Apple's share price just won't quit.
Shares in the iPhone maker have reached another new high – this time the share price peaked at $134.54 during early trading. That gave it a market cap of more than $775bn.
It has slipped back down now to around $131.5 – and its market cap has likewise dropped to a mere $764.15bn.
Back in January, Apple neared the $700bn barrier. That was dwarfed in February when its share price soared to $131.44, pushing the market cap up to $770bn.
Today's surge followed yesterday's strong set of results, with a 27 per cent increase in revenues to $58bn (£38bn) for the second quarter, with profits rising to $13.6bn, up from $10.2bn last year.
Much of this was powered by sales in China, which offset declining iPad sales.
Investor Carl Icahn has previously said he believes Apple is worth more than $1 trillion. Certainly Tim Cook and team appear to be edging ever closer to that historic market cap.
