Apple is the first publicly-traded U.S. company to hit a $1 trillion market capitalization. Amazon, which some analysts speculated would hit the milestone first, is second in value, worth $879 billion at last count on Thursday.
The share count was lower than the previous number as it factored in the company’s hefty stock buybacks. Market value is stock price times shares outstanding.
