Ideas, Updates & Analysis


At some point in the future, people may ask "When did AAPL hit 1 trillion in market cap?".

It happened today Thu, August 2, 2018.

$1 Trillion is $1,000,000,000,000.

Many investors expected this to happen, especially recently.

Just 10 short years ago, in 2008, the market cap was around $100 billion.

What an amazing achievement in a decade.

Also, many investors strongly believe AAPL is still undervalued.

The P/E Ratio is still under 20. Wow!

So do you own AAPL?

If yes, congrats.

It has been a great ride and probably will continue to be.

If no, why not?

The other 3 companies that are within striking distance are AMZN, GOOG and MSFT.

Each of those 3 stocks are in the $800 billion market cap range.

Meanwhile, Apple is on it's way to it's 2nd trillion.


Thu, Aug 2, 2018 AAPL @ $207.39

Thu, Aug 2, 2018 AMZN @ $1,834.33

Thu, Aug 2, 2018 GOOG @ $1,226.15

Thu, Aug 2, 2018 MSFT @ $107.57

Here is the math.

In order to figure out what stock price will bump AAPL's market cap to $1 Trillion, we need to know the number of Shares Outstanding.

Shares Outstanding: 5,074,013,000

https://www.nasdaq.com

Now, let's divide $1 Trillion by the Shares Outstanding.

$1,000,000,000,000 / 5,074,013,000 = $197.08

$197.08

Apple closed at a new record high today at $193.98

It needs to move up just $3.10 which is about 1.6%.

This could happen as early as tomorrow.

Either way, it really doesn't matter.

It's just a number.

Also, there are a few other stocks that may get to that valuation as well like Amazon, Google, Microsoft.

So let's say you are a little cautious about buying any of these stocks right now.

Another way to get involved in this rally in tech while minimizing single stock risk is buying the Technology Sector SPDR.

The symbol is XLK.

State Street Global Advisors is the company that offers this ETF as well as many others.

The top ten holdings are the who's who in this sector.


Wed, Jun 6, 2018 AAPL @ $193.98

Wed, Jun 6, 2018 AMZN @ $1,695.75

Wed, Jun 6, 2018 GOOG @ $1,136.88

Wed, Jun 6, 2018 MSFT @ $102.49

Microsoft has acquired GitHub for $7.5B in stock

https://techcrunch.com

The market capitalization of MSFT is $780 billion.

This $7.5 billion purchase represents less than 1% of $780 billion market cap.

It's also worth mentioning that MSFT stock was up almost 1% today on this news.

The increase in stock price today alone almost paid for the entire acquisition.

I remember when Google bought YouTube for $1.65 billion in stock back on October 9, 2006

The increase in Google's stock price more than paid for the entire purchase within a few days.

So, what does it mean when the acquirer's stock price goes up?

It means that the market likes the purchase.


Mon, Jun 4, 2018 AAPL @ $191.83

Mon, Jun 4, 2018 AMZN @ $1,665.27

Mon, Jun 4, 2018 GOOG @ $1,139.29

Mon, Jun 4, 2018 MSFT @ $101.67
