The Most Searched Stocks Around The World

The pandemic as a whole was clearly a negative for the stock market, with record lows coming from an unprecedented level of uncertainty. One small positive, however is that the pandemic saw an astronomical increase in the amount of people investing in stocks and shares – it’s estimated that 60% of current young investors began investing during the pandemic in 2020.1

With investing being more popular than ever before, the financial brokerage, XTB decided to research which stocks are being searched for the most, both worldwide and in individual countries. To discover this, they analysed the average monthly search volume of the 50 biggest stocks in the world (in terms of market cap) by using Ahrefs’s keyword search tool2, which revealed both the worldwide and country specific average monthly search volume for each of the 50 stocks.

The following table ranks the top 10 most searched stocks in the world over the last 12 months:
