Google surpasses Apple: it is now the most valuable technology company in the world



Google surpasses Apple: it is now the most valuable technology company in the world


The challenge between Apple and Google, as well as in the courts and in market percentages, it also continues on the actual market. These days the Mountain View company has surpassed all direct competitors by becoming the most valuable technology company in the world.

During 2012 Google has grown a lot, so much so that today it has a value of 240.6 billion dollars, against Apple’s 233.2 billion. The figures indicated must not be confused at all with those relating to the financial market; the difference lies in the addition, to the actual value of the company, of the working capital available. In this case, therefore, Apple’s 233.2 billion should be added 145 billion “cash”to arrive at a total of 378 billion; vice versa, speaking for Google, from 240.6 billion (with the addition of the 45 billion available) we would arrive at 286. However, these figures do not indicate the actual value, in fact the capital available has practically nothing to do with the valuation of the company.

The figures are mind-boggling, ad Google is worth more than Apple todaybut the situation will certainly change in the short term.
