    Stifel Nicolaus downgrades to sell

    eRational Exuberance - Where There Is Smoke, There Is Fire;
    Lowering to Sell
    Scott W. Devitt (703) 392-4844
    Marla A. Block (703) 392-4033
    � We believe Google is an outstanding company; however, we believe its
    shares are overvalued. We are lowering our rating on Google shares to
    Sell from Hold based on four factors � (1) we have historically noted
    Google's excessive valuation but maintained a Hold due to continued
    momentum and positive sentiment, (2) sell side expectations and ratings
    have risen throughout 2005 to the point that we now believe will limit
    upside potential, (3) Yahoo!'s results last evening broke the sector
    momentum and sentiment which should now force investors to focus
    more on what these businesses are worth rather than where the stocks
    may be going, and (4) unsustainable PPC pricing.

    As of yesterday's close, Google had an enterprise value approaching 3x that of Yahoo!. In after hours trading, Yahoo!
    was down 12% and Google was down 3%, further widening the gap. We are comfortable in our belief that Google is
    not worth three times Yahoo!. Also, we are uncertain as to a fair value for Google; however, we are comfortable
    believing it is well below $142 billion (307 million fully diluted shares * $465).
