Microsoft's market value is expected to reach 1 trillion US dollars within one year
As one of the world’s largest companies, Microsoft’s market value has grown dramatically in the past year. Moreover, this growth may continue. Morgan Stanley released a report saying that Microsoft faces multiple favorable factors, all of which have established a "one trillion trillion dollar and higher market value framework." According to the last Wednesday's closing price, Microsoft’s market value was US$746.4 billion, becoming the fourth-highest listed company in the US, lagging behind Apple’s $924.9 billion, Amazon’s $770.2 billion, and Google’s parent’s Alphabet’s $752.1 billion. However, Morgan Stanley believes that Microsoft will achieve this milestone within a year, especially if the Azure cloud computing sector as a catalyst.
