While the world has focused on Apple’s stock price over the past few months, Google (GOOG) has slowly risen up and achieved its own milestone. The Internet giant’s stock previously peaked 747.24 in November of 2007, however as the economy worsened the stock began to decline, falling below $300 in 2008. Since then, the company has seen strong revenue from mobile advertising and the massive growth of its Android operating system. Google’s stock rose above $700 a share in early September for the first time since 2007, and after opening down slightly at $731, the stock gained nearly 2% to reach a new record-high of $748.89 at around 12:30 p.m. on Monday.
