Aramco closes in on Apple as world’s most valuable firm

The rally in oil prices has boosted the world’s biggest oil company’s shares

Aramco

Saudi Arabian Oil Co. briefly hit a record high on Monday, taking its market capitalisation close to that of Apple in the race for the world’s most valuable company.

The rally in oil prices has boosted the world’s biggest oil company’s shares, while a broader selloff has put Apple under pressure.

Apple, which has held the market cap title since 2020, has been hit by higher interest rates that fuel concerns about future earnings growth for technology companies.

The iPhone maker declined 2.4 per cent in premarket trading, suggesting that it could shed $60bn in market value to $2.49tn versus Saudi Aramco’s $2.44tn.
