Amazon tops US$1 trillion in stock market value

Is Amazon a monopoly

This growth was made clear when Apple managed to become the first US-based trillion-dollar company earlier this year.

Its stock surged during morning trading on the Nasdaq, reaching the milestone when its share price hit $2,050.50 per share.

Amazon retreated slightly after hitting the milestone, and near 1545, it was up 1.3 percent to $2,038.71.

Amazon is the second USA company to hit that mark, driven by its continued dominance in the retail world and its highly profitable cloud services business. The company's valuation has been teasing around the $1 trillion for a little while now, though all of that wait finally finished once the share price hit $2050.50.

Nadal 'bagelled' but survives Thiem test to reach semis
Thiem was also 5-3 ahead in the third set and 4-2 in the fourth before he was reeled in by Nadal, the three-time champion in NY . "I just (kept) going, I'm very sorry for Dominic, he's a close friend on tour, a great guy, and I wish him all the very best".

However it was tech giant Apple that was named as the first publicly listed USA company to be valued at $1,000,000,000,000, on 2 August.

The tech juggernaut isn't alone anymore, however, as Amazon has reached $1 trillion valuation.

Amazon.com on September 4 became the second USA company to reach $1 trillion in stock market value, just weeks after Apple hit the same milestone on August 2.

But of that massive revenue, retail is slowly beginning to take a back seat to other higher-margin services.

USA cancels Pakistan aid over militant record
Yet the U.S. has repeatedly treated this as aid, and has withheld, frozen, or outright cut the funding several times in the past. It also believes that a Pakistani crackdown could be pivotal in deciding the outcome of the long-running war in Afghanistan.

"The difference between the two is that Amazon has room to grow within its two main businesses". Amazon stock slipped below that threshold but has gained 1.17 percent as of 12:30 p.m. Bezos brought home an annual salary of $81,840 in 2017, according to regulatory filings.

Amazon shareholders have already had a extraordinarily good year.
