Management speaks in (fairly low-quality) video, plus the Prospectus online, etc.


Reuters:
[reuters.com...]

SEATTLE, July 30 (Reuters) - Top Web search engine Google Inc. (GOOG.O: Quote, Profile, Research) began taking bids on Friday for the public auction process it will use to sell as much as $3.3 billion shares to the public for its planned offering in mid-August.

A Google spokeswoman confirmed that www.ipo.google.com had gone live, where bidders can apply to get an identification number to participate in the so-called Dutch auction.

Yes, wait until after they hit the market and the price drops.

Get someone you trust to buy them by proxy? or wait after the IPO :(

If they do go up and you sell them, make sure you give the person the money for tax liability.

/not sure if it is legal however....

Anyone have trouble with the video? It died about 2/3 of the way through here.

You have to make a profit first before you need to worry about tax liability. That probably wont be an issue for most.

Google Inc. is offering 14,142,135 shares of Class A common stock and the selling stockholders are offering 10,494,524 shares of Class A common stock...

Easter egg: 1.4142135 = sqrt(2)

one thing that struck me as funny in the video was how they stressed the LEFT and RIGHT sides of the Google interface.

They act like there is no advertising whatsoever on the left side. What about the listings that go "UP NORTH" in the old premium spots? Isn't that considered left side?

The "Risk Factors" section makes very interesting reading...

Highlight the full section under each slide in Appendix A. Hidden text... Bad, bad Google!

Maybe that's why they were dropped from the index [webmasterworld.com].

Note, the link goes to the supporters club...oops, I mean 'forum'... ;-)

Video didn't work for me (bought me to ipo.google.com), used loanuniverse's technique also and it prompted me to download index.html from ipo.google.com.

Anyone have a mirror link/copy?

I am going to sell short on Google and make money as their stock price drops.

I don't think the move will be that marked either way for a while. That is, those looking for a quick kill will be dissapointed and so will be the ones looking to sell short.

10% to 20% either way, I think.

Selling short still sounds like a good way to go if you ask me.

Trend is your friend. If the whole market tanks sure Google will also tank. In fact it can even be Google who will make it tank : with their IPO they will just pump available liquidity :D
