    Please clarify 300M shares = $300 Billion fund raising or not?

    When Google issues 300 M useless shares in a power grab, are they actually raising capital and will float the new stock? THAT is INSANE !!! a HUGE mistake.

    They must be seeing terrible financing and terrible volatility 10 years out, and are getting the financing up front before value collapses. OBVIOUSLY the MBA's see it as a window before a bubble bursts.

    Now, if each GOOG share owner gets an extra share, its dilution in quantity but relative to class B it is, and not any change in class A or C.

    If indeed they are going to try and raise another $300 B, by issuing new shares, that is in effect discounting future equity valuations by 100% or more. Which would have made Google larger than APPLE or EXXON, where by macro economic effects wouldn't allow share prices to appreciate.

    Thus I would easily suspect a 25% correction here within weeks. Easily $800 a share target for 2015 at best.
