Alphabet previously topped Apple as the largest company on Feb. 2 of this year, but the Cupertino, California-based iPhone maker reclaimed its title during the following session.

Apple had been the largest company, after surging past Exxon Mobil in 2012. The two battled for the No. 1 spot in 2013, but since then Apple has been far and away the largest company.
