Google passes Microsoft in market valuation, sits far behind Apple as second-most valuable tech company
Google’s stock price has been on a steady rise over the last three months — thanks to that growth, the search, advertising, and mobile giant surpassed Microsoft earlier this morning as the second-most valuable technology company, according to Bloomberg. It’s been a few hours since Google first surpassed Microsoft, and as of this writing both companies have market caps right around $ 248 billion. But given the huge rise in Google’s stock over the last three months while Microsoft’s has been essentially flat, Google should move past Microsoft into sole possession of second place before long (though we can’t make any guarantees where the stock market is concerned).
Over the past few years, Google and Microsoft have been increasingly…
Apple hit a market capitalization of over $ 620 billion this early morning, breaking the record of $ 618.9 billion set by Microsoft back in 1999. The company is now worth over $ 200 million even more than the 2nd biggest business in the world, Exxon Mobil, and practically $ 400 billion more than Microsoft, which is currently worth $ 257.6 billion.
Apple’s appraisal is a factor of its share rate, presently just over $ 660 per share, and the number of outstanding shares offered to investors. The company’s share price has been steadily increasing as of late, as reports of a new iPhone and a smaller sized model of the iPad have acquired heavy steam.

It happened once before, in August, but that was due to a stock market collapse that left both Exxon and Apple well below their usual share price. This time, however, it would seem that Apple’s Q1 earnings call yesterday has led to a fresh spike on the stock market and what do you know?
Apple is once again the most valuable publicly traded company in the world, with a market cap of $ 414.83 billion.
Yesterday’s Q1 earnings call covered the period starting September 25, 2011 and ending December 31. That means it includes numbers for the iPhone 4S launch, along with any spike in sales during the holidays. Of course, anyone who’s following along knows that the next iPad will show its face pretty soon, leading Apple into what I’m sure will be another solid year.
Still, it’s a tough feat surging past Exxon as the company sells a commodity used by almost every country in the entire world, with a current market cap of $ 414.47 billion. Apple, on the other hand, sells computers, tablets, smartphones… you know, luxury items. That said, Apple isn’t quite in a place where it can maintain this lead for much longer.
On the other hand, the Wall Street Journal has rounded up new analyst estimates for the Cupertino-based company, and things are looking up with share price estimates ranging from $ 550 all the way to $ 666. Current share price for Apple is at $ 446, so hitting that goal anytime soon would be almost as mind-blowing as Apple’s Q1 results. Still, if Apple were to reach estimate share prices, its reign may last for much longer than expected.
As for the Dow Jones and the Nasdaq, both markets remain relatively unchanged for the day. The Dow Jones is at 12,713 points, up .30 percent on the day, while the Nasdaq is at 2,807.41 points, up .75 percent on the day.
