Can You Guess Which Tech Company Might Be the First to Reach the Trillion-Dollar Market Value?

Although the figures point to Apple, the Redmond company — Microsoft— could become the first technology giant to reach a market value of $1 trillion, or so thinks a notable analyst.

Despite the fact that the Microsoft’s market value currently trails both Apple and Alphabet, analyst Michael Markowski of Equities.com believes that Microsoft’s $26.2 billion acquisition of LinkedIn could help them reach the $1 trillion milestone.
Here are the market caps of the top 5 tech companies via GeekWire

  • Apple: $622.6B
  • Alphabet: $549.7B
  • Microsoft: $489.3B
  • Amazon: $358.7B
  • Facebook: $337.6B

Markowski notes that unlike a hardware company, a digital company like Microsoft has a more scalable business model that could reach more consumers, better cash flow, and higher margins. In other words, LinkedIn not only gives Microsoft a leg in the business social media sphere, it also puts the company in a unique position to leverage the burgeoning crowdfunding market.

    … WELL, ITS BASES ON PREDICTION. BUT SINCERELY, APPLE HAS FAR LESS PRESENCE AROUND THE GLOBE COMPARED TO ALPHABET , MICROSOFT AND OTHERS. NONETHELESS, LOOKING AT HOW SHEEPISH FOLLOWERS OF crAPPLE ARE, APPLE MAY GET THERE FIRST…
