Apple has a market cap of $948.6 billion

Apple (AAPL) has a market cap of $948.6 billion. We have already learned that the company’s stock price has risen close to 15% this year. If it beats earnings and revenue estimates in the fiscal third quarter, little more than a 5% jump in its share price would be required for it to reach a market cap of $1 trillion.

Comparatively, the other top companies in terms of market cap include Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOGL), Microsoft (MSFT), and Facebook (FB) with market caps of $887.6 billion, $857.3 billion, $827 billion, and $621 billion, respectively.

Amazon is announcing its earnings results on July 26, and the company will require its share price to rise by ~11% for it to reach the $1 trillion mark.
