Apple Becomes World’s First Trillion Dollar Firm

Apple Becomes World’s First Trillion Dollar Firm

Apple made history yesterday when their valuation surpassed $1 Trillion. They are the first company in history to reach this number. However, this isn’t just big news for Apple, it’s big news for Technology companies in general. Years ago, nobody would’ve believe a technology company could exceed industries like automotive, steel, farming, and others. Undoubtedly, technology has become an important part of every industry and everyone’s lives. These numbers are even more amazing considering Apple had a $3 Billion dollar valuation in 1996. In fact, many analysts believed they’d go out of business by the turn of the century. Clearly they were wrong.
