they got their head handed to them trying to cover their short positions. GOOG is rated a buy and price target is anywhere from 550 to 650. If it falls short at 525 I will make money. It already blew past 500 once and will do it again as it is still expanding w/aquisitions and new features. The most intelligent creative tech brains are going to GOOG to work. The rejects will go to their competition. It's like a pro team getting all the #1 top college football stars from all the schools. Will their team win the super bowl? DUHH Dee da dee de!!
