    Goog and GoogL gap is nothing.

    You can google this story and read this quote below: It means both shares should be trading at same price!
    Buy Goog. Its a no brainer.

    If there is a big spread between the trading prices of the Class A and Class C shares during the first year of trading, Google Inc. will be required to pay an estimated $300 million to $7.5 billion in cash or additional stock to help make up the difference. Google agreed to those terms to settle a class-action settlement alleging the stock split was set up to benefit Page and Brin at the expense of other shareholders.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Find the terms of the settlement. it says if gap is about 5%, goog shareholders get compensated in full to 5%. If gap is 1%, then nothing. Anything higher than that, there is a formula for compensation.
      If Comcast is 2%, Google should be under 1% gap considering the settlement and the fact founders control more than 50% anyways and the googl votes mean nothing.
