Google Inc., builds products and provides services to organize the information and make it universally accessible and useful. It provides Search, a service that delivers relevant search results in response to user queries; Product Listing Ads that offer product information. BALANCE SHEET Google Inc. earned $3.3 billion, or $9.94 per share, during the opening three months of the year. That was a 16 percent increase from $2.9 billion, or $8.75 per share, last year. If not for certain expenses, Google said it would have earned $11.58 per share. Revenue climbed 31 percent from last year to $14 billion. After subtracting advertising commissions, Google's revenue totaled $11 billion — about $335 million below analyst estimates. The first-quarter numbers show that a recent decline in Google's average ad prices is easing. That's an indication that marketers are starting to pay more for the ads that Google distributes to smartphones and tablet computers. Google's average price, or the "cost per click" to advertisers, has fallen from the previous year in six consecutive quarters, including the opening three months of the year. GOOG PE stands at 24.83 below the industry average of 67.86 and above the S&P 500 average of 16.70. The stock is currently trading 9% below its intrinsic value of $874.82 this suggests that the stock is undervalued at these levels. GOOG's current Price/Sales of 5.03 is above the average of its industry of 2.33. The beta of 1.15 implies higher volatility of the stock with respect to the S&P 500. GOOG’s Total Debt/Equity is 7.70 and is acceptable for our model. At the end of the quarter, Google had $50.1 billion in cash and cash equivalents. The company pays no dividend. I believe GOOG is still a buy
This thread is for those who like to discuss about the Fundamental Valuation (Relative valuation / Discounted Cash Flow valuation) of stocks listed on NYSE.
