I believe that Facebook’s valuation will never be as high as it is today. According to the private capital markets company SharesPost, the most recent shares in Facebook changed hands at a price that gave an implied valuation of $82.4bn.

Google on the other hand, has a market cap of $172bn. Is Facebook really worth 50% of Google?

…..Anyhow, let’s see 1 year from now on 7/7/2012 where the valuation of these two companies stands compared to today.

and the answer is…

Google is today worth $210bn – up 22%

Facebook is today worth $47bn – down 43%

Probably the first time I’ve ever got stock price movement correct!
