Apple’s Stock Down 20% Since Early April Amid Broader Market Losses
Apple’s stock opened at $146.85 today and continues to trend downwards, with shares currently trading below the $143 mark in today’s session. Apple’s stock price has declined approximately 20% since closing at $178.44 on April 4.
Apple has been financially successful during the COVID-19 pandemic, with the company recently setting a new March quarter revenue record of $97.3 billion. However, on an earnings call last month, Apple said supply constraints caused by COVID-related disruptions and industrywide silicon shortages were impacting the company’s ability to meet customer demand, resulting in lengthy shipping estimates for devices like the MacBook Pro.
