Update: It seems the same technology glitch also caused AAPL prices to seemingly crash early this morning, with Yahoo Finance, Google Finance and MacOS widgets all showing incorrect prices.
We’re used to seeing the price of AAPL stock fluctuating based on even the flimsiest rumor, but this is something else entirely. Due to a glitch related to the way that Nasdaq stocks are listed on several major financial sites, AAPL shares appeared to quadruple in value following the closing bell on Monday.
While Apple fared well, however, other tech companies were less fortunate. The price of Amazon and Microsoft stocks appeared to lose more than half their value, while Alphabet and eBay shares were stuck at $123.47.
