As one of the world’s largest companies, Microsoft’s market value has grown dramatically in the past year. Moreover, this growth may continue. Morgan Stanley released a report saying that Microsoft faces multiple favorable factors, all of which have established a "one trillion trillion dollar and higher market value framework." According to the last Wednesday's closing price, Microsoft’s market value was US$746.4 billion, becoming the fourth-highest listed company in the US, lagging behind Apple’s $924.9 billion, Amazon’s $770.2 billion, and Google’s parent’s Alphabet’s $752.1 billion. However, Morgan Stanley believes that Microsoft will achieve this milestone within a year, especially if the Azure cloud computing sector as a catalyst.
