With the remote-work and virtual-learning trends accelerating during the pandemic, demand for Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) products like the iPhone, Mac, AirPods, and iPads has surged. Apple's market value now stands at a stunning $2.8 trillion and recently topped $3 trillion for a brief time. Here are two major catalysts that are likely to drive Apple's share price to new all-time highs in the coming year.
It's not all that hard for most investors to figure out which stocks are apt to be big winners within the next year or so. Too many growth stocks are lifted by their compelling stories instead of by their fiscal results, but those bullish stories eventually fizzle out. A long-term winner has to have long-term staying power.
CES 2022 was a whirlwind of new tech. Here's everything you need to know about this year's show.
This week, we're talking about what I'm sure could be one of Apple's biggest scandals of the decade thus far: the itty bitty AirTag. AirTags are a very useful product from Apple that pretty much function exactly as advertised. There's been a fair bit of controversy lately around how Apple rolled these out and how even though these are great devices to keep track of your keys, they can also easily be abused to stalk someone.
Dogecoin (DOGE) was the sixth most searched-for news term in the U.S. this year, according to Google. The only other crypto to make it into the top 10 was Ethereum, which took 10th place. Dogecoin's popularity isn't so surprising when you think of the rags-to-riches story behind the coin.

Another virtual year at CES 2022 is in the bag for TechCrunch, and even though we attended the event remotely, one thing in the vehicle space was made abundantly clear: Your car is about so much more than mobility. Your car — at least in the eyes of automakers and tech companies — is a third space, a place where you can work or lounge or watch TV. The big themes this year focused on services and experiences that drivers and passengers can have inside vehicles, the advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving features that handle some of the drudgery of driving so you can have those experiences, and the compute power needed to deliver it all.
