Apple's Status as World's Most Valuable Company at Risk: Chartby

The iPhone maker fell behind Alphabet Inc., the owner of the Google search service, by market value in Thursday’s trading. A similar move happened on Feb. 2, after Alphabet reported fourth-quarter earnings and revenue that beat analysts’ estimates. Apple took back the lead the next day.
