Apple has reclaimed its spot in the $1 trillion club.

Shares gained more than 2.6 percent Wednesday morning, running the iPhone maker’s market capitalization back above $1 trillion for the first time in 10 months. Apple has at least a $1 trillion valuation when shares are above $221.28 apiece.  Microsoft ($1.03 trillion) is the only other U.S. company that is a member of the elite $1 trillion club.
