A selection of the most recent results from the CMS experiment will be presented. The results are based on the analysis of the proton-proton (pp) collision data delivered by the LHC in year 2016, at an energy of 13 TeV in the pp centre of mass system, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 40/fb. The LHC and CMS performance will be briefly described. The latest updated results on the standard model (SM) precision measurements for the scalar and top sectors will be first presented. It includes the new H scalar property measurements from the 4 lepton decay channel and the 3 sigma evidence for the ttH coupling, in the multi lepton final states. In the second part, the latest results on the searches for new physics beyond the SM will be presented, including searches for dark matter particles.
