MSFT: In the Race for World’s Most Valuable Firm

(RTTNews) – Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) has unseated Apple Inc. (AAPL) to rank as the world’s most valuable listed company. The software giant ended Friday with a market value of more than $851 billion compared with Apple’s $847 billion. Both companies remain well below the $1 trillion milestone that Apple and Amazon hit earlier this year.

On Friday, Microsoft shares gained more than 0.6% to close at $110.89, while Apple shares finished at $178.58, down about 0.54%. Apple’s shares have fallen almost 25% since October amid concerns about slowing smart phone demand and the possibility of additional US tariffs on Chinese-made goods. Microsoft’s ascension to the most valuable company would be its first return to the top spot since 2002. Apple has held the No. 1 spot as most valuable company since 2012, when it unseated Exxon.

In terms of Elliott Waves, MSFT has reached 161.8 Fibonacci extension of the initially rally from all time low to 2000 peak which means it’s a wave 3 in progress minimum target for which was the 161.8% Fibonacci extension at 112.23 and has been met already. However, nothing yet has confirmed that wave 3 has completed so while above 99.35 low, stock should see further strength toward 120.32 – 126.86 area which is the inverse 123.6 – 161.8 Fibonacci extension area of the drop from 116.18 high to 99.35 low. Above 126.86 would expose 135.23 to complete wave 3 of the grand super cycle which is the 200% Fibonacci extension of the initially rally from all time low to 2000 peak.
