Eventually Alphabet, the holding company that controls Google’s operations, also joined the “trillion-dollar club”. The company, in fact, yesterday reached the valuation of 1 trillion dollars, after Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft.
Many have noted that the milestone was touched just over a month after the farewell of Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
The holding controls several companies, including Google, Sidewalk Labs which focuses on technologies for the smart cities of the future, DeepMind specializing in the development of artificial intelligence systems, the telephone operator Google Fiber and Verify, a research organization in the scientific field that was previously under the umbrella of Google X. Nest and Chronicle instead in the last two years have been incorporated into Google.
As noted by CNBC, the hi-tech market in the United States currently has a total value of 5 trillion dollars, and the next one to enter the “trillion-dollar club” could be Facebook, but the road is still long since the Mark Zuckerberg’s social network currently has a capitalization of $ 620 billion.
Apple became the world’s first $ 1 trillion company in August 2018, followed by Microsoft in April last year.
