Microsoft reached its highest ranking ever on the Fortune 500, up five spots from last year, and churned out $39 billion in profits to boot. In Microsoft’s fiscal 2019, overall sales soared 14% year-over-year, to $125.8 billion. Last fall, the software titan won a coveted cloud-computing contract with the Pentagon worth up to $10 billion, a deal that would help solidify Microsoft’s reputation as a leading cloud vendor. (That deal is on hold and under review, however, after rival bidder Amazon raised questions about the bidding process.) So far in 2020, a surge in remote working as a result of the coronavirus pandemic has led to even greater demand for the company’s Azure cloud service and its Office 365 workplace apps. Microsoft’s shares hit an all-time high in February at nearly $189, underscoring Wall Street’s enthusiasm for the company's evolution under CEO Satya Nadella.
