    $20 Stock Selling for $180

    Any time you hear people say things like: "This company is one of a kind. It can not be evaluated in terms of any other company that has ever existed . . . "

    Be very careful.

    There is only so much money in the advertising sector. GOOG is not worth more than the top 10 advertising agencies combined. It is currently valued at 5 times what Netscape was worth at its PEAK. You could sell the whole company at this value, put the money in a 3%-interest-bearing savings account, and the profits would be more than double what the actual profits of the company are.

    Don't believe the hype. This is a great product, a great company -- but it still needs to produce much better profits on investment at the end of the day if it is even to justify its current valuation.
