Google’s stock price hits new high


Shares of Google jumped to a new high today.

The surge comes on the heels of a few positive analyst reports and news Thursday that co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page landed on the top 10 list of Forbes’ richest Americans, tied at No. 5, each with a net worth of $18.5 billion, a value that keeps increasing as Google’s shares climb.

Google rose $7.16, or 1.30 percent, to a new high of $559.99. In July, its shares hit a high for the year of $555.00.
