Apple, Google and Amazon all reported results yesterday and there's talk one of these firms could hit the $1tn market capitalisation mark this year.

Matti Littunen, a senior researcher at Enders Analysis, says the firms have big differences in terms of scale and the areas of business they focus on. But there are commonalities.

"All of them have big expectations, addressable markets and global models," he says.
