Microsoft hits market value to $600 billion

First time in its history Microsoft hits market value of $600 billion

Yesterday, Microsoft closed the day with a market value of $600 billion, which is the very first time in the last 17 years the company has been able to perform quite that well. It took the company launching probably the best version of its OS in Windows 10 to stimulate investors interest back in the day, but with Nadella slashing expensive product categories and going after the lucrative cloud market, Microsoft's stock is looking quite appealing to some.

Overall, Microsoft's shares are up 25% for this financial period and pacing to be an investor's best return since 2013. At $77.91 a share, investors are seeing approximately a $30 increase since Microsoft announced Satya Nadella as its new CEO and replacement for steady stock guru and previous CEO Steve Ballmer.
