According to a recent Adweek survey, Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) overtook Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) as the most valuable brand. What can investors take away from this?

On today's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Eric Bleeker talk about brand value by comparing tech giants Google and Apple. While Google's market cap isn't close to Apple's, Eric explains that Google increased 40% year over year, while Apple fell. Yet, Eric thinks that Apple is a better company overall, and tells viewers to take listings like Adweek's with a grain of salt. Then Eric talks about brands, and how that specifically flows into product quality, both of which he believes Google continues to work on.
