Shares of Microsoft are up 13% year-to-date and up 8% over the past three months.
It’s a pretty big run for Microsoft, which traditionally struggles to make significant gains like Google or Apple. It’s outperformed Apple’s year-to-date (up 4.7%) and three-month (up 4.5%) performances. (It’s still way behind Apple in year-over-year performance, though — Apple is up 25.7% year-over-year while Microsoft is only up 3.6%.)
