Apple Becomes the Most Valuable Company in the World, Again!

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 6.36.49 PMAccording to annual BrandZ ranking which is compiled by Millward Brown, a marketing research firm, Apple passes Google to become the most valuable brand in the world. Apple reclaimed its long running title after losing it to Google in 2014. This has been attributed to a 67% change in brand value from $148 billion last year to $247 billion this year. Google had a brand value of $158 billion last year and a brand value of $173 billion this year therefore taking its place at the second slot.

Apple had been enjoying a three year run as the most valuable company before Google took the coveted price last year ending the streak for Apple. The data is usually derived from the market as well as from millions of customer surveys which help to determine a portion of the company’s value therefore being attributed to its brand.

The sudden increase in brand value for Apple in 2015 is attributed to the hype generated by the just released Apple smartwatch and was also boasted by increased iPhone sales which drove the company’s earnings higher. Google on other hand scrapped off its Google Glass product which has been attributed to the reduction in brand value. Other factors that have contributed to the decline include overseas regulatory troubles as well as lackluster earnings.

Ebola could drain billions of dollars from African economies – World Bank

By Anna Yukhananov WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The largest-ever outbreak of Ebola could drain billions of dollars from economies in West Africa by the end of next year if the epidemic is not contained, the World Bank said in an analysis on Wednesday. The global development lender predicted that slow containment of the deadly virus in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone could lead to broader regional contagion, particularly through tourism and trade.
