“Shares of Google (GOOG) are up more than 25% so far this year and the stock hit a new all-time high above $888 Tuesday morning,” Paul R. La Monica writes for CNNMoney.

They are fantasizing about a quadruple digit stock price,” La Monica writes. “After all, Google would “only” have to climb another 13% or so to get to $1000. (Google, you may recall, is planning to eventually split its stock. So it may not have this high of a price in the future. But the proposal is on hold for now due to a shareholder lawsuit about whether the split would give too much control to co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin as well as chairman Eric Schmidt.)”
