META Price Historical Performance

Here are the most significant movements in META stock price:

Facebook, Inc.’s IPO was held on the 18th of May, 2012 at $38 per share. The event was highly anticipated and marked one of the largest technology IPOs in history.

After its IPO, Facebook's stock experienced some volatility but generally traded below its IPO price for the first few months. However, it gradually gained momentum.

Over the years, the market experienced steady growth as the company continued to increase its user base and advertising revenue. It benefited from the shift in advertising spending on digital platforms.

Facebook made several notable acquisitions during this period, including Instagram in 2012 and WhatsApp in 2014. These acquisitions contributed to the company's growth and the appreciation of the FB stock price.

Despite the price correction at the end of 2018, the solid uptrend continued. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic led to increased usage of social media platforms, including Facebook, as people turned to online communication and entertainment during lockdowns. This supported the company's strong performance.

In October 2021, Facebook, Inc. officially changed its name to META Platforms Inc. to reflect its focus on the development of the metaverse, augmented reality, and virtual reality technologies.

From September 2021 to October 2022, META suffered a dramatic decline, its price dropped four times. However, later, the price managed to recover.

Competition from other social media platforms and technology companies can affect the stock price. Investors closely monitor how the company competes and innovates.
