Apple Stock’s New Price

The Apple stock split is meant to make the stock more affordable to a broader population of investors. Apple shares will be priced around $150 on August 31, 2020 at the pre-market. This will definitely appeal to the millennial generation, as they prefer to go for stocks on the lower end of the price spectrum. Because of this, you can expect Apple shares to rise quite a bit as there will be more buyers.

One other thing to consider is that they are rumored to release another line of iPhones and decrease the price of their older line. This should also drive the stock price a bit higher.

Risks With Apple Stock Split

However, this is all on the basis that the stock market won’t experience any push back from outside sources. But, even if there is some push back from outside sources, you shouldn’t be worried in the long run. Apple is showing no signs of losing market share anytime soon.

You should only be worried if your considering short-term options. That might make outside sources a lot more relevant to your case. But stocks are generally stable and reflect company success a lot more.

This also comes shortly after Apple became the first US traded company to be valued at more than $2 trillion. This could also put them closer to a $3 trillion valuation if the stock split goes as planned.
