    Microsoft (MSFT) Back on Top — Largest Companies in the S&P 500
    Nov 28, 2018

    As of early afternoon trading today, Microsoft (MSFT) has moved back into the lead. Below is a table showing the 35 largest companies in the S&P 500.

    Microsoft (MSFT) sits at #1 with a market cap of $856.5 billion, followed closely by Apple (AAPL) at $850.6 billion. Amazon.com (AMZN) isn’t far behind in third place with a market cap of $804.1 billion, while Alphabet (GOOGL) ranks fourth at $746.7 billion. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK/B) rounds out the top five at $531.4 billion.

    Earlier in the year, Facebook (FB) ranked in the top five with a market cap above $500 billion, but the company has lost 23.7% year-to-date at this point, leaving it in 7th place behind Johnson & Johnson (JNJ).

    JP Morgan (JPM), Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Walmart (WMT) rank 8th through 10th.

    One name conspicuously absent from the list of largest companies is General Electric (GE). At a share price of just $7.60, GE’s market cap has fallen all the way down to $66 billion. As recently as October 8th, the stock had a market cap of $120 billion, but a 44% decline since then has wiped out nearly half of its value. Pretty remarkable.

    (RTTNews) — Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) has unseated Apple Inc. (AAPL) to rank as the world’s most valuable listed company. The software giant ended Friday with a market value of more than $851 billion compared with Apple’s $847 billion. Both companies remain well below the $1 trillion milestone that Apple and Amazon hit earlier this year.

    On Friday, Microsoft shares gained more than 0.6% to close at $110.89, while Apple shares finished at $178.58, down about 0.54%. Apple’s shares have fallen almost 25% since October amid concerns about slowing smart phone demand and the possibility of additional US tariffs on Chinese-made goods. Microsoft’s ascension to the most valuable company would be its first return to the top spot since 2002. Apple has held the №1 spot as most valuable company since 2012, when it unseated Exxon.

    In terms of Elliott Waves, MSFT has reached 161.8 Fibonacci extension of the initially rally from all time low to 2000 peak which means it’s a wave 3 in progress minimum target for which was the 161.8% Fibonacci extension at 112.23 and has been met already. However, nothing yet has confirmed that wave 3 has completed so while above 99.35 low, stock should see further strength toward 120.32–126.86 area which is the inverse 123.6–161.8 Fibonacci extension area of the drop from 116.18 high to 99.35 low. Above 126.86 would expose 135.23 to complete wave 3 of the grand super cycle which is the 200% Fibonacci extension of the initially rally from all time low to 2000 peak.

    MSFT Weekly Elliott Wave Analysis
    MSFT Daily Analysis — Elliott Wave View
    Daily chart analysis suggests stock has completed a double three Elliott wave structure down from 116.18 to 99.35 and strong reaction higher suggests wave (IV) pull back has completed at 99.35. Up from there, wave I is closed to completion and after that, we should see a pull back in wave II to correct the rally from 99.34 low before we see further extension to the upside in red wave III of blue wave (V).

    MSFT Daily Analysis — Alternate View
    Alternate view suggests that impulsive rally from 99.35 low is part of an expanded FLAT Elliott wave correction which started on 10/30/2018 (100.11) low and once completed, it would result in another drop below 99.35 low to complete wave (IV) as double correction before MSFT would have another chance to make new high above 116.18 to complete wave ((III)) grand super cycle.
