Amazon also wants to sell you financial services - and anything else a household might need. Read this piece about Amazon's threat to the UK insurance industry:

Doug Vining Will Apple crack the $1 trillion cap?

"While the iPad and Mac continue to contribute, Apple’s fate largely rests on the success of the iPhone X. Apple this year has increasingly looked like it’s on a real pathway to becoming a $1 trillion company, and now the holiday quarter is going to show if it’ll be able to pull that off.

And the signals are definitely there. Apple briefly tapped a $900 billion market cap, though it’s slipped since then. That $1 trillion goal is just a jump of a bit more than 10 percent for the company, though for Apple that means adding more than $100 billion in value. But this year alone, shares of Apple are up nearly 50 percent as it increasingly looks like Apple is getting its act together after a middling 2016."

Doug Vining First trillion-dollar company

Here's an "outrageous prediction" from Saxo Bank for 2018:

Tencent will outstrip Apple and become the world’s largest company
Saxo’s head of equity strategy Peter Garnry writes that China is opening up its capital markets and the country’s enormous size and surging living standards are attracting investors from across the globe. Given this, it’s no surprise that tech-sector leader Tencent is bumping up against some of the world’s largest companies by market capitalisation.
He predicts that Tencent shares might advance another 100% despite the company’s already-enormous size and in 2018 the firm will steal the world market cap crown from Apple at well above $1 trillion.
