BRK.A or Berkshire Hathaway or Warren Buffet is the most expensive publicly traded stock. As of July 2021, per share, it was trading at $425,645. And all the credit goes to the spectacular shareholder gains along with its founder’s idiosyncrasies.

Bottom Line

If we consider pure market value research, the crown of the most valuable company of all time goes to Apple. Although in September 2018, Amazon had briefly hit the market capitalization of $1 trillion. So, it is certainly possible that the market capital or any other company will exceed Apple’s. And though the chances are really small, any other company also can beat Berkshire Hathaway as the single stock with the highest price.
