Stronger-than-expected third-quarter results from Google Inc., derived in part from its success with mobile platforms, sent its shares soaring $122.61, or 13.8 percent, past the $1,000 plateau, hitting an all-time high of $1,015.46 before ending the week at $1,011.41. That allowed the Nasdaq to pace U.S. markets with a 1.3 percent gain to 3,914.28.
