Last month I wrote that the risk-reward in shares of Google (GOOG) looked extremely favorable. It just so happened that the stock bottomed two days later and has soared 57 points since. Technicians will likely be pleased to see that Google hit a new all-time high on Tuesday, breaking through a previous double-top.
Hopefully some readers took advantage of Google trading in the low 460’s. If you did, where to from here? Well, I have not sold any of the positions I initiated when I wrote the last article. I think a P/E of 30 is very reasonable given Google’s growth prospects. With 2008 earnings estimates north of $19 for the company, there is no reason to doubt that a price objective of $575-$580 is attainable in the intermediate term.
