The following video is from Wednesday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser and Matt Argersinger dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Shares of Google hit an all-time high on Wednesday. The tech giant now has a market cap of around $300 billion, trailing only Apple and ExxonMobil. Google CEO Larry Page has presided over the stock's recent run-up, and on Tuesday, he disclosed that he has been diagnosed with vocal-cord paralysis. He says the condition has weakened his voice but has not affected his day-to-day management of the company. In this installment of Investor Beat, our analysts explain what it means for investors.

As one of the most dominant Internet companies ever, Google has made a habit of driving strong returns for its shareholders. However, like many other Web companies, it's also struggling to adapt to an increasingly mobile world. Despite gaining an enviable lead with its Android operating system, the market isn't sold.
