Apple hits a trillion-dollar market cap — watch it move live here
Apple shares hit the historic $1 trillion market value milestone Thursday.
The stock reached the price of $207.05 that was needed to bring it to the $1 trillion mark.
The tech giant's shares have soared since reporting better-than-expected quarterly earnings on Tuesday after the bell. The stock jumped 5.9 percent on Wednesday and continued higher Thursday.
Apple is the first publicly traded U.S. company to hit a $1 trillion market capitalization. Amazon, which some analysts speculated would reach the milestone first, is second in value, worth $879 billion at last count on Thursday.
The share count was lower than the previous number as it factored in the company's hefty stock buybacks. Market value is stock price times shares outstanding.
