As of this morning, Apple is officially no longer the most valuable company in the world.
After a positive Q4 earnings report, Alphabet, aka the company formally known as Google, saw its shares soar in early trading on Tuesday, lifting its market capitalization past Apple’s.
As of 10:15 AM EST, Alphabet was valued at $553 billion, eclipsing Apple’s market capitalization by $25 billion. 12 months ago, Google trailed Apple’s valuation by $330 billion.
Since then, the search giant’s market cap increased by more than 50 percent while Apple saw its valuation drop by 24 percent.
