GOOGL Price Historical Performance

Here are the most significant movements in GOOGL stock price:

Google held an IPO on the 19th of August, 2004, at $85 per share. It was one of the most anticipated technology IPOs of its time. Following its IPO, Google's stock experienced significant growth, driven by its dominance in online search and advertising. It quickly became a technology giant and was known for its innovative products and services.

In August 2015, Google announced a major corporate restructuring, creating a new holding company called Alphabet Inc. Google became a subsidiary of Alphabet, and the company's stock ticker symbol changed from "GOOG" to "GOOGL" for Class A shares.

Google's stock underwent two significant stock splits. The first was a 2-for-1 split in April 2014, which doubled the number of outstanding shares but halved the share price. The second was a 1-for-1 split in July 2015 as part of the restructuring.

By the end of 2020, Alphabet Inc. had become one of the largest publicly traded companies globally, with a market capitalisation in the hundreds of billions of dollars.

The stock price was moving in a solid uptrend until the end of 2021. In 2022, the market moved almost constantly downwards but managed to recover in 2023. In the same year, the company held the third stock split on a 20-for-1 basis.
