Top four U.S. corporations based on brand-value: Apple, Google, Microsoft and Verizon
A company named Brand-Finance has just released its ranking of the top 500 brands in the U.S. for 2014 based on the financial valuation of each brand. The top four have a strong connection to mobile. Number one, with a brand value of $104.7 billion, is Apple. The Cupertino based tech titan is on top followed by Google, with a $69 billion value awarded to its brand. Microsoft and Verizon are numbers three and four, with brand values of $63 billion and $53 billion respectively.

Other prominent names in mobile include the $45 billion brand value placed on sixth place AT&T,  and the $6.6 billion value of the Sprint brand, which finished number 66. At 115, Qualcomm's brand is worth $4.3 billion according to Brand-Finance, and Motorola Mobility was raked number 219 with a brand value of $2.6 billion.

No surprise that the tech sector makes up a leading 23% of total brand value of $2.5 trillion in the states. Apple is the first company to exceed a $100 billion valuation of its brand.

Google is a year ahead in innovation compared to Apple & MS.Therefore Google deserves no 1 spot.

Because the A7 and Mac Pro are just shamefully uninnovative. Google's in-house designed 64-bit SoC and tiny workstation are miles better.

It isn't an innovation valuation it is based on financial valuation. In the end they still expect Apple to make more money than the others because that is their primary goal (and they aren't afraid to shaft their customers for it). Everyone else still has some potential to make money, but without a conscience, Apple is far ahead.

Don't worry, Google is still the #1 rated place to work. Some in the list above aren't even in the top 100.

You're right only APPLE is head of sales cause of it's popularity. GOOGLE is leading with activations and with their INNOVATIONS.
