December 02, 2018

Microsoft has surpassed Apple as the world’s most valuable publicly traded company.

Apple had been the world’s most prosperous firm since claiming the top spot from Exxon Mobil earlier this decade.

Microsoft surpassed Apple briefly a few times this week, but didn’t close on top until Friday, with a market value of 851 billion dollars to Apple’s 847 billion dollars.
