Apple’s market value surpasses Microsoft

Apple’s market value surpasses Microsoft

Apple has surpassed Microsoft to become the world’s most valuable company once again. This shift reflects a positive investor outlook on Apple’s growth and leadership in artificial intelligence.

The milestone was achieved following a strong rally, marking Apple’s most significant three-day increase since August 2020. Apple closed with a market capitalisation of $3.285 trillion, exceeding Microsoft’s $3.282 trillion. This marks the first time since January, that Apple has held a higher market value than Microsoft, indicating a reshuffling among Wall Street’s top stocks.

Earlier in the week, Apple ranked third, trailing Nvidia Corp. Apple’s stock rose by 0.6% on Thursday, marking the third consecutive positive session and the largest one-day percentage gain since November 2022 on Tuesday. The three-day surge of approximately 11% added a remarkable $323.9 billion to Apple’s market capitalisation, surpassing many components of the S&P 500 Index. Microsoft saw a 0.1% increase on Thursday. The driving force behind Apple’s gains was its AI-focused presentation (Apple Intelligence) at the Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday. This presentation raised expectations that consumers would be willing to invest in the upcoming iPhones, sparking optimism for a much-anticipated growth rebound.
