OUCH!
[finance.yahoo.com...]
After Hours (RT-ECN): 366.78 -65.8801 (15.23%)

Here are what matters to average investors--the headlines:
"UPDATE - Google profit misses Street target, shares drop"
"Google's quarterly results fall short of expectations"
"Google profit misses Street target"
"Google Earns $372.2M in 4Q, Misses Views"

Goog's valuation was and still is scary: they're worth about half of MSFT, and MSFT makes about $3 Billion a quarter in profit from a gazillion sources.

>> That's a pretty sweet deal, sell tens of millions of dollars worth of shares and then take advantage of a non open market opportunity to get more shares for $0.00 to sell shortly thereafter.

Once again: they didn't make the rules. Everyone does the stock option things, and I would do the same. Actually, I would've messed up and sold at least 30% of my shares at $85...

K, once again, this is fun :)

Someone BIG is blasting Google with all blasters. I've read Barron's article. Although author makes pretty intelligent statements, nothing in that article is revealing and should make a company stock go down 50%.

Why funny? Nothing's changed fundamentally. Re: insider's selling - insiders sell at every company. Insiders typically sell on scheduled intervals so that it doesn't affect stock price. It makes sence - they made the money "on paper" (i.e. stocks), now they want the real coin. They protect the future of their families.

But - GOOG should fall 50% if they fail to produce A SECOND SOURCE OF REVENUE. That is crucial IMHO.

He layed down the risks, and that is enough. G's price has been pushed this high because of speculations that it could do no wrong and it would crush every field it enters. The article suggested that it may not be as easy to compete with MSFT, YHOO, telecoms, book publishers etc., and even if Google screws up or get screwed a bit, the investors will be disappointed.

Let's not forget that even at 50% off, Goog would still be valued at about $50 Billion. Not exactly a penny stock.

Bubble happens. I think it's still too soon to buy more, but when I think it has bottomed out I'll be back in with both feet.

lets move to other threads here... this issue is on going, but the point of the thread is long-since-lost...
