Article here [money.telegraph.co.uk].

That would imply a heroic valuation of 144 times Google's income last year and 87 times net income for 2004, based on the estimates of Ms Wolk - a former UBS analyst whose CV says she has been named a "Wall Street Journal All Star".

Apart from the idea of buying into something that she values at +100 times annual earnings for something that will not be paying dividends is stupid ...any one think the price could go up from her figures ....?

What will the likely worth be if Redmond roll out bundled search engines ( they might and then sit out the litigation process and eventually pay the probable fine ) ....

"G" may go for this price ....you'd have to be a bloody fool to pay it tho...
The lady appears to be specialised in hype ...and headline grabbing ...how is her 5 year track record on performance of her tips ....?

What's that? A cheerleader for the dot.bomb era? :) The public is still getting over the Blodgetts and the Meekers.

The big unknown factor in all this is Microsoft. How valuable will Google shares be if Microsoft gets into the market and puts a search client in each new copy of its operating systems?
