MSFT Stock: Why Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Could Become A Trillion Dollar Company

  • Microsoft is ready to go from scalable quantum computing hardware and software research to engineering.
  • The company is assembling an all-stars team of leaders in the emerging quantum computing sector, with an eye on cloud applications.
  • According to Bill Gates, within 6-10 years cloud computing will offer super-computation by using quantum.

One year ago, Amigobulls covered about the research arm of Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT), Microsoft Research, as a top-class research organization that, among other pursuits, is exploring quantum computing.

Quantum computers, which process information encoded in quantum bits - qubits - that can be in a quantum superposition of zero and one states, could process information much faster than today's computers by exploiting subtle quantum phenomena such as quantum entanglement. Here's why Microsoft stock may make a quantum jump in the long term due to its big bet on scalable quantum computers.

The theoretical peak performance of quantum computers increases very fast with the number of qubits - which justifies the interest of tech giants and funding agencies - but so does the engineering challenge of building practical, operational, high-performance quantum processors. Scalable quantum computing systems, where the number of processing qubits can be increased without running into insurmountable difficulties, are the Holy Grail of quantum computing.

Now, Microsoft is making a strong bet that it is possible to create a scalable quantum computer.

"I think we’re at an inflection point in which we are ready to go from research to engineering," said Microsoft executive Todd Holmdahl, corporate VP of Microsoft’s quantum program. Holmdahl, who previously played a key role in the development of the Xbox, Kinect and HoloLens, will lead the scientific and...
