Google, on Google

Posted on August 5, 2004

There has been a lot of speculation lately about how much Google is worth, what will happen when the company goes public with shares, what's the difference between a google and a gaggle, etc.

So I did a Google news search on Google. Apparently the financial world is no longer so smitten with the search engine and more company. It seems the IPO figure Google is expecting is unflated, and on top of that, the company is buying back shares offered in advance to employees.

It would be strange to see Google falter in any way, considering its rise in a few short years on the Internet. But in the financial world, there's no guarantee. At least Google hasn't filtered out the potentially bad news from its news searches.
