From Lee's list: Google Analyst: “Worst Economic Environment In Our Collective Lifetimes


Google’s stock price closed yesterday at $291, the first time it has dropped below $300 since 2005. It’s 44% off of its 52-week high of $725. Most analysts think its cheap and getting cheaper - the average price target is still over $500. Former analyst Henry Blodget, however, thinks it could fall to $200


WOW :cower:

I always felt it was overpriced.


It's interesting to me, as an ex-employee of Verticannet, once a Dot Com darling, to see Google "drop" to around $300/share, which was Vert's high point (or a tad above $300). When I left VERT, it was around $2.00 a share. The drop was hard and swift and that was only 6 years ago.

And the pain still lingers....because they laid off hundreds of us who weren't fully vested and we got nothing and those had something and didn't sell in time, left with nothing.

Yea, it seems this will be happening to Google soon. And if not, they must have a lot of money stocked in a safe somewhere or underneath their desks.

Sad how the increase always leads to a decrease. Hopefully the government will stop with these 'bailouts' and let nature take it's course. Even if it means layoffs, the leaders need to learn and putting a bandaid on a gushing wound isn't going to solve anything.

Sad to hear that about your experience Kim, see what being an entrepreneur, lead to in your life? A great company and smarter wisdom, than your previous employers. :)

Suffice it to say that any offer of "stock options" means zilch to me, and in most cases, turns me off in seconds.

(I still look for opportunities for me to grow...but I'd have to be dragged kicking and screaming back into a corporate environment.)

That's partly why I'm trying to start up my own company. Even though my family's business is doing well, as soon as management changed, I knew I had to leave before they kicked me out. (I was rated #1 employee by a major of the people there).

Too many businesses think they got things covered when they have no real money. It's all in credit. :( Sadly this is where I am now but the first steps are spending money in a new business, not saving it. :) It's only in later steps, you get out of debt and have a solid savings.

America's corporations have become 'spend spend spend' when they don't realize, they are increasing their debt to someone and if the business doesn't succeed, they can't pay it off, which in turn causes them to go bankrupt, and in turn hurts the lendor. :(

I'm sure there are plenty of smart business people out there but I think a majority of them are small business owners because they've been burned in the past by stupid decisions of big corporations.

I could be over-exagerating things but hey, it's my micro opinion :)

"fast track" eh?

Google Inc. has approached major cable and phone companies that carry Internet traffic with a proposal to create a fast lane for its own content, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Google has traditionally been one of the loudest advocates of equal network access for all content providers.


This doesn't surprise me :angry:

Now now Kim :)
If the WSJ can't get Wall Street right don't expect Fox, The Print Version, to get tech news correct. :angry: :wacko: :infinite-banana:

What Google is suggesting is edge cacheing, placing mini-Google data centres next to each telecoms data centre to speed up query responce time. And enormously decrease their internet bandwidth use. It would be a data centre agreement. Actually if the telecoms had any vision, sense, ability, etc. they'd have already offered up such data centre cacheing to all sorts of big players.

Google is playing fair - and smart. The telecoms are playing dinosaurs. And the WSJ is once again talking through their hat.

No No No!!!

I appreciate that you trust my judgement and insight (may just print that out and frame it :angry:)
BUT
make your own determination following your own research.

I will say that there have been some articles written where edge cacheing seems contrary to various Google prior statements about net neutrality. That is one issue.

Another is whether edge cacheing is new - it is not. Various other big web players already do some here and there. Google would be a follower not an innovator.

As I mentioned previously the telecoms are really missing the boat by not offering edge cacheing to all. Currently those doing it have made individual agreements and deployed their own (I believe) hardware. The status quo effectively limits players to those with the credit and ability. It could be otherwise.

A couple of my sites are mirrored. Sort of a poor mans version of edge cacheing. In either instance the result is fewer hops, less latency and improved user experience.

Perhaps how one defines net neutrality makes a difference.
Which is an argument discussion for another time.
