10 Most Expensive Stocks In 2022: Amazon Is Off The List

Zinger Key Points
  • Near the top of the list is a 177-year-old Swedish chocolate company.
  • The list includes an American travel technology company that owns travel fare aggregators.

With Amazon.com, Inc’s AMZN 20:1 stock split in the rearview, the company no longer ranks as the fourth most-expensive stock in the world.

Shares closed on Friday with a value of $2,447 — and the markets opened Monday with shares priced at a mere $122.

Many exchanges now offer the ability to buy fractional shares based on a dollar amount rather than on a whole-share basis. This allows the average investor to participate in the trading of company stocks with six figure share prices.

Here's a list of the 10 most expensive stocks of 2022:

Berkshire Hathway Inc (NYSE: BRK-A
Stock price $468,385.20

Shares of the company headed by famed investor Warren Buffett remain the most expensive in the world, and the company itself ranks as the seventh-largest, with a market cap of over $687 billion.

When asked at the 1995 shareholder meeting if Buffett would ever consider splitting Class-A shares, he said, “We are almost certain we would get a shareholder base that would not have the level of sophistication and the synchronization of objectives with us that we have now. That is almost a cinch.”

A year later, in 1996, an effort was made to make Berkshire’s stock more inclusive, thus Class B shares were created.

Lindt and Spruengli AG (Trades on the SIX Swiss Exchange as LISN) 
Stock price $100,949.05 USD

The 177-year-old Swedish chocolate company is most known for its decadent Lindor chocolate truffles.
