Microsoft Now Favored to Win “1st to Trillion” Sweepstakes

Emotional, Burning, Unlimited Tuned Laboratory

Could Microsoft be looking to leverage LinkedIn to become an equity crowdfunding powerhouse?

With its acquisition of LinkedIn, Microsoft (MSFT) has entered the sweepstakes to become the first digital company to get to a trillion-dollar market cap. Microsoft is the fourth contestant to enter the race and joins Alphabet (GOOG) (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN) and Facebook (FB). Even though Apple (AAPL) has the highest market cap at $618.3 billion, my prediction is that it will not be the first to a trillion-dollar market cap.
