    I'd say:

    Long term: $500 tops
    new lawsuits, competition, whoknows ...

    Short term: could make it $1000 at some point

    Time frame is important. By the end of 2006, I'd say it could hit $600 easy.

    $500 long term? That's a bit skeptical. If their growth rate continues at anywhere close to what it has in the past few years, it could be $5,000 or more in 10 years (if they don't split the stock).

    I don't think people truly understand what Google has done to the marketing world. It's a true revolution - PPC marketing actually produces a good and measurable ROI for most companies.

    NO other form of marketing really does that. TV is good for advertising Coca-Cola, but not specialized products. PPC advertising is the future of marketing, and Google has a sizable lead at this time. Prospects for growth, both domestic and international are fantastic.

    Sorry for the soap-boxing, but I have a somewhat unique perspective on the financial side of things, being a publisher who uses adsense, and a former stockbroker.

    I just can't see Google stock rising above $1000, even with all the expanding or new services they're opening up. In fact as a shareholder, I'd be concerned that the company is expanding to fast....but then again I'm no analyst.

    Take Care.

    Don't think in terms of the "price" of the stock, it's completely irrelevant. A price like $1,000 being too "high" doesn't mean much, other than the fact that it's a psychological barrier :)

    Look at the market capitalization - Google as a company is valued at around $137 billion dollars. Microsoft is valued at about $287 billion dollars. Yet Google stock is worth $465 per share today, where Microsoft is $27 per share. The difference is that Microsoft has sold MANY more shares than Google. So even though it appears that Microsoft is worth less according to the stock price, it's worth more than twice what Google is (for now ;) .

    I predict they'll go past a grand. I just hope I'm able to get a few shares before then.

    Here is a story for ya!

    My father who has no knowledge of the stock market had a spare $2,000 to put away for his pension in 1986. He read about Microsoft's IPO and bought their stock at the IPO.

    18 years later he retired and sold them for over $700,000 !!! He didn't know what he was doing and was lucky.

    Once in a generation these opportunities are available and in my opinion Google is ours. I bought Google shares in the week following the IPO and I fully expect them to provide the same sort of return as Microsoft did for my father. Maybe better :)

    - Michael

    $800 by year end. $2500 by 2010.

    http://www.pbs.org/cringely/pulpit/pulpit20060105.html

    The beginning is a little boring, but by the middle it is really eye-opening into the potential for targeted marketing for tv and radio. I bet the technologoes will barely begin to be visible in 2006 but within a couple of years the pieces are going to come together.

    And, if Google is able to give consumers a light-weight, cheap, and easy to use alternative to windows ... well look out!

    I agree that Google is the kind of opportunity that comes along maybe once every ten years... their stock still has a long way to go up IMO.

    awww yeeeaaahh... now we're talking!

    I couldn't have said it better myself. Google is the next Microsoft, and there is an opportunity for everyone here at DP to become millionaire's in the next five years if they buy and hold some Google stock.

    I just wish I was making more money so I could by some shares. I'm going to try to get some by the end of the year.

    I belive that Google will go all the way to 530 USD, but once it hits that, it will go down back to around 450 USD and then slowly go up again to around 500 USD!

    Even if only one or two of the rumors regarding Google come true, their earnings will continue to grow at amazing rates. Just look at worldwide internet usage data, changing media consumption patterns, and the total amount of advertising online compared to traditional means. It's truely amazing what Google can do and I wish I had the money to invest.
