On the first day of trading in 2022, Apple‘s stock (AAPL) price continued its rapid increase, making it the first publicly traded business in the world to be valued at $3 trillion.

After briefly passing the $2.9 trillion threshold in afternoon trade, the company’s market value fell to around $2.9 trillion as its stock price is down. The value of Apple’s stock has tripled since the end of 2017, and it is expected to cross $2 trillion by 2020. In August 2018, it became the world’s first $1 trillion company.
