    • Of the six biggest companies in the world, all but Saudi Aramco are American tech firms, and all are worth more than $1 trillion.
    • “Tech companies getting into the $1 trillion club is almost viewed like a cup of coffee in Silicon Valley now,” Dan Ives, a tech analyst at Wedbush Securities, tells CNBC Make It. “It’s not the mega event that it was just two or three years ago. It shows that Big Tech is in an unmatched position coming out of the pandemic.”

        • Google’s parent company hit a $2 trillion valuation in early November, less than two years after it passed the $1 trillion mark in January 2020.
