Hereís one you donít see everyday: Google telling Wall Street analysts that their estimates are too high.
Google issued the heads-up this morning, via a blog post on its investor relations page, ahead of Q4 earnings on Tuesday.
The gist: Google is selling off its Motorola set-top-box unit ó its ďHome business,Ē so itís not going to include numbers from that group in its main report.
But apparently the Street hasnít figured that one out. ďAs of this writing, a majority of Wall Street analysts who cover Google have not reflected the Home business as discontinued operations in their estimates,Ē writes chief accountant Brent Callinicos.
