Why is this night different from all other nights? It's Passover for Google---will it report stellar earnings again and again be passed over by traders?
This quarter has been traditionally weak for Google, but the buzz is hopeful. Google has been slammed several times in the past by the analysts who can't guess right, but it has never had a really bad quarter.
I'm expecting a good report this evening, but probably not a home run, although I'm reasonably certain that it won't be thrown out at first.
Mixed metaphors in this post: 2.
