The whisper number is $6.67, in-line with the analysts estimates. Google has exceeded the whisper number in 18 of the 24 earnings reports we have data, including the past seven out of eight quarters. But the company did miss the whisper number by fourty-one cents last quarter, and the stock price saw weakness immediately following that report. Investor expectations (the whisper number) are much more tempered this quarter. Google reports earnings today after market close. More information can be found at http://www.whispernumber.com.
