Amazon Becomes the Second $1 Trillion Company (For a Short While)

Did you know that the world saw its first two companies worth a trillion dollars?

That’s right, a trillion!

The first company was Apple, which isn’t a surprise. The iPhone manufacturer revolutionised the world of technology, so this milestone is well-deserved.

Recently, Amazon became the second company to achieve this incredible market cap.

However, it didn’t last long.

After seeing a 1.9% jump, Amazon’s shares hit US$2,050.50 per share and crack one trillion dollar mark in market cap.

Shortly after, the stocks returned back to US$2,039.51, which lowered Amazon’s value to US$994.8 billion.

Over the course of the past year, Amazon’s shares have doubled in value. The biggest growth drivers have been retail and cloud computing.

It took Apple a little less than 38 years to reach $1 trillion.

Amazon did it in 21 years.


It almost single-handedly changes the way people shop.

So what does this mean for you?

Well, you could consider joining the sellers and becoming a part of the soon-to-be one-trillion-dollar company.

Amazon is very supportive of its sellers, which is why diving into its waters can be a great idea.
