Apple first publicly traded company to hit $1 trillion mark

Apple known as being a trend setter, has hit the first ever 1 trillion dollar mark for a publicly traded company in the US.

This momentous occasion comes after Apple showed strong 3rd quarter earnings at the beginning of the week.  They closed out the day Thursday up 2.92% as the markets closed.

Several other companies are nipping at the $1 trillion mark, including Amazon, who analysts predict will be the next to that threshold.
