milestone.
Apple reached the $ 2 trillion mark despite declining iPhone sales
Despite the ongoing pandemic, the year for the company can clearly be called a successful one. After a 15% decline in iPhone sales during the 2019 New Year holidays, the company was able to get out of the crisis a little bit.
In July, the company reported a well-closed second quarter with $59.7 billion in revenues and strong growth in product and service sales. Apple attributed the strong performance to customers moving to work from home and the associated high online store sales. The company also quickly adapted to online sales when it had to close outlets.
By the way, Apple also became the first American company to surpass the $1 trillion market mark in 2018. It took only two years to double its value. To date, the company’s shares are up 60%. Interestingly, investors no longer see Apple as a device manufacturer, but rather as a software company.
Today the shares were valued at $462.83 at a market cap of $1.98 trillion.
