There’s been a lot of news on Wall Street the past few weeks, like Facebook’s stock tumbling a staggering 25% or Elon Musk’s recent tweet suggesting Tesla may go private. But perhaps the biggest news was Apple’s new trillion dollar market cap. Yes, you read that right. Apple is the first U.S. company to reach $1 trillion.
But Apple likely won’t be the only company joining the trillion dollar club. Alphabet, Amazon, and Microsoft are hot on their heels. Just visualizing a few billion dollars can be hard. But how much is $1 trillion? Just look at all these zeros: $1,000,000,000,000!
Apple didn’t win capitalism by cutting costs. iPhone X is Apple’s most expensive iPhone to date. Despite its $999 price tag, $1 trillion would buy approximately one billion iPhone XS. That’s enough to give almost every person in the United States three iPhones.
While Apple’s market cap doesn’t amount to true value or cash, it’s fun to think about what $1 trillion can buy, and trillionaires are probably going to go a bit bigger than phones. Use the right arrow to browse 9 More Ridiculous Things You Could Buy with Apple’s Trillion Dollar Value.
