It wasn’t long ago that we were talking about Apple’s record breaking stock value and now today we are going to be talking about Google’s value per share exceeding $800.00 for the first time. Google, who is based in Mountain View California has seen a steady rise in their stock value since since co-founder Larry Page stepped in and replaced Eric Schmidt as CEO on April 2011. Since then there has been a rise of 35% in stock value since he took over. Google, who would have never reached this plateau had it not been for stock holder squabbling over Google’s proposed stock split. Shareholders where concerned that the stock split would have given too much power to Google founders Page and Sergey Brin.
Great job Google, but as Apple knows all too well, enjoy it while it lasts. You can keep track of the stocks performance by visiting the sidebar on Mobility Digest.
