I think Google is too expensive right now. If it will correct it would be 20-30%.
Don't know how far it can still go but the extreme high market capitalisation looks dangerous.
I bought Ford when it was ~8 USD last year. Pretty happy with it.
I always look at the PER and Price/Book value.
An equivalent to Google (that actually makes money) in the technology sector and that performs nicely the past years is VMWARE.

Internet discussion forums on which posters claim to know better than the market what a stock should be priced at, or what a stock will do in the future, are an endless source of entertainment. :lol: Good luck boys.

I certainly back Chewy up on TATA, NYSE. They are really on a ride. I'm not much of "daytrader" because of distance and fees but I did buy in a few months ago and watch it daily. I am predicting continual rise with a dip here and there. Now that they bought Jaguar, with a newly designed model, it will continue. Check out the charts and info. :discodance:
