Microsoft Becomes World’s Most Valuable Company Again

New Delhi: Microsoft has regained the title of the world’s most valuable public company just days after it was overtaken by one of its rivals.

Nvidia’s stock price dropped 3.4 per cent on Thursday, making Microsoft the most valuable tech company again in a few days after losing its crown. Both companies are still well above the 3 trillion mark. Nvidia was ahead since Tuesday which was the first time when the chip maker managed to reach the top rank.

Apple is still close behind and is trailing in the third position. All three companies have a market cap beyond $3 trillion.

On Thursday Nvidia’s stock price fell the most, but Microsoft and Apple’s stock prices also slid after major rallies over the past few weeks.

NVIDIA’s slip came despite the announcement that Elon Musk’s company, xAI, is building a supercomputer with thousands of Nvidia chips (H100 GPUs) to make its AI model better.

NVIDIA’s high-end chips are used for complicated AI tasks. Dell (DELL) and Super Micro (SMCI) are also helping in building this new supercomputer by providing parts for it. Stock prices of both Dell and Super Micro also witnessed a dip in share price on Thursday.
