Microsoft is in third place to become first trillion dollar company 

According to Business Insider, at the end of yesterday’s regular trading session, Microsoft had a market cap of $753 billion, while Alphabet ended the day at $739 billion.

This trading has now pushed Alphabet to the number four spot, with Apple at Number 1 and Amazon at the Number 2 spot. These four tech giants are in the race to become “the first US company ever to land a dizzying trillion dollar market cap.”

Over the years Alphabet and Microsoft have repeatedly switched places in market cap ranks. But since 2015, after Google restructured into the Alphabet umbrella company, Alphabet has enjoyed a comfortable lead, according to CNBC.
