I have heard the rumor about google going public. But today at work I met the mother of a google computer dude that told me that they are going public really soon and he is going to get lots of stock options. I wish I were him...He's gonna be real rich real soon. Of course, they pay him plenty anyway.

They are probably looking to go public. My guess is that Lawrence Page and Sergey Brin (Google founders) are going to look to sell their stock options quick after the initial boom :twisted:

But seriously, I'd still consider buying some stock, but then again, Yahoo is coming out with record earnings because they've simply adapted to the Google Adwords way of doing things...

Well google is only going to be the best for so long... someone is sure to come up with something better, the question is how long... I would guess 3-5yrs, meaning if you plan to make a long term investment google may not be the best place.

I mean we've been led to believe google is the best, but is it... their are many other search engines, and no one can say they have tried every single one. It's a gamble, who knows I may be wrong...

I'm sure that google has enough cool ideas left to increase their revenue on a regular basis for sometime, so their stock will kick butt.

If not, enough ppl think that way, so they'll kick butt anyway. Of course it seems like they are #1 and have nowhere to go but down, but until somebody looks ready to challenge them, they'll stay #1 and make tons of money as a result.

I heard a stock analyst say they predict the stock is going to explode in price to $150+ and then the stock will fall to the $40-$60 range.

This is of course dependent on how many shares they put out. I'm guessing the company is worth about $20 billion dollars once stability is established if there is such a thing.

The company makes $70 million a year on advertising, but I think what really makes them valuable is that they get 70% of all internet searches - that in itself is priceless.

as 84% of all new traffic to a website comes from search engine.

Not my words - the stock analysts words. Any thoughts on this possibility.

No doubt the case will be something like that, unless Google does decide to auction shares eBay style.

There's a dilemma --- buy shares when it opens, regardless of price and get out after the initial surge, but take the risk you're buying too much. Or...wait until it steadies at a reasonable price, but risk losing a runaway stock...
