It took 15 years. Last Friday, IBM edged out Microsoft on market cap for the first time since April 1996. Great news for IBM, a company that continues to survive the test of time.
Not so good for Microsoft who can’t blame the economy on its performance. Now two major rivals; Apple and IBM are now more valuable than Microsoft. However, Microsoft is significantly more profitable than IBM.
IBM $207.52 B
Microsoft $206.52 B
Apple $308 B
IBM Has Greater Market Value than Microsoft
