GOOG may have hit the dilemma of all tech titans .. EBAY YHOO comes to mind. Stalling growth. If you minus the growth, the VALUATION drops rapidly!. Is GOOG at this cross roads?. Nobody knows. Time will tell.
GREEN days of making quick money from GOOG are behind it, it appears!
I have been long gold/silver/palladium/oil/gas for over ten years and have very solid profits.......but it can all dissolve if you are not careful and forget to leave greed by the door. I am keeping a careful eye on it for sure. I just feel Google has had its fun and now it is done. I am playing a small fry oil in bsic// due to its holdings in the Bakken formation and a solid management with a big position in the stock as well. It is risky for sure but I feel its risk/reward is in favor of reward. I shall see but it ain't for money you can't afford to lose.....Good luck. Boolean
