By the end of trading today, IBM passed Microsoft in Market Capitalization. IBM is worth more than MSFT now. Stock prices go up and down, but I think this is telling. Microsoft is still technically worth more because their P/E is so low… but their P/E is about the lowest in the Tech Industry. Not a good sign.
On May, 26, 2010 Apple passed MSFT in Market Cap.
On April 29, 2011 Apple passed MSFT in profits.
Maybe stealing, bullying, and leveraging only works for so long. Maybe vision always, eventually wins.
