Apple’s seemingly large strangehold on valuation as it surpassed $2 Trillion seemed a sure thing for a while. This week, Microsoft took over for a while as Apple fell below Microsoft by a little, and Microsoft has been climbing. We are sure to see these two juggernauts challenging each other for a while, as Apple’s Watch issues hurt, and Microsoft’s ventures with AI continues to battle for dominance. This will likely continue for a while, unless the trends reverse. For the most part, it won’t affect the rest of us, as both companies are strong and will continue to grant us benefits as they chase new ideas in both of their respective strength areas.
Apple recently slipped from the number one spot as the world’s most-valuable company Thursday as its share price continues to slide.
