Google reported a 31 percent upswing in its first quarter revenues Thursday evening (April 18), pleasing investors and causing its stock to leap in after hours trading.

Google stock closed at $765.91, down more than two percent during regular trading hours. News of the search engine firm’s $13.97 billion in revenue for the quarter ending March 31, however, thrust shares upward to $776.80.
