Why Meta Platforms Stock Was Up Today

Shares of Meta Platforms (NASDAQ: META) were moving higher today as investors responded favorably to the Facebook parent's launch of its new Quest 3 mixed reality (MR) headset, which comes just days ahead of Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) expected reveal of its own MR headset. As a result, Meta stock was up 3.4% as of 2:08 p.m. ET on Thursday on the news. In an Instagram post, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the highly anticipated device.
