Dude! Ur a moron. It did rocket after earnings, especially with a miss "and" in the face of a big down day for the overall market. Initially it sold off in after hours (due to missing estimates) to around $480, turned around and rallied 60 points to $540 before closing at $535. What part of all that din't you get to have you reply with criticism and name calling? If the overall market wasn't getting hammered, it probably would have tagged on another 20 or more points. If the markets rebound next week, GOOG could hit $600. That's only 12% away. Have a nice day. And by the way, #$%$.2. Lol!
