American company Microsoft has tired the record of 2000

Capitalization of one of the world’s largest and most famous companies – the US high-tech corporation Microsoft has exceeded the mark of $ 600 billion.

The last time when the company pleased the shareholders was in early January 2000, i.е. more than 17 years ago. Experts have already started talking about the return of the golden era of Microsoft.

Yesterday, at the close of trading, the market estimated one share of the American giant at $ 77.91, which is 0.4% higher than the results of the previous trading session. Since the beginning of this year, the value of Microsoft’s shares has grown by 25.4%.

According to experts, the reason for such an impressive growth was the company’s success in the development of cloud services.

We recall that cloud services is a relatively new service offered to big business and medium-sized companies. Microsoft has been developing this area for only seven years. The essence of it is to transfer the computing power to the network, store information there and provide business with powerful analytical tools round-the-clock.

At the moment, Microsoft is a “bronze medalist” of the world capitalization championship.

Gold rightfully belongs to Apple Inc. (capitalization is 800 billion US dollars), silver – to the company Alphabet Inc. (capitalization is approximately 690 billion US dollars).
