How long until Google sinks like the titanic

    This is about the stock.

    Do you really think Google can maintain this monsterous stock? I believe it indeed will continue to climb.

    Do you own it?

    Im wishing I did. I debated buying some but opted out. Supposedly even now might be a wise time to buy, although a huge risk.

    My prediction is that google will be the worlds first trillion dollar company..

    General Electric is currently the most valuable company.. But I think google will surpass them.

    There is simply no way to stop this monster.

    Exactly.

    I am waiting for them to open their own restaurant, I can see it now, it would surpass McD's.

    It's so much more fun to get out of the house and then we'd have the best of both worlds, getting out of the house and a Google burger, yum. :p

    If I were to print out a photo of a burger and eat it I am sure it would probably taste better than a mcDonald's burger now...that shows how bad McD's burgers taste (IMO).

    I wouldn't eat a Google burger as I'm sure it would be made with Spam instead of hamburger :p

    Perhaps governments will change from backing up their economies from Gold to Google-Shares

    It will surely continue to grow, but its a question of how long they can maintain the growth. In order for the company to grow at such levels, they have to generate some serious cash. They could do it, but they could take a big hit too. Whats microsoft trade at now? 25 ? Yahoo only trades at 36. Google is at 279, btw down 4.63 percent :D

    google is a strong buy right now...a stock split is imminent... and then there will be further rises on the lower looking price.
    crazy seeing it is running at 100 times eps, c'est la vie

    Google is on a good very nice trend right now, but it may plateau. It could probably hold steady at $300 or so, as I predict, but there's so much volume trading these last few days it could prove different. To me, it's doubtful that is stays on the uptrend. It's well above the moving average and looks like it may be rallying more as there is money slowly moving back into the industry, but the volume has been so much that it likely will fall off and bring things back. They may also do something like split or whatever and that could change things. We'll know better by next week or two -- it is definitely one to watch for short term.

    IMO Google is the stock du jour. Everyone thinks search is the Next Big Thing, but no one seems to know a whole lot about it. So they go with what they know - Google.

    Imagine the dawn of the motor car: Everyone has a Ford model T. They like them and nobody knows much about the competition, or how the market will develop in the future - except that it is going to be "big". So everyone buys Ford shares.

    G's big problem is that they don't actually have a product. They have a service that connects you with other people's "product" (whether items for sale or just plain ol' content.) The web content will still be there without Google. It doesn't own it. So all it would take would be for another company to either find a better way of connecting the user with the content she is searching for (better algo), or a way to channel more users to use their system (MS embedding their search in Longhorn) and G could be in real trouble. The user will find the same end "product" (the content) whether via Google or not.

    So, to sum up, I think the current high price is due to market ignorance and "fadishness" (after all, G's tiny - by comparison to Tme Warner - revenues do not justify the stock price), and their position is extremely vulnerable in the medium term.

    If you were going to invest, you should have done so at the beginning and now would be an excellent time to get out.
