After a solid uptrend in 2023, Microsoft (MSFT) could push even higher in 2024.

Since 2023 began, the tech giant rocketed from a low of about $220 to a recent high of $375.60. From here, it could test $500 in 2024, we believe.  All thanks to the artificial intelligence boom that’s just getting underway. 

Wedbush analyst Dan Ives just raised his price target to $450 for 2024, noting: “We believe the stock still has yet to price in what we view as the next wave of cloud and AI growth coming to the Redmond story [Redmond is the location of Microsoft Corporate Head Office] with FY24 with a strong competitive cloud edge vs. Amazon and Google,” as quoted by Barron’s.

After all, when it comes to AI, we’re just in the initial stages of wild growth.

In fact, according to Next Move Strategy Consulting, the AI market – currently valued at about $100 billion – could grow twenty-fold by 2030 to more than $2 trillion. 

All while AI massively disrupts everything about everything. 

On top of that, generative AI could add between $2.6 trillion and $4.4 trillion a year to the global economy. That’s according to a new McKinsey report, which also said it could have a significant impact across all industry sectors. 

All could drive tech giants, like MSFT to higher highs.
