Apple’s Stock Market Value Falls Below $2 Trillion
Giant Tech Apple has been having a difficult time in the stock market; on Tuesday, the value of the company’s stock dropped precipitously, pushing its entire market value below $2 trillion. Since 2021, this has only occurred once.
Apple set a milestone just last year when its market value surpassed $3 trillion.
Exane BNP Paribas analyst Jerome Ramel downgraded Apple shares from “outperforming” to “neutral,” which is one of the reasons why Apple share prices fell by around 3.7 percent on Tuesday. With this decline, Apple’s market worth is now $1.99 trillion.
The “global recession” is one of the deeper, more significant factors contributing to Apple’s share fall, which is having an impact on both the firm and its customers. Economic analysts think that a slow global economy, increasing inflation, and a decreasing product supply may be harming consumer demand for Apple products, which may ultimately harm the company.
Apple reportedly expects a decline in demand for its products. According to Nikkei, Apple has instructed vendors to produce fewer parts for its computers, watches, and headphones.
The list of the most valuable corporations still has Apple in first place despite its unexpected price drops. It is not too far behind Microsoft, a US computer company with a $1.785 trillion market cap.
Investors are concerned due to the decline in the value of Apple stock and the slowing global economy. According to Kim Forrest of Bokeh Capital Partners, “Apple tends to lean to the high-end consumer device buyer, but even that demographic might be being influenced by the high price of everything.”
