Google Shares Hit Landmark
Google shares briefly hit their highest point ever on Monday during trading,
over the $600 mark
. Shares settled below that by the end of the day.
By contrast, Google shares were $85 in 2004 at its IPO. Currently valued at
$187 billion, Google is the 11th largest company according to Standard &
Poor's 500 Index by market capitalization.
While reaching the $600 mark was a significant milestone, some Wall Street
watchers expect Google to break the $700 mark in the coming year as it continues
to expand into other areas. Stock price is another area where those feisty Googlers
are giving the Redmondians a run for their money.

and expansion into new markets? You won't have to search hard to find me at
