It's just a couple hours before Google announces earnings for Q4 2006. So I'd better make my guess now. These estimates are for entertainment purposes only.
My estimate: $2.96 billion revenues, $750 million profit
Stock may open tomorrow between $520 and $525
Google is still taking share from Microsoft and Yahoo. Google's Q3 revenues were $2.69 billion. They are not going to decrease sequentially. Last year's Q4 they went up 22% sequentially. So I'm giving them a 10% sequential increase.
The Street consensus estimate (per Yahoo Finance) is: $2.19 Billion revenues, with a range of $2.05B to $2.31B.
As I write this the stock is trading at $503.45
BTW, Internet Outsider is running a contest -- enter your own guess. Or enter it here and tell me why I'm wrong.
