Google lost yet more of its shine yesterday after a senior executive at the internet search giant admitted growth at the company was slowing.
Shares in Google fell 13% in early trading on Wall Street and dragged stock markets lower on both sides of the Atlantic after chief financial officer George Reyes told an investor conference in New York that "growth will slow", although he added, "Will it be precipitous? I doubt it."....

His comments compounded market fears that Google's previously stellar growth prospects are compromised. Google's shares, which have already lost over 15% of their value this year, recovered some of their early losses by the afternoon when they were down 5.5% at $369.24 (£212.25). Google's stock had risen rapidly since it floated at $85 a share in August 2004 but signs of waning faith in the business emerged in January when its latest quarterly results statement missed some analysts' forecasts.

30 forward multiple as of yesterday. OK, maybe 35 if growth slows more. Say, to 50% a year. :)

Yeah, baby. That ain't eyeballs, man, that's Jacksons. A cash machine.

Dude, didn't you scream from the mountain top to avoid the Google IPO?
You then screamed to dump it when it reached 200...
a quick search yielded the following

I know this a political rather than an investment board, but I happen to agree totally with this well-written Fool piece, advising folk to steer well clear of the Google launch.

Lots of good reasons to avoid Google

Tell us all why you think Google will be a good buy, Ray.

I'll renmind you of this exchange when the Google bubble bursts. As it will.
There were siren voices all the way up during the dot.com boom, and the investors piling into these Great Concepts looked down with scorn at the doomsayers.

But what do I know, Peter?
What do you know?
And while we're at it ....who ordered the veal cutlet?
Who am I, again?




Now, lets see you put your money where your mouth is. Tell us when you put that short sell through and how much were you willing to risk. Good luck there, chap.

Trusting your stock advice is as good as trusting your opinions on Israel/Jews. As I saw the search result, it was kinda funny to bump into your Israel bashing tirades when putting "google" as the search criteria.

P.S. thanks Abe.

that's Jacksons



Your description of Google as an investment stock, is that Cockney rhyming slang?

We sometimes describe something very dodgy as "a load of old Jacksons", an abbreviation of "a load of old Jackson Pollocks".....
