As I said before numerous S&P 500 companies no longer provide guidance. It's a growing trend that is healthy because it keeps CEOs/CFOs from playing the "beat the number" game.
Also to compare GOOG to JDSU, WCOM and Global Crossing is adsurd. Google has an unbelievable business model and are pulling away from the competition everyday. They are the 800 pound gorilla, the category killer and any other metaphor you want to pick. GOOG is just not another "tech stock".
I am told that if you want to achieve some thing you should have a goal or target. If the company does not provide a target or goal then I wish you good luck. I hope you have not bought the shares at $450.00.
"How could you possibly know that if they don't say what their business model and future guidence & model is????? "
So you don't know GOOG business model? I suppose you should refrain on giving your opinion on the stock if you don't know what they do.
As for guidance...who needs hand holding (besides some analysts)? Look at the sales and earning trends. Look at Google's ever expanding marketshare. Look at the extremely low penetration of online advertising.
