Microsoft briefly dethrones Apple as the most valuable U.S. company (AAPL, MSFT)

Microsoft has continued to face intense pressure from Apple, which reached a record high of more than $1 trillion earlier this year.

Due to a dip in Apple's stocks as a result of U.S. president Donald Trump's statements regarding the Cupertino giant, Microsoft briefly overtook Apple to become the most valuable company in the world. While Microsoft dominated Apple during the 80s and 90s, Steve Jobs finally one-upped Bill Gates with the release of the iPod and then the iPhone in the mid-2000s.

Now Apple became the first ever trillion d=dollar company ever known to the technological history of mankind.

Microsoft had rallied by more than 3 percent during Monday's official trading session, when the market notched broad gains.

Microsoft has managed to hold up better than other high-flying tech names after its first-quarter results showed that it continues to follow through on the vision of CEO Satya Nadella, who when he took over in 2014 said he wanted to focus on its subscription-based businesses and the cloud.

While Apple analysts see it transitioning to a business model based more on services than unit sales, there could be more pain ahead for the stock, which could dethrone it from the number-one spot in a more decisive fashion. Amazon's shares have also been swooning. its market cap is now around $US768 billion. That would put it below both Amazon.com, now valued about US$770 billion, and Google-parent Alphabet Inc., which has a market cap of about US$730 billion.
