In a report by Nick Bilton of the New York Times, various ‘statisticians and investors’ say Apple, at a conservative estimate, will be the first company worth US$1 trillion on April 9, 2015. Other industry figures expect the milestone to come much sooner, predicting August 16, 2013. The Cupertino-based company is currently valued at US$656 billion.
The report points to Apple’s expansion into the mobile market with its slew of iOS products – including the top-selling iPhone and iPad – as the force behind increasing revenue.
Apple’s trajectory in the stock market has also reached an all-time high, with shares doubling in price in the last year, following the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
