As Yahoo and eBay stock drops rapidly, I decided to compare the market caps of leading Internet stocks. More specifically, how many Internet companies do you have to combine to equal Google’s current market cap of $171 billion? Here’s the tally:
Yahoo (YHOO): $26B ($145B to go . . .);
eBay (EBAY): $36B ($109B to go . . .);
Amazon (AMZN): $31B ($78B to go . . . );
IAC (IACI): $7B ($71B to go . . .);
Time Warner, owner of AOL (TMX): $56B ($15B to go . . .);
Salesforce.com (CRM): $6B ($9B to go . . .);
Priceline (PCLN): $4B ($5B to go . . .);
Expedia (EXPE): $7B (Over by $2B!).
Which would you choose – Google or the eight other companies above?
