The biggest tech companies in the world have all started small, growing from their humble beginnings to finally bloom into the multi-billion brands that we now know today – and the investors who believed in their stocks’ potential are finally reaping the fruits of their labor. For investment firms like LOM Financial, these companies can play a massive role in anyone’s portfolio.
These are the leading tech companies that you should have invested in decades ago that are now leading the trillion-dollar market cap race today.
People who have invested in Apple Inc. stocks years ago would have probably raked in over seven times the value of their initial investment – and it’s still leading the rally among the world’s largest tech stocks this year. The company has become the first US company to breach the $1 trillion mark in market capitalization. This follows a sudden surge in its stock after reporting strong Q3 earnings that saw the tech giant surpass both its own projections and analysts’ estimates.
Currently holding a total of $866 billion in market capitalization, Amazon (AMZN) is a constant in the top tech stocks ranking. For starters, the company is already a leader in innovations of cloud-computing infrastructure, dominating global market shares for years.
The company is not only a leader in the tech industry but it also plans to infiltrate other markets and industries, disrupting by undercutting competitor prices.
Microsoft and Google
Currently valued with a market capitalization of $815 billion, Microsoft (MSFT) is included in the world’s list of the most valuable tech companies in the world, while its all-time rival, Google’s (GOOGL) parent company, Alphabet is presently valued with a market cap of over $840 billion.
The two tech giants’ shifting positions over the years have been carefully observed by experts and investors, with Microsoft making headlines when it surpassed Google’s market value in May of 2018.
