Larry Page's Lesson for Investors

Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) has been on a roll since Larry Page returned as CEO, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.

The stock is up more than 40%, about in line with Apple's performance over the same period and better than what we've seen from Microsoft and the broader market. Investors shouldn't be surprised, Tim says. Page, like business partner Sergey Brin, is a committed founder. History shows that founders with huge stakes in the businesses they've created tend to do better for investors.

In Page's case, Google has shown a renewed interest in crazy innovation via the likes of Google Glass and its Calico project for extending human life, all while delivering better, more integrated apps via the cloud.

Can investors expect the rally to continue? Tim answers this question and more in the video. Please click to watch now, and then leave a comment to let us know where you stand.
