Microsoft slips to the third from last year’s position at the top

IBM has become the world’s second most valuable technology company, overtaking Microsoft for the first time since 1996.

Big Blue’s rise to the second spot, behind Apple, was because of a combination of factors. Yesterday, as IBM’s market grew to $214bn, Microsoft’s fell to $213.2bn, according to Bloomberg. IBM has gained 22% this year, while Microsoft has dropped 8.8%, said the report.

IBM, which recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, has now become the fourth-largest company by market value. Among technology companies, IBM is behind Apple, the world’s most valuable company.

Last year, Apple overtook Microsoft in market value last year. Apple’s market capitalisation is now $362.1bn.

Earlier this year, IBM reported net earnings growth of 8% to $3.7bn. IBM has raised its full-year operating earnings per share expectations after reporting 12% surge in second-quarter revenues and 8% growth in net income.

In its Q2 2011 results, the 100-year-old company registered total revenues of $26.7bn, an increase of 12%. Net income reached $3.7bn, compared with $3.4bn in Q2 2010.
