Google now the 2nd most valuable company in the world


Google became the second most valuable company in the world last week. Beating the multi-national oil and gas corporation Exxon Mobil wasn’t easy, but Google finally managed to beat it by one billion dollars. Google’s market value hit $391 billion, while Exxon Mobil went down to $390 billion.

This makes sense: Google’s Q4, 2013 numbers look amazing, while Exxon Mobil’s earnings report was not as pretty to investors. FactSet Research’s numbers display the situation in detail.


Google still has a long way to beat Apple, though. Google won’t make it to first place soon, but let’s hope things keep getting better for the Search Giant! You have about $75 billion to go, Google!
