Microsoft Or Amazon: Which Company Will Reach $2 Trillion Valuation First?


NASDAQ: MSFT | Microsoft Corporation News, Ratings, and Charts

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the pace of digitization worldwide. While major tech stocks climbed to price levels beyond their expectations last year, tech-giant Apple (AAPL) blew the doors off and hit $2 trillion in market value. The two giants trailing just behind AAPL — Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) and (AMZN) — continue to dominate the tech space and are currently commanding $1.6 trillion-plus valuations. Let’s find out which of these might hit the $2 trillion mark next.

The technology sector sparked an extraordinary rally during the pandemic and ruled the stock market in 2020. The health crisis drove unprecedented demand for connectivity, remote financial transactions, collaborations, e-commerce, and communication-related services. Consequently, the tech leader Apple Inc. (AAPL) easily topped the $2 trillion-mark in August 2020 to become the first American company to cross the impressive valuation level.

The robust demand for tech-based solutions has also benefited other trillion-dollar heavyweights like Microsoft Corporation (MSFT - Get Rating) and (AMZN - Get Rating), which  currently boast market capitalizations of approximately$1.65 trillion and $1.61 trillion, respectively.

Both stocks have generated significant returns over the past three years. While MSFT returned 157.8% over this period, AMZN gained 161.9%. In terms of past year performance, AMZN is a clear winner with 71.7% gains  versus MSFT’s 38.8%. But which of these stocks will reach a $2 trillion market valuation first? Let us find out.
