Microsoft reclaims world’s most valuable company position from Nvidia

American multinational corporation and technology company Microsoft has reclaimed the top position as the world’s most valuable company from artificial intelligence chip maker Nvidia. This is after Nvidia’s share price fell by 3.5 per cent on Thursday.

Nvidia’s shares fell to $130.78. This brought its value down to around $3.22 trillion. On the opposite extreme, Microsoft’s shares held steady at more than $3.3 trillion after closing at $445.70 which was down 0.14 per cent.

Nvidia had taken the top position after a share price rally that pushed its value to $3.34 trillion. Despite its slight fall, Nvidia still holds an incredible rally with its price having nearly doubled since the start of this year. Eight years ago, the stock was worth less than 1 per cent of its current price.
