Apple Grows to be the World’s Most Valuable Company
Investors at Wall Street were skeptical of most of the tech firms’ rebound ability when the ongoing pandemic ends. But they’re sure about one tech giant, Apple to rise over its losses better than other companies in the US. Thus, they speculated the common would still post better results than expected.
As their expectations came true! Apple has surprised the analysts by rising better than the median estimate of $409.63 per share value, to a record of $425.04 per piece. This rally by investors is driven by Apple’s submission of quarterly reports to the regulator, where it showed positive workouts even during the pandemic.
The company may have closed most of its physical stores across the globe, but still pushed its business through online means and better services. Thus, it has gained about $173 billion in the last quarter, pushing the company’s total market capitalization to $1.82 trillion! This has sent the world’s largest oil company, Saudi Aramco to second place with $1.76 trillion valuations.
This latest valuation is made according to Apple’s filings, where it mentioned that it has 4,275,634,000 outstanding shares, which includes the $16 billion worth buyback shares from June. Further, the company has also announced a new 4-for-1 stock split starting from August 31st this year. This would entail investors with four shares to each one share they hold, at the same value.
