Apple – Most Valuable Brand in the World, But Loses its Retail Guru to J.C. Penny

06.20.11

Google was the most valuable brand name in the world for 4 years, and now Apple has finally surpassed Google as the most valuable brand.  Rounding out the top 10 are very familar names:

1. Apple
2. Google
3. IBM
4. McDonald’s
5. Microsoft
6. Coca-Cola
7. AT&T
8. Marlboro
9. China Mobile
10. GE

Of course one reason for Apple’s value has been its great success in retail. No wonder J.C. Penny hired Ron Johnson to be their new CEO (Johnson was Apple’s senior vice president of retail).

Since so much of the world is dependent on eCommerce, including J.C. Penny, it will be interesting to see how Apple and J.C. Penny fare. I wonder what this portends for the future of eCommerce?

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
