Shares of Apple briefly hit $207.05 in late-morning trading, before retreating somewhat. The gains came after the iPhone maker reported strong earnings late Tuesday that prompted a two-day rally in the share price.

The company's stock was at $205.98, up 2.2 percent near 1555 GMT. Apple said it currently has 4.83 billion shares outstanding.
