At the beginning of the month, Apple assumed the second position among the most valuable companies in the world (after a long time in the third), behind only Microsoft. Yesterday, she briefly passed (during the trading session) the company led by Satya Nadella, but ended up closing the day in the same position she was in. Today, the game has turned.
Apple shares ended the day at $ 191.05, down 2.07%. Microsoft’s shares, however, fell 2.64% and closed the day at $ 117.05. With this scenario, Apple today is worth $ 900.9 billion while Microsoft is valued at $ 898 billion – that’s right, a paltry difference in the case of two giants.
Amazon continues to occupy the third position, worth US $ 866.9 billion, while Alphabet closes the Top 4 with an estimated market value of US $ 839.8 billion.
Will the Apple special event, which will take place next Monday (3/25), give new fuel to $ AAPL to the point that the company resumes the post with a certain slack? We’ll see!
Update, for Rafael Fischmann Mar 25, 2019 at 19:13
As Apple was very little ahead of Microsoft, on Friday, today just a little variation was enough for the situation to reverse again. And that’s what happened.
Microsoft [$MSFT] rose 0.52% and closed the day quoted at US $ 117.66, worth $ 902.7 billion. Apple [$AAPL] fell -1.21% and is now quoted at US $ 188.74, with an estimated market value of $ 890 billion.
