Too late stock tanking in after hours trading down almost 6%

Diskoman says:

That's called profit taking, not "tanking". Look for the stock to be up by Monday's close.

To be honest it doesn't matter what they announce. Their stock was going to lose some value no matter what, that being said I'm sure the event next week will bring it back up in no time.

Your right but the adwords revenue being down is a bit disconcerting...

hodan says:

Cost per click declined, I didn't see that AdWords revenue declined.

NoNexus says:

Sorry I mispoke, when I was doing ecommerce, AdWords was directly related to CPC, thought it still was...

If the 'New' Play Store is an indication of where they are heading, time to sell their shares.

Far as I'm concerned, increase in revenue is never a good thing. That's money that's coming out of our pockets, one way or another.

And a loss of over 9,000 jobs is never a good thing, especially in this economy. It's usually the little guys, while the big guys who are running the company into the ground (not saying Google is) are getting bigger paychecks.

And Motorola still losing money. A company getting closer and closer to bankruptcy means lots of people out of jobs. Hey, I got an idea: cut some jobs, starting with the guys at the top.
