Microsoft achieves $1 trillion status

Microsoft has succeeded in landing a market cap of $1 trillion, hence becoming the third US Company to achieve this status. The software sage accomplished this breakthrough just today followed by the sudden rise in stock rate after the strong financial earning of Q3. Microsoft, meets Apple and Amazon in striking the $1 trillion worth and remains unfounded by the rival Google.

The company’s stock rate released at $130 today, raised by four percent by the previous days’ closing price that was $125. Since stock rate was expected to vary that day, the company smashed the $1 trillion market during NASDAQ day transaction hours that morning. Microsoft’s recent assessment shows that it has gotten over Apple as the world’s most worthy organization, after momentarily beating it back in November last year.

Microsoft’s estimate is bounced up because of its cloud platform. The company has been releasing many cloud products in the recent times, since the company is ambitious about achieving Amazon’s AWS authority. At present Azure is following Amazon for cloud services, and leads Google’s own products and services.

Latest revenue assessment of Microsoft shows that the company the three lead buckets, in which it divides its business, are working healthy hence adding the same amount of stock in this quarter that is approximately 30 percent each.


These are MS Office, LinkedIn and Dynamics, which produce around $10.2 billion as revenue: whereas Azure cloud, server products, and enterprise service generate around $9.7 billion; and Windows, Xbox, and Surface generate $10.7 billion as revenue.

Although this elevated valuation of Microsoft is making many eyes wink, but its least the company itself seems to care for. Chris Capossela, the chief marketing officer puts it as “a metric that nobody on the senior leadership team is tracking”, at an event joined by GeekWire last year. He added “nobody is sitting around high-fiving when the stock hits some new high.”
