All I gotta do is quote Charlie Munger, “Google has a huge new moat. In fact, I’ve never probably seen such a wide moat. I don’t know how to take it away from them. Their moat is filled with sharks.” GOOG is Growth at a Reasonable Price company.

Google is tackling competitors like Apple and Microsoft not for the sake of profit but to expand its horizons and innovate in established fields as well as establishing new fields. Google has the ability to discover the new 'it' technology and establish itself as a leading innovator like Apple, and as an adaptive and strong brand like Microsoft.

For me Google is giving what consumers want. Just think of Chrome, and the amazing built-in app and extension system.

I think GOOGLE may be slightly overheated but I still plan on holding for the long haul. If it does drop then I will pick up more shares.

Free cash, marketing, innovation, and the largest economic moat i've every seen. I don't need to convince you why this is a good company to invest in. I only regret I hadn't invested sooner.

Besides this website, try Zacks.com, SeekingAlpha.com, and Fool.com for ideas. Vuru has people commenting, but sometimes, it can be days or even weeks before someone posts a comment, which is why I suggested alternatives to this website. I could give you some ideas as to some stocks to look into, but do your due diligence, meaning you should do your homework and investigate it further to see if it is worth investing. You should also talk to an investment professional, preferably one with a CFA designation, because CFAs analyzes financial information. Stockbrokers sell stocks, but typically they don't analyze stocks, so their motivation is to sell you stocks, because that's how they generate a commission. Here's the ticker symbols of some stocks I'm looking at, but as I said before, do your homework: BP, BVN, INTC MT, PGF.TO, PGH, T, VOD,

Is Google a brilliant company? well yes

But what about the price?

P/E of 27 is quite high.

Think i pass and stand on the sideline for a while and hoping for a big short term drop in price.

@Ingo Yes, plus the P/B and P/S metrics are rather high. It closed Friday at its' historical high. Eventually stocks will cool off. I would be patient and wait for the stock to plunge down. For those of who can't say it won't happen, look at IBM. It's trading for less today than it was in the 1960s.

Google has already diversified and poured money into so many different businesses that it has already proven itself worthy in spending each dollar towards the long term. As long as that statement holds true, I will never doubt Google. Correction on previous statement, "Search is the largest source of revenue for Google, but its not the only source, (Ex. youtube ads)From my standpoint, Google has no competitors really as there is no firm really competing on Google's level save Sony, Microsoft.

Where is it backed up that search is stalling. Free Cash has grown to 11 billion. I'm not a huge fan of the Mot buy, but Youtube is a behemoth. Revenue has tripled to 2 billion in 3 years at Youtube. Goog should concentrate more on new content or aggregating content better in Youtube. Combine that with their new fast fiber and I see Youtube earnings possibly growing to 10 billion in 8-10 years. I hope Goog recognizes that Youtube is potentially their biggest asset.

@drew Android is winning the battle with iOS in terms of mobile phones.

Search market share is stalling. Not sure that they can keep growing till the end of time.

Well Google itself said that it is no more only a search company. But much more than that. Their entry in Mobile industry and TV/Internet industry is a sign of it. As they cannot only rely only on search anymore.

The problem is, Google+ totally changed the company. A lot of the employees have been complaining that it's an entirely different culture since the G+ push and since Larry Page took over. I'm far less bullish on GOOG than I used to be as a result...

Google is merging into becoming a platform and an OS. We may think that OSX has the advantage here, but actually, Google has been App based well before Chrome, people just looked at it as though they were visiting websites, but what Google was doing was building an integrated platform which is now being tied together in actual hardware through Nexus. While Apple arrived there through a single-minded leader, Google really crowd sourced itself to the same destination, with the difference being that Google's platform is far more nimble and responsive, while Apple is now struggling with a gated community issue.

GOOG is now a long slow growth company-- advertising while not dead isn't paying out like it used to. I do believe the future of GOOGs income/growth will be social/mobile and internet and you'll prob see an uptick in the price as earnings from GOOGs new high-speed internet service takes hold. Remember they bought a lot of dark fiber from data companies going belly up following the dot com bubble. JMO.
