🗞️ News 

Google Is Officially A $2 Trillion Company

Google's parent company, Alphabet, has officially surpassed the $2 trillion market cap threshold, a milestone achieved after briefly touching $2 trillion in November 2021. Despite facing challenges from generative AI and regulation, Google's Q1 2024 earnings report shows a 15% increase in revenue and 14% increase in profit year over year. Investors are optimistic as Google solidifies its position as the fourth most valuable public company globally, showcasing resilience amidst industry shifts.

Apple Cuts Vision Pro Production

Apple is reportedly cutting its Vision Pro headset shipment forecast for the rest of the year due to cooling demand. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo indicates that Apple now expects to sell only around 400,000 to 450,000 units in 2024, significantly lower than the market consensus of 700,000 to 800,000. This drop in demand for the $3,500 Vision Pro has led Apple to adjust its headset roadmap, potentially delaying a lower-cost mixed-reality headset beyond 2025.

Meta Loses $200 Billion In Value

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg's earnings call emphasis on long-term AI and metaverse investments led to a 19% drop in shares, wiping out over $200 billion in market cap. Despite exceeding profit and revenue expectations, investors reacted negatively. Zuckerberg acknowledged the volatility, highlighting past monetization challenges.

Meta's focus on AI, mixed reality headsets, and AR glasses aim to convert investments into ad revenue, with a significant emphasis on future growth strategies. The company's Reality Labs unit continues to incur losses, with a strategic shift towards AI investments projected to drive future profitability.

That’s it for now!
