Interbrand points to Brand Channel article written in August titled "Apple Makes History as First US Company to Hit $1 Trillion," wherein it states: Apple has made history as the first US-based company to reach a market value of $1 trillion, 40 years after its humble start in a garage that led to a revolution in computing, music and mobile communications.


The milestone is testament to founder Steve Jobs' bold vision, CEO Tim Cook's strong leadership and a brand virtually unequaled in innovation and consumer loyalty. Apple's stock market value is greater than the combined capitalization of Exxon Mobil, Procter & Gamble and AT&T, accounting for 4% of the S&P 500.
