A couple more analysts chimed in on Google this morning:
RBCM says it would not be surprised if GOOG reports a 20% jump in top line growth, though price movement in shares may be limited by pressure on margins from costs related to YouTube and Checkout.
AMTR says it's expecting solid results and doesn't find shares "terribly expensive" at current levels.
It will be quite interesting after the close. I have a small long call position.
The Lauriston Letter http://lauristonletter.blogspot.com/ and the Jutia Group http://www.jutiagroup.com/ have in recent days both noted a flag pennant formation on the Google chart. We'll see what happens this evening.
