Google stock surpassed US$1,000 for the first time ever on Friday, 18 October 2013, a 13% rise, a day after the search giant announced its quarterly earnings.

Google beat Wall Street predictions by over US$100 million, with a revenue of US$14.8 billion for last quarter. A surge in mobile and video paid clicks advertising contributed to the rise in revenue.

With a market capital of over US$330 billion, Google is now the third most valuable company in the world, behind Apple and ExxonMobil.
