Google Shares Hit Landmark

Google shares briefly hit their highest point ever on Monday during trading, creeping 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.
