Amazon.com Inc yesterday joined Apple Inc in the $1 trillion club, becoming the second member of the group after its stock price doubled in 15 months – reflecting the online retailer’s striking transformation from a profitless bookseller into a disruptive force of commerce.

It is understood that the company’s shares rose as high as $2,050.50 on Tuesday morning, pushing it over $1 trillion in value, before immediately falling back and then ending the day at $2,039.51, below the $1 trillion threshold.

While it took Apple almost 38 years as a public company to achieve the trillion dollar milestone, Amazon got there in 21 years. While Apple’s iPhone and other devices remain popular and its revenues are growing, it is not keeping up with Amazon’s blistering sales growth.
