Google stock in a dip

Posted on Wednesday, Feb 01 2006 @ 20:24 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Google's stock opened today at $391.23, $41 lower than yesterday. The reason for the nearly 10 percent drop are Google's fourth quarter profits that fell short of Wall Street analysts's forecasts.

Compared to the same period last year, the company managed to boost its profit with 82 percent but this was lower than what analysts had suspected.

Yesterday in after-hours trading Google's stock had dropped to as much as 19 percent but today it looks like it's recovering a bit. At press time the stock trade at $396.70.
