This week, Apple’s market capitalisation crossed the US$1 trillion ($1.36 trillion) mark for the first time on Thursday, making it the first US company to reach the 13-digit milestone. Apple’s share price continued to inch upwards on Friday and closed with a market cap of US$1.01 trillion. To put things into perspective, Apple would be worth more than Indonesia’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which was US$1.004 trillion in 2017. However, growing US-China trade tensions could be a real headache for Apple. On Wednesday, the Trump administration said it was considering imposing a 25% tariff on over US$200 billion of Chinese goods. Amongst the major tech players, Apple has been identified as the most vulnerable to an all-out trade war, given that China accounts for nearly 20% of Apple

The Week Ahead: Keppel Corp, SATS, CCT and CMT
Four more Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) companies are pencilled in for quarterly results next week. Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4) is starting to look more like the conglomerate that it is, rather than just a builder of oil rigs. In April, it posted a 33% jump in first-quarter earnings. This was thanks to a stronger performance from its property division. Keppel Corp will report on Thursday. It wasn’t the best of quarters for SATS (SGX: S58) when it reported earnings for the final three months of its financial year in May. Fourth-quarter earnings were down 1.8% following a slowdown in food solutions. Thankfully, that was offset by better results at gateway services. SATS will announce first-quarter results on Thursday.
