Apple’s Market Cap Tickles $400 Billion

But Apple is fast closing in on it.

With its share price charting a new all-time high Thursday, the company’s market cap passed the $400 billion mark for the first time ever before slipping back in afternoon trading. It’s still within spitting distance of that milestone, though.
