The capitalization of the largest US IT companies in 2022 fell sharply

The outgoing 2022 can hardly be called a good year for US IT giants. The capitalization of a number of world-famous American corporations simply collapsed this year. At the same time, their future prospects do not yet look bright.


According to current exchange indicators, Meta (recognized as extremist in the Russian Federation*) became the “record holder” for the depreciation of its shares this year, losing as much as 65% of the total value.

IT giant Google also suffered significant losses. The capitalization of the corporation "sank" by 38%.

Apple turned out to be the most “stress-resistant”, the exchange value of which decreased by 26%. But if such figures were called five years ago, then hardly anyone could believe in them.

The main factor that influenced the fall in the capitalization of the above-mentioned companies is called the exit from the pandemic. After all, it was during the total restrictions that the products of IT giants were in great demand.

At the same time, the Washington Post writes that during the pandemic, these corporations showed a sharp increase, but they have improved their performance over the past decade from year to year, although not so rapidly. Now the company's management is forced to lay off employees in order to stay afloat.

It is worth noting that in addition to the removal of pandemic restrictions, the income of IT corporations was obviously affected by the growth of global inflation. The indicator of the well-being of citizens in many countries of the world has dropped significantly this year, which, naturally, has made buying new gadgets, subscriptions, software and games far from a priority for them.

In turn, Mark Zuckerberg's company was completely banned in Russia, losing a huge market. Thus, it is not surprising that Meta* suffered the maximum losses in 2022.

    Mark Zuckerberg's company was completely banned in Russia, having lost a huge market, yes, well! It is forbidden but with reservations and everyone uses it, a huge market is how much in percentage terms? 3-5%? Europe is a huge market, the US is a huge market, South America is a huge market.

    Yes, yes, this is just a good reminder to those who like to say with a smart look that they have, over the hill, the capitalization of some company is greater than that of someone else, for example, some plant, or even an entire industry, is estimated by us, BY THEIR STANDARDS, much cheaper...
    So water, a plant, an industry, such a thing, MATERIAL, completely retains its REAL VALUE, even in a crisis, unlike exaggerated, ephemeral indicators, exaggerated firms that do not have material content !!!
    Of course, everything is much more complicated, but, a BOTTLE, this is a thing, and computer games ... in general, it's understandable. Everything in the world is relative...

      When I see how the "inflated price" of shares is flying down, I remember the eternal: "I'm not a slacker - we are partners."

        So the technology of deception has been worked out, BUT, when a crisis comes, everything is quickly blown away and flies into a container of container, quickly, with a whistle!
        I listened / read the analysis of knowledgeable specialists, about local, exchange affairs and understood the most important thing ... all our MMMs and others, that's right, child's play compared to how they do things on the exchanges !!!
        I already understood that a great deception was going on there, but when I realized how things were done there, I was very surprised, is it really possible, can people be so stupid ... and then I remembered
        As long as the greedy around
        Good luck we will not lose sight of.
        What a blue sky
        We are not supporters of robbery:
        You don't need a knife for greedy
        Show him a penny
        And do with it what you want!

    While Asians, especially China, are still crazy about buying iPhones, Apple is still doing well.
