Place Your Bets: Google Reaches $2000 or TechCrunch Sells for $100M?



While you were working, an interesting exchange happened over the blogosphere. It seems TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington and Silicon Alley Insider’s Henry Blodget are having a war of words.

You might ask what this has to do with internet marketing, but I think you’ll find the exchange of interest.

First up, Blodget put up his thoughts on Google’s share price hitting $2000, giving it a market cap of $750+ billion.

Then Michael Arrington decided to voice his disdain for Blodget and his reckless valuation.

Not long after, Blodget blogged that he believed TechCrunch could sell for more than $100 million, possibly to CNET.

Lastly, Arrington (with tongue in cheek) took back his criticism of Blodget.

So, which do you think is more likely to happen? Google will reach $2000 a share, or TechCrunch will sell for $100+ million?

    @Dean – I’ll record it in HD!
    @Dan – I’d go with that. Assuming no stock split.

    Isn’t Google already at $2,000? Seems like every time I turn around their stock reaches a new high.

    It’s a tough call since both seem out of immediate reach, but at some point I assume at some point Google stock could get to $2k (assuming no stock split). How soon I’d have no idea and my guess is the stock would split before hitting $2k.

    I think Tech Crunch will reach to $100M+ due to its sole popularity in the blogosphere….
