In Market Cap, Google Now Bigger Than GE

  1. It’s pretty clear that GE is overvalued. As much we all love Google, it is unsustainable for a company’s market valuation to be such a large percentage of the total advertising market value. The total ad market is around$480 billion. Online is 8% or $36 bil. Search is 50% of that or $18 bil worldwide. It can grow significantly, but at some point there are limits.

    1. Rajiv,
      I have been looking for the breakdown of those numbers that you provided in your post. Could you point me in the direction that you found those numbers? I really appreciate it.
      Thanks,

      1. Eh, the market will not take Google. The only thing GOOG has to fear is the Government(s). Well, and Itself.

        There *could* be another dot-webz bust coming but it would come from Facebook, MS, maybe Yahoo again, and definitely a lot/MOST of the recent upstarts (excluding Twitter – I believe Google would save Twitter if it ever needed saving. Contrary to Eric Schmidt’s wonderfully crafted sarcasmic statements about “ghetto email”, lols.)
