On the other hand, Amazon is where people go when they want to get a product more cheaply, more easily, or more quickly. Since the iPhone first went on sale in 2007, Apple shares have soared by 1,100% and have jumped almost a third in the past year. As for Amazon, the internet retail giant has seen a steady, yet speedy rise in its share price, with its market value jumping from $600bn to $700bn in just 16 days. Twitter.

Apple, on the Verge of a $1 Trillion Valuation, Dominates the World of Public Companies

Its stock has been on a relentless upward march for the last two years straight, and the latest earnings report brings more of the same good news for shareholders. If the company’s share price increases just $4.00 more, Apple will easily become the first company worth more than $1 trillion.

The results aren’t even close. We gathered the data for our visualization from Forbes, which we used to identify the largest company headquartered in each country.
