Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
About Microsoft (MSFT)
Founded in April 1975 by childhood friends Bill Gates and Paul Allen, Microsoft saw an opportunity to develop software for the growing range of personal and business computers that were coming onto the market.
Starting with MS-DOS (Microsoft Disk Operating System), Microsoft signed a supply contract with IBM, and almost overnight became integral to business computing globally.
In March 1986, Microsoft listed on the NASDAQ (Microsoft Stock Ticker: MSFT) at $21.00 per share - turning thousands of employees into millionaires and the founders into billionaires.
Ever since, Microsoft has been at the forefront of business and consumer computing - with PCs, servers, cloud, internet, computer gaming, phones, and many consumer devices.
