Microsoft has achieved a remarkable milestone, surpassing all previous records with a market capitalization of $3.125 trillion. This outstanding achievement has positioned Microsoft as the leading company in terms of market value, surpassing the previous record set by Apple at $3.09 trillion in July.
Furthermore, Microsoft has now become the first U.S. company to close with a market capitalization greater than $3.1 trillion. These remarkable figures demonstrate the company’s unwavering dominance and success in the market.
Closing the week at $420.55 per share, Microsoft’s stock has experienced an impressive 60% surge over the past 12 months. The significant rise can largely be attributed to the growing enthusiasm surrounding Microsoft’s artificial intelligence software.

CEO Satya Nadella emphasized, “We’ve moved from merely discussing AI to actively applying AI on a large scale.” This strategic implementation of AI across all layers of Microsoft’s technology stack has not only attracted new customers but has also fueled significant benefits and productivity gains across various sectors.
Microsoft’s ascent to the pinnacle of the market capitalization charts is a testament to their ongoing commitment to innovation and relentless pursuit of excellence.
