Microsoft to be the first tech company to achieve $1 trillion market value

By : |December 28, 2016 0

Leaving behind major tech companies such as Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon the Redmond-based Microsoft is predicted to be the first tech company to achieve a market value of $1 trillion.

Following LinkedIn’s acquisition, Microsoft will achieve the threshold by leveraging, “LinkedIn to become a leader in social media and the emerging crowdfunding industry,” according to Analyst Michael Markowski of

Markowski predicts that online crowdfunding will be the next technological revolution, on par with the creation of the internet, email, social media, smartphones and apps.

Markowski said, “Microsoft, with its ownership of LinkedIn, is extremely well positioned to be a major player. It has a monopoly on the business social media niche or community.”

He further added, “The acquisition positions Microsoft to be a leader in the emerging Social Investing Community (SIC) industry, which is the key to online equity crowdfunding becoming ubiquitous. The SIC industry is in its infancy. However, my prediction is that by 2025, it will rank in size and scope right along with the digital search and social media industries.”

This week’s Monday morning saw these big tech companies with the following market caps:

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

This year’s rulings from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission allowed companies directly advertise to the public. This process allows those who aren’t accredited investors to participate in more types of investments.

Microsoft, which currently holds the third place in the market value chart will be able to take advantage of this trend and take the top position.

Markowski said, “The public has an insatiable appetite for making small bets and purchasing lottery tickets, etc., that provide the chance to make a big profit. The millennials will be a good example. Many will want to routinely invest $100 or even less into high-risk ventures that could produce returns of 10X to 100X.”

Previously, Apple was expected to cross the threshold. However, due to the less-than-expected performance from the company, the sales figures has been going down since April 2015. In turn, allowing Microsoft to take the lead with its product like Azure and Surface lineup.
