Barron’s, the US investment magazine, declared on its cover last week that Apple would hit the $1tn valuation this year and that “we don’t think the peak [of Apple’s rise] is near”. Other companies settle for unit sales or revenues, but in many quarters, Apple collects more than 80% of gross profit across the smartphone industry.”Holger Zschaepitz (@Schuldensuehner) The race to become the first $1tn company has opened.

Other market analysts and financial experts predict Amazon could beat Apple to the $1tn title.
