From the WSJ's MarketBeat column, Google is bigger than Berkshire Hathaway in terms of market cap. Coming off the second worst week of the year for stocks, and the end of the 14 quarter streak of double-digit earnings growth for S&P companies, Google now has a market cap of $166.3bn and Berkshire Hathaway has a market cap of $165.6bn. Berkshire makes more net income than Google makes in revenue, but has worse margins, growth and is void of that whole 'impending world domination' ethos. Berkshire companies pull in $98bn in revenue and $11bn in net income while Google pulls in $11bn of revenue and $3bn in net income. Google has a 29% LTM net profit margin, which is the 8th highest in the NASDAQ-100, and just ahead of Microsoft's 28%.
