On February 5, we reported that Apple had resumed the position of most valuable company in the world after reaching the fourth position (due to the devaluation of its shares). A day later, however, Microsoft recovered the crown.
This week, things are not looking good for Apple – and it ended up being overtaken by Amazon.
With a 0.42% drop in the $ AAPL and a 0.12% appreciation of the $ AMZN, Apple now occupies the third position in this disputed ranking hand in hand – even though, in practice, this title represents absolutely nothing. Google (Alphabet) comes next, closing the Top 4 and at a relatively far distance.
The numbers for the day looked like this:
|1||Microsoft||$ 106.81||-0.07%||$ 819.5 billion|
|2||Amazon||$ 1,640.00||+ 0.12%||$ 805.6 billion|
|3||Apple||$ 170.18||-0.42%||$ 802.4 billion|
|4||Alphabet||$ 1,120.16||-0.11%||$ 708.6 billion|
As we can see, only Amazon closed the day on the positive. We’ll see how things get through the week.

With the fall of $ AMZN and the rise of $ AAPL, companies switched positions today:

|3||Amazon||$ 1,622.65||-1.06%||$ 797.1 billion|
|4||Alphabet||$ 1,121.67||+ 0.13%||$ 781.6 billion|
We’ll see what tomorrow’s roller coaster will look like.
