Microsoft’s current market cap has overtaken Apple’s, after living for nearly a decade in the shadow of the Cupertino company. At the time of writing Microsoft’s intra-day Market Cap is now 751.88B, higher than competing company Apple Inc. which is now 749.75B, by more than 2 billion dollars. Amazon (currently 741.90B) and Apple were dubbed the world’s most valuable tech companies by Market Cap earlier this year as they crossed the $1 trillion mark. With Microsoft now overshadowing all three, including Alphabet Inc, the firm now looks to be the most valuable tech company of the Silicon Valley giants. As can be seen from the graph, the last time Apple and Microsoft’s market capitalization came close to each other was way back in 2010. Investors are concerned about slowing revenue growth at the so-called FANG companies (Facebook, Apple, Netflix, and Google), a club of high flyers Microsoft has traditionally been excluded from. Now they are betting company spending on cloud services and software will remain strong as companies strive to increase efficiency and productivity, while Facebook and Google are increasingly coming under scrutiny for their consumer data practices.
