The company Apple Inc. headquartered in Cupertino, California sells various consumer electronics, computer software, personal computer and many more.

According to latest reports, Apple after beating its close competitor Samsung and Google has become the most valuable company with net value worth more than $119 billion. The brand value of the company was increased by 21 percent followed closely by Google with an increase of 15 percent worth value $107.43 billion. This is first time that two global brands have increased its value worth more than $100 billion. Both the leading brands has reached new pinnacle when considered in terms of its brand value.
By increasing its brand value by 86 percent to $14.3 billion, Facebook is noted to be the highest riser in the chart. Sources say that the reason behind Facebook’s rapid rise is said to its flourishing ad business on mobile phones exceeding more than half nearly 53 percent of the revenue. However Facebook’s latest ownership of messaging service WhatsApp for $19billion can certainly change the sphere of messaging as well as social media industry. All these truly signify the power of branding as well as its net value.
