The two largest companies in the world recently became the first corporations to reach valuations in excess of $1 trillion. Last week, Apple (AAPL) became the first to hit the milestone, currently with a market capitalisation of $1.1 trillion.

In Tuesday morning trading, Amazon (AMZN) became the second in the elite club, before the stock pared back slightly to leave it, again, teetering on the brink with a market cap of $973 billion.
