Who Will Follow the Steps of Apple?

On Thursday, Apple has successfully achieved the title of the first ever American Corporation to achieve the trillion-dollar mark. The question now- who will be next?

Followed by Google’s parent company, Alphabet, having $856 billion capitalization, and Microsoft at $830 billion respectively. The competition was very close between these three large companies.

Amazon said that their revenue inflated to over 43 percent in the first quarter. Amazon’s earnings keep on growing – and will continuously grow in a fast phase. The company’s sale was reported to gain $52.9 billion and a $2.5 billion profit. Amazon expects and told the Wall Street that the net sales of $54 billion would become at least $57.5 billion on the third-quarter.

According to Andy Hargreaves, an analyst at KeyBanc capital markets, the company continues to devote itself to great opportunities. At the same time, their core ad business is continuously growing.

Microsoft, being the “old tech”, mold itself to become a leading edge in the tech industry. The company’s sales increased up to $30.1 billion and revenue of $9.6 billion at the end of the second quarter. Timothy Horan said that they are expecting more in the following quarters.
