What Company Will Win The Race To $1,000?
Just last year Apple (AAPL) appeared set to win the race amongst a group of select tech stock to reach $1,000. Though the company had become the largest valued stock in the world, it still was competing with Google (GOOG) and Priceline (PCLN) to be the first to reach the magical $1,000 mark.

Typically those are the stocks discussed in that race to $1,000, but it actually appears that Priceline will easily win the contest with it now trading near $960. Time will tell so let's review the possibilities as the probability of reaching that magical figure is higher than most think these days.
