Apple's having a good Monday. 

Shares of the consumer electronic giant hit an all-time high of $168.07 on Monday morning, valuing the company at roughly $860 billion. Shares are a bit off that peak, more recently trading at $166.63, up 2.2 percent from the previous close. 

Apple on Friday said that advance orders for the iPhone's 10th-anniversary edition, the iPhone X, have been "off the charts," squashing some concerns over tepid interest in the US and China for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus released in late September.

The company will report its quarterly financial results on Thursday and will release the iPhone X on Friday. 

Apple could not immediately be reached for comment.
