Kit Rees and Joe Easton for BloombergQuint:

Apple’s guidance for the all-important September quarter cheered Wall Street amid concerns about the impact on sales from the U.S.-China trade war and increasing competition from smartphone rivals.

Goldman Sachs and Piper Jaffray raised their price targets… The shares jumped 4.3% in pre-market trading on Wednesday. The gain could push the company’s market value back above $1 trillion, depending on the number of shares Apple had outstanding at the end of the quarter.
