Facebook, Apple, Others Lose Big in Market Value

Stock - Investors King

The global financial market rout has plunged the value of the world’s largest technology companies by over $1 trillion in the last three trading days. This was after the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 0.25% last week, below the 0.75% projected by experts.

The Federal Reserve had attributed its decision to a series of global uncertainties due to the Russia-Ukraine war and extended COVID-19 restrictions in China, the world’s second-largest economy. These were a few of the uncertainties predicted by a global investment bank, Deutsche Bank to plunge the U.S and the rest of the world into a recession by 2023.

Concerns over projected recession have led to a broad-based selloff in risk assets across the world.

“When risk assets fall and fall fast enough, there’s no question they’re going to hurt growth,” said LaVorgna, who was chief economist for the National Economic Council under former President Donald Trump. “If anything, the relationship is even better when asset prices decline than when they go up.”

Apple Inc, the world’s most capitalised company shed $200 billion in the last three trading days.

While Microsoft lost $189 billion in market value. Tesla, Amazon, Alphabet, Nvidia and Meta (Facebook) lost $199 billion, $173 billion, $123 billion, $85 and $70 billion, respectively.

In only three trading sessions the “Stocks at large have sold off since the Federal Reserve raised its benchmark interest rate on Wednesday, but technology has endured more pain than other sectors of the economy.”
