Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META) stock is a hot topic among traders on Friday after the social media company hit a new all-time high this morning.

META stock is trading for roughly $527.88 per share as of this writing. This sets a new all-time high for the stock. Investors will note that Meta Platforms’ shares have been on a recent uptick before this new record.

Looking back at the stock’s history, Meta hit a rough period in 2022. That came alongside decreased use after lockdowns, rising inflation and increased interest rates. All of this was weighing on the shares.

However, the company spent much of 2023 regaining lost ground. While it did see a slight slump late last year, it didn’t take long for the Facebook parent company to come out of it.
