It's official: Google is now the most widely held stock within the 50 largest active mutual funds. This victory comes at the expense of Apple , which used to hold the title, and has since seen its share price evaporate. When a company becomes as widely owned as Apple or Google, it runs the risk of over-ownership, which could lead to shareholder fatigue, and ultimately price declines.
