Apple (AAPL) just kicked down the door of a major valuation milestone and its next big round number valuation may not be far off the not-too-distant future.
The tech giant on Wednesday became the first U.S. company to surpass the $2 trillion market cap level. Apple shares hit the mark by surpassing $467.77 early on in the trading session, and then extended gains into the afternoon.
Apple’s achievement comes quickly after the company’s valuation eclipsed $1.5 trillion in June.
For long-time Apple watchers, the next stop on the Apple freight train is in sight.
