Cash – At the end of the quarter, Google had a cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments balance of $1.86 billion.

Revenue generated on Google’s partner sites, through AdSense programs, contributed $384.3 million, or 48 percent of total revenue

Pretty sweet...

Mona, If I offered you a piece of paper that paid a dollar last year and might pay a bit more this year (say 2$) and MIGHT even pay 5$ a year at some point would you pay 200$ for it?

Oh, and don't forget there are income taxes out of that too.

Even if I was the president of the USA you wouldn't buy it from me. You would be dead before you get your money back.

That is in the vernacular, "a bad investment"

I'm sorry, SlyOldDog, I don't understand your analogy:( I don't know a thing about investing and don't claim to. I was just saying why I bought the stock and why I plan to keep it.

Depends what other investments at the same level of risk are paying.

He he. I might have expected someone with a nick like Loanuniverse to say something like that :)

If you cannot recoup your investment in your lifetime it's better to hold cash right? Otherwise what is the point of making a long term investment? In the long term all investments tend to their true value (the value of the expected dividend/coupon stream).

The only rationale for holding an investment like Google at the current price is a short term gamble. That is possible when other investors are irrational and the price goes into a frenzy feeding off people's greed.

I'm sorry, SlyOldDog, I don't understand your analogy I don't know a thing about investing and don't claim to. I was just saying why I bought the stock and why I plan to keep it.

That's not an analogy Mona. It's what you bought.

Well, ironically I just found out that I didn't. Just got a message from my finacial advisor and he uhhh...hasn't bought it for me yet . Unbelievable. So know I'm not sure what I'm gonna do...

Guys and Gals the thing is that Google is overvalued, plain and simple. Before you get crazy and take out loans to buy stock, remeber that Yahoo! sold stock of Google. A company who's analyst all said to sell. So just think of that. Google is valued more than Yahoo.
