$1tn target: Apple was up 1.4% after markets opened yesterday
Apple was last night edging closer to becoming the world’s first trillion-dollar company as its shares hit record highs.
The US tech giant was up 1.4 per cent after markets opened yesterday, breaching the $190 (£140) mark for the first time.
Most analysts believe its shares would need to reach around $194 (£143.45) to be worth $1trillion.
It was yesterday valued at about $960billion (£710billion) overall – it has gained about $74billion (£54.7billion) since the start of the year.
The rally comes after Wall Street titan Warren Buffett gave it a ringing endorsement. It also stunned Wall Street with results that were better than expected, even as iPhone sales slowed.
