I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Google stock looks like a pyramid scheme to me.
The only way investors can make money out of the stock is by share price gains. The company does not pay any dividends.
You realize this company has about $50B in cash right? They also expected to earn about $40 per share this year. If more companies in the US had these problems, we'd all be rich.
BTW - Microsoft didn't pay dividends for years either. Oh yeah, and Apple doesn't pay dividends either.
