  • Huge beat on earnings, and that +31% YoY revenue growth is sweet. This may be a sell the news profit taking though. Perhaps we'll get a stock split?

  • Sell the news? The stock was down over 2% today prior to the announcement in anticipation of the worst. GOOG will rally tomorrow but not sure about the tech sector as IBM's numbers are pretty atrocious.

  • I'm commenting on the price action post-pop-up. Drifting lower. Since Goog has been a HFH they might look to take profits with the market. Yes, IBM is finally having its day! Maybe the CEO should spend even less time at improving her golf game to get into Augusta.

  • What's with the lower tax rate at 8% vs 18%? I'm big time long the stock but was that tax rate figured in on everybody's estimates?

  • "The tax rate after adjusting for tax effects from stock-based compensation and restructuring looks to be 10.5%. This helped EPS by $1.22 which means non-GAAP EPS would have been $10.36 and lower than the Street’s estimate of $10.69."
