The stock value of Apple doubled itself since March 2020, but it doesn’t show the whole story of the tech giant.

Apple joins to Aramco, the Saudian oil company as the only two companies to cross the 2 trillion mark. But Aramco already manage to lose that title in cross it back down, so now Apple is ranked #1 in estimate value among all the companies in the world.

This new estimation happened after Apple’s stock crossed the $467.77 price a share, but during the trading day the price dropped to $462.83 and that dropped them under 2 trillions.

This new record is surprising because Apple announced back in February that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apple might suffer loses.
