Google + Yahoo + eBay + Amazon = less than Microsoft

Interesting to add up the market caps of the 4 leading internet companies and compare them to 30 year old Microsoft.

Google: $124.9 billion
eBay: $66 billion
Yahoo: $61.2 billion
Amazon: $20 billion
Total: $272.1 billion

Microsoft: $297.7 billion

I blogged in 2004, months before Google went public, that within 10-15 years Google’s market cap would surpass Microsoft’s.

In September, I said Google’s market cap would pass Yahoo’s by Q1 2005.

Then, in February of this year, I revised my forecast and said it won’t even take 10 years for Google to pass Microsoft.

It now seems that within a few more weeks, the combined market caps of Google, eBay, Yahoo, and Amazon will pass Microsoft’s. And then within a few more years, Google will likely be on top.
