Google Stock Crosses Magical $1000 Per Share Barrier

Thanks to a very strong third-quarter earnings posted by Google, the Mountain View company's stock rallied forward to cross the magic number 1000 in the stock market, with its stock settled at over $1000 per share as we speak. Many Google employees have a lot to cheer about, especially considering that the company gives its workers stock options (jealous). The company's share price surged nearly 15% after they posted their earning's report, following which the share price actually held its own and stayed above the $1000 mark. In contrast, Apple's share price is nearly half of Google's, somewhere in the range of $550.
