No, Microsoft started making gobs of profit by the late 80s when everyone was buying DOS licenses, then Windows, then Office, then Windows Server. Amazon is the only megacap stock that makes almost no profit, because its investors continue to assume that "someday" they'll start making tons of profit sufficient to support their elevated stock price.
