The American tech giant Apple, could soon be the first U.S. company to reach a market capitalization of 3 trillion dollars just over a year after it surpassed two trillion dollars.
That would be bigger than the entire equity markets of Germany and the UK.
Apple was the first to hit a 1 trillion dollar market cap in 2018, and doubled that valuation just two years later becoming the first company to surpass the milestone.
On Tuesday, shares of Apple jumped 3.5 percent, and then another two-and-a quarter percent the next day.
To hit three trillion, it needs to rise less than 4-and-a-half percent more.
