AAPL Price Historical Performance

Here are the most significant swings in AAPL stock price:

Apple held an IPO on the 12th of December, 1980, at $22.00 per share. The first split took place on the 16th of June, 1987, on a 2-for-1 basis. Over the next two decades, the company underwent four splits:

The next split occurred on the 21st of June, 2000, on the same basis. By that time, AAPL cost around $90 per share. Within several days of the split, the price fell to $50.

On the 28th of February, 2005, the company decided to hold another 2-for-1 split when the stock value was around $90.

The company’s stocks then experienced significant growth. By the 9th of June, 2014, when Apple decided to hold another split, the stock price was near $650. This time, shareholders got seven shares for each share they owned. The stock price fell to $90 within days after the split.

AAPL continued to see steady growth in 2015. By the end of 2015, adjusted for the split, AAPL closed at approximately $105 per share. In the following years, AAPL mostly fluctuated within the $100-$200 range. By the end of 2019, AAPL closed at approximately $293 per share.

AAPL had a remarkable year in 2020. On the 31st of August 2020, the company split its stocks on a 4-for-1 basis. By that time, stocks traded around $500. The split reduced the stock price to $113 within a few days.

Major Factors That Affect AAPL Value

The AAPL stock price is influenced by a wide range of factors:

Apple's financial results depend heavily on the sales and performance of its products, particularly the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and wearable devices like the Apple Watch. Strong product sales can boost revenue and profitability.

The quarterly and yearly financial outcomes, covering metrics like revenue, earnings, and profit margins, directly influence the valuation of Apple’s stock in the short term. Therefore, price volatility rises ahead of and on the AAPL earnings release date.

AAPL premarket and after-market trading can have an effect on the stock price. Premarket and after-market trading sessions can be subject to significant spreads between bid and ask prices, and liquidity may be insufficient for large trades. As a result, trading during these sessions can carry additional risks.

Apple faces competition from other tech giants and smartphone manufacturers. Market share, pricing, and technological advancements in the industry can affect Apple's competitiveness.

Therefore, the introduction of new and innovative products or features can drive consumer interest and boost Apple's stocks.

Government regulations and antitrust scrutiny can affect Apple's operations. Legal and regulatory challenges can impact AAPL's value.

AAPL dividend payments and share buyback programmes can attract income-oriented investors and provide support to the stock's value.
