And the dispute for the title of most valuable company in the world remains intense. After eight years at the top of the pyramid, Apple ($ AAPL) saw its former archrival, the Microsoft ($ MSFT), take your post. A day later, however, Apple took over again and remained so for another day – meanwhile, Microsoft and Amazon ($ AMZN) swapped positions, fighting for second and third places.
Today, it didn’t work for Apple. With a drop of 1.1%, its shares were worth US $ 174.72, taking its market value to $ 829.11 billion; Meanwhile, Microsoft’s shares rose 0.62%, now worth $ 109.19. With that, the market cap hers jumped to $ 838.16 billion.
But it wasn’t just Microsoft that passed Apple, no. The stage is bad and Amazon has also surpassed Apple: with the increase of 1.85%, her shares closed the day worth US $ 1,699.19 and its market value is at $ 830.85 billion – that’s right, just $ 1.74 billion ahead.
|1||Microsoft||$ 109.19||+ 0.62%||$ 838.16 billion|
|2||Amazon||$ 1,699.19||+ 1.85%||$ 830.85 billion|
|3||Apple||$ 174.72||-1.1%||$ 829.11 billion|
If we compare the current numbers with those of two days ago, we see that they are all losing a lot of market value: the three giants were worth $ 860.42 billion ($ MSFT), $ 866.62 billion ($ AMZN) and $ 877, 04 billion ($ AAPL). Amazing.
We’ll see what the next chapters of this dispute will look like. Any guesses?

On a new NASDAQ trading day, a further significant drop in $ AAPL. Only today, both $ MSFT and $ AMZN fell more than she – Microsoft kept the 1st place, but Apple stole 2nd from Amazon.
So we are:
|1||Microsoft||$ 104.82||-4.00%||$ 804.6 billion|
|2||Apple||$ 168.49||-3.57%||$ 799.6 billion|
|3||Amazon||$ 1,629.13||-4.12%||$ 796.6 billion|
After being worth $ 1.1 trillion, Apple has now dropped below $ 800 billion in market value. What a thing.
