Amazon now second most valuable company 

Amazon.com became the second most valuable publicly listed U.S. company, surpassing Google parent Alphabet Inc for the first time.

Amazon the e-commerce giant’s shares rose up to  2.69 percent at $1,586.51, for a market capitalisation lifting stock market value to $768 billion. While Alphabet lost 0.39 percent, dropping its stock market value to $762 billion.

Amazon’s stock has surged 81 percent over the past year, and which has increased their revenue growth as most people’s shopping has moved online and businesses has shifted their computing operations to the cloud, where Amazon Web Services leads the market.

Amazon has knocked down Microsoft Corp dropping it down to No. 3 U.S. Company by market capitalisation. Apple  is the world’s most valuable publicly listed company, with a market capitalisation of $889 billion. Apple’s market cap would reach $1 trillion around a month later if its stock price continued to rise at the 25 percent pace as seen over the past year.

Meanwhile, Facebook’s weekend data crisis has dropped the social network’s market value which is far below the expected valued.  Facebook, now the seventh most valuable company, has lost more than 9 percent of its market capitalisation in the past two days after revelations on Friday and over the weekend how Cambridge Analytica had misused data tied to 50 million Facebook users.

Investors have been piling into Amazon,in high anticipation that the company’s growth will be very profitable, and  cloud computing business will provide the cash needed for investments in original content, physical stores and continuing to build data centres and warehouses.

Amazon’s stock market gains are not a reliable predictor of future performance, or growth in its shares in recent years but it has shown exceptional increment by most standards. But if Amazon’s stock keeping growing on the trajectory seen over the past year, its market capitalisation would hit $1 trillion in late August.
