Public Interest In Investing

A spokesperson for Bacancy commented on the study: “The last year has seen more public interest in investing than ever before, so it is very interesting to see which companies are ranking as the most searched for stocks of 2021. The recent news regarding Elon Musk’s sale of Tesla shares will be sure to cause hysteria around the company’s portfolio, with the stock anticipated to rise following the announcement.”

The research was conducted by app development company Bacancy Technology, an exclusive hub of top software developers, UI/UX designers, QA experts and more, offering development services for the creation of high-end, enviable applications.


The study analysed the top 50 popular stock companies in 2021 and was then narrowed down to the top 10 based on google searches per month on average.
