Microsoft tops Apple to become most valuable company in U.S.

Recommended Posts



Microsoft is the most valuable publicly traded U.S. company, surpassing Apple for the title.

Microsoft passed Apple in market cap again during intraday trading Friday, after jockeying for the top spot for most of the week. Microsoft surpassed Apple for seconds or minutes at a time all week, but Apple consistently beat out Microsoft in market valuation at market close.

At Friday's close, Microsoft held an implied market valuation of $851.2 billion, based on an outstanding share count of 7,676,218,736 shares as of Oct. 19, according to the company's most recent SEC filing. Apple's market valuation, based on an outstanding share count of 4,745,398,000 shares as of October 26, 2018, lagged just behind at $847.4 billion.

If Apple used pretty much anything other than objective C and didn’t force developers to funnel everything through Xcode  their market cap would be twice as big :p  C# and Visual Studio are MS’s biggest assets

Also typescript, vs code, azure, etc...


also so I agree on Xcode suckage.
