Microsoft Uniquely Away the $ 1 trillion barrier Salam Sarhan

LONDON, The dramatic reversal reveals the market value of technology giants. The impact of trade wars on these companies has varied, with some of them falling into the crossfire, while other sales remain out of control.

Software production and Microsoft's cloud services revolution avoided most of the consequences of the commercial war and pushed the company's market value last weekend to the $ 1 trillion barrier.

Other technology companies, such as Apple and those that trade in commodities like Amazon, have found themselves trapped by the effects of the commercial war, which has plunged them into the throes of a crisis between Washington and Beijing.

Microsoft's gains were around 10 percent in the last five trading days, reaching $ 1.007 trillion yesterday, more than $ 120 billion more than its nearest rival, Amazon and Apple, respectively. Investors' optimism about Microsoft's cloud services business was one of the main reasons for the rise in its shares, led by Chief Executive Satya Nadila to bet on these activities.

But in a previous interview with Bloomberg, Nadila did not have the privilege of crossing the $ 1 trillion barrier, saying it was "meaningless" and he was surprised that someone was celebrating market value. Microsoft was not optimistic when Nadila took over as chief executive in February 2014 when Microsoft suffered the consequences of a failed bet on the smartphone boom.

It was also failing to compete with the Google search engine empire, while it was not interested in the social networking race, and the future value of Windows and Office was also ambiguous. But the company's performance rebounded strongly when Nadela focused exclusively on cloud computing services and founded Microsoft Azure to be a serious competitor to Amazon Web Services.

Microsoft quickly took up 17 percent of the global cloud infrastructure market in 2018, according to research firm Canlease, but still ranks behind Amazon Web Services, which still accounts for 32 percent.

Most of Microsoft's technology rivals are in serious trouble because of internal problems and the consequences of commercial wars, as well as prosecution by regulators. The parent company of Google and Facebook is facing antitrust reviews from US agencies and renewed concerns about trade disputes that have a major impact on many of its global markets.

The picture of Microsoft's rocket surge is evident when compared to the troubles and crises of Apple, which was the first company to break through the $ 1 trillion barrier in September last year. Apple's market value on Oct. 3 was $ 1.1 trillion, but it fell for two months to lose more than $ 300 billion due to the widening trade war with China and the decline in sales of iPhone phones, on which the company's revenue is heavily dependent.

The company is still besieged at the crossroads of trade war between the United States and China, with its absolute dependence on the assembly of all its equipment in China, and subjecting its products to American fees, which have greatly increased their product prices. This led to the collapse of sales of smart phones, which some estimates indicate a 30 percent contraction in the first quarter of this year compared to a year ago.
