Update: As you can see to the right, Google Closed at close to 750, its highest mark ever.

Heading into the afternoon, Google’s stock price hit a record high of $748.90 at around 12:30 p.m. EST. Today’s record beats out Google’s previous record of $747.24 set in November of 2007, after which Google’s stock quickly fell. However, over the last month, it has been shooting upward, perhaps fueled by Google’s continued Android growth, solid ad sales, and  possibly some performance issues with Apple’s new Maps solution. At any rate, Google’s team is most likely celebrating their accomplishment. Who knows, it is still early in the afternoon, so maybe another record will be broken. [Google via BGR]
