On the morning of the 19th American Eastern time, Apple’s market value once exceeded $2 trillion, becoming the first listed company in the United States to achieve this milestone performance. < / P > < p > 2 trillion US dollars, equivalent to one tenth of the GDP of the United States, almost equal to the size of the entire Italian economy. What’s more, Apple has only experienced two years from the first listed company with a market value of more than $1 trillion to a market value doubling. < / P > < p > the new crown epidemic, which is still raging in the United States, has not stopped the rapid advance of Apple’s stock price. Apple’s share price has more than doubled from its trough in late March. In contrast, from the macro-economic point of view, the GDP of the United States in the second quarter fell by 32.9% on a year-on-year basis, the largest drop since records were made in the 1940s. From the perspective of corporate performance, more than 400 large-scale enterprises in the United States have declared bankruptcy this year, including dozens of “century old stores” with a long history, which is the largest one in the United States in ten years Tide production. However, apple is not the only U.S. technology company to “ride the storm” in the epidemic. The market value of Amazon and Microsoft is about $1.6 trillion, and the market value of Google is more than $1 trillion. Although the strength of technology giants against the trend is related to the measures such as home office during the epidemic period and the technical operation of the company itself, it also reflects to a certain extent that the Matthew effect of the “constant stronger, the weaker the weaker” of the US economy has been further strengthened in the epidemic. < p > < p > and behind this trend is the looming figure of the US authorities. The $2 trillion mark is not only a milestone in Apple’s market value, but also roughly equal to the amount of relief plan launched by the United States in response to the impact of the new epidemic. However, since the adoption of the plan in April, the US unemployment rate has exceeded 10% for four consecutive months. On the one hand, more than a million people apply for unemployment benefits for the first time every week; on the other hand, the “nowhere to put” liquidity has pushed the market value of a few giant enterprises to record high levels – and the data shows that 50% of the stocks held by American families belong to the richest 1%, and 92% belong to the richest 10%. The answer is clear to whom the “epidemic politics” has suffered and who has become rich. At home, the U.S. authorities have been “making up for what is not enough” at home, and they are frantically suppressing the competitors of American enterprises abroad. Most market analysts believe that one of the factors supporting this round of Apple’s share price rise is that investors are full of expectations for Apple’s upcoming 5g mobile phone. Huawei, as one of Apple’s strongest rivals in 5g mobile phone field, has been subjected to escalating political persecution in the United States in recent years, until it was completely cut off the supply channel of chips and related technologies by the United States. Although political factors can make apple and other US technology enterprises gain some competitive advantages temporarily, they are “sure to die with this prosperity”. The Pandora box opened by the United States is also causing more and more troubles to its own enterprises. At present, the digital tax implemented by many countries in the European Union aims at technology giants such as apple, which makes the U.S. authorities cry out that they are discriminated against and even retaliate by imposing tariffs. This is just one of the first political bitter experiences of American companies abroad. In fact, apple and other technology companies are also wary of the political risks created by the US authorities. After the trump administration announced an executive order to ban wechat, more than a dozen large US multinational companies, including apple, spoke to White House officials, saying the move could undermine their competitiveness in the world’s second largest economy. It can be seen that no one knows the value of China’s market better than them; no one knows better than them the truth that “cooperation brings both benefits, while struggle leads to both injuries”; and no one is willing to turn an apple that could have glittered with gold into a bitter fruit of politics.
