WSJ.com's MarketBeat blog points out today that Google's recent surge to all-time highs pushed the company's stock market value above Berkshire Hathaway's earlier today. But it didn't last all that long. At the close of trading Monday, Google's market cap stands at $164.32 billion, a bit over $1 billion below Berkshire's $165.71 billion. The horserace continues tomorrow.
To put those numbers into some perspective, Google and Berkshire's combined market value of $330 billion dollar is more than the (individual) Gross Domestic Products of Austria, Greece and Denmark.
