Forget it. GS is merely trying to put up the stock to get its clients out.
What added value does AI assisted ad positioning provide? None at GOOG's Adwords rate and margins. Well, big boyz go with high flutin' where smart guys know what they need to know. Specifically, this model can only work during the rush to grab loose change where volume and quality still command a margin. That advantage is slipping rapidly as the volume of ad business across all industries breaks the second derivative. The Internet is being defined by FB's plunge into ads everywhere. Yuk. I was looking for VMs and next day my box was choked with context sensitive ads. I hated it.
Sell 2K unless you wish to hold with anxiety and regret for a long time. The bull in high PEs is ending. Why? Check your basic golds. Gold rises in anticipation of FED assisted eternal prosperity.

The company has had some set backs in production mostly in Niobrara, but that doesn't mean a thing. A rising tide raises all boats, and that's what's going on here. The tide comes from increasing world demand in spite of substantially increased world supply. Meanwhile, the usual big consumer, the US, remains hobbled by Kyng's socialism. This has the constructive effect of creating a stable environment which allows properly positioned producers across the patch to achieve accelerating profitability. We don't see many of these win win environments.
