Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) retains the world’s most profit per second at $1,820, generating $57 billion per annum. The company's revenue increases by 2% every year - as they continuously innovate new products, Apple has become the world's leading technology company with record highs valued at over $2 trillion in 2021.

The 47-year-running tech company Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ:MSFT) takes second place making more than a thousand dollars each second of the day. Also within the same margins of profit per second is Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) (NYSE:BRK.B), both owned by Bill Gates.

Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META) (formerly known as Facebook) made an official debut in 2004. Although most recently adding to the colony of tech, metaverse has been integrated into Meta platforms and is still a working progress to increase user engagement and revenue. The average profit per sec is $924.

Further insights include:

  • Fellow tech giants Microsoft and Alphabet (the parent company of Google), as well as Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway, all also draw in more than a thousand dollars each second, which works out at over $100 million a day.
  • At the other end of the scale, Uber Technologies made a huge loss of $6.8 billion in 2021, equating to $215 every second. Despite being the world’s largest ride-hailing app, Uber has famously never turned a profit.
