Apple’s market capitalization soared past $3 trillion Friday, a historic milestone as the world’s largest company continues to grow larger thanks to resilient profits and product sales.

Shares of the iPhone maker jumped more than 1% to a fresh all-time high of $192 in morning trading and are now up nearly 55% this year.

Now valued at $3.02 trillion, Apple remains the only $3 trillion company in history, having briefly crossed the threshold in January 2022.

Apple is nearly $500 billion more valuable than the next-largest company, Microsoft ($2.5 trillion market cap), while Saudi Aramco ($2.1 trillion), Alphabet ($1.5 trillion), Amazon ($1.3 trillion) and Nvidia ($1 trillion) round out the exclusive trillion-dollar club.

Even after the meteoric rise, Apple can gain another 25% over the next 12 months, Citi analyst Atif Malik wrote in a Friday note, setting a $240 price target for the stock thanks to underappreciated room for growth in profit margins.

Apple would be worth $3.8 trillion should it meet Citi’s target.



Apple is worth nearly as much as Tesla, Meta, Berkshire Hathaway, UnitedHealth and Visa—the sixth through tenth most valuable American companies—combined.


Forget $3 trillion—Apple could be worth $4 trillion by 2025, bullish Wedbush analyst Dan Ives wrote in a Wednesday note to clients. The company’s $3,499 headset set to release next year “is the first step in a broader strategy for Apple to build out a generative AI driven app ecosystem for its golden customer base,” Ives gushed. Wedbush has a $220 price target for Apple stock, above consensus but below Citi’s $240 target, which is the highest of any Wall Street firm, according to Bloomberg.



Apple brought in $394 billion in sales and $100 billion in profit during its most recent fiscal year, making it the second-most profitable company in the world, trailing only Saudi Aramco.


7.5%. That’s Apple’s weight on the S&P 500, making it by far the most influential component of the widely-tracked index. Apple’s nearly $940 trillion in added valuation this year accounts for roughly a fifth of the S&P’s $4.4 trillion in total added market cap.



Apple’s stock surge this year comes even after the company posted consecutive quarters of year-over-year revenue declines for the first time in four years. In a note to clients earlier this month, UBS analysts led by David Vogt downgraded their rating for Apple shares from a buy to a hold, explaining the stock doesn’t “offer a compelling risk/reward particularly” given its expectations for dampened iPhone sales amid a shaky macroeconomic climate.
