Why I Watch This Master Investor Like a Hawk
James Grover 10/4/2019 3:28:48 AM

#Google is listed as early investor, but so are #Alibaba, #Microsoft, and #Amazon. Not sure how much Google really owns, especially when prospectus says that we may compete with these same cos. Looks like NET has closer ties with Alibaba, so my impression is they aren't that connected with Google as much as article implies!

Google Has A Way To Grow Again
Alexa Graham 8/26/2019 5:13:41 AM

I think #Google is undervalued. It's got its hands in a little bit of everything and will only continue to grow. It's uniquely positioned to thrive. $GOOG $GOOGL

Trump Gives Huawei Another 90-Day Reprieve: Who is Desperate for a Deal?
Susan Miller 8/18/2019 10:47:58 PM

How can you be so sure that #Huawai's security flaws are innocent errors? I used to be that naive, but more and more I'm learning that powerful companies abuse their power for their own profit, at users expenses.

For example, you may recall years ago #Google's mapping vehicles "accidentally" hacked in to people's networks and stole their data. It recently came out, as per Bloomberg, CNN, and others, that this was not an accident, but was done intentionally: www.cnn.com/.../index.html

If $GOOG could do somethign so nefarious, why not Huawai?

Siri "Regularly" Listens In On Your Sexual Encounters, Apple Insists "Only For A Few Seconds"
Katy Lin 8/14/2019 2:36:19 AM

Unfortunately, we can no longer trust any of these big tech companies. They care nothing of our privacy or our rights. All they care about is money. #Apple, #Google, #Facebook, #Amazon.

Why You Think Your Devices Are Listening To You
Adam Reynolds 8/8/2019 6:10:57 PM

Actually it was "Don't Be Evil" and was in #Google's 'Code of Conduct' since the beginning. Until it was removed last year. I guess their new motto became "Don't be Hypocrticial" so the line about not being evil had to be removed.

Why You Think Your Devices Are Listening To You
Susan Miller 8/8/2019 5:49:21 PM

Absolutely Gary. I don't understand how there has not been more outrage about #Google. They were found guilty and supposed to expunge all the private data they stole from their users almost 10 years ago. They never did. And the cl;aimed it was an accident but it later came out that they INTENTIONALLY stole this data.

I think it's no coincidence Google dropped the "Do no evil" from their mission statement.

Carol is right. Companies are getting out of control and crossing lines knowing that if they get caught, they'll only get a slap on the wrist. I just read about how when #Google's Street View mapping cars passed by people's homes, they intentionally hacked into their wifi routers and stole users' private data. This was barely in the news, which is shocking! $GOOG $GOOGL

They knowingly stole users' info, kept it for years, and now only have to pay $13 million. Outrageous!

5 Monster Stocks To Watch for the July 2 Trading Session
Carl Schwartz 7/2/2019 1:42:51 PM

Some good stocks here. But I never understood the lover for $ROKU. To my knowledge all #Roku does is provide a line of products to watch movies and music over the internet. But the market is proliferated with such products, and there are many superior products by real market leaders like #Google, #Apple, and #Amazon. $GOOG $GOOGL $AMAZN $AAPL

Very Clever, Those Chinese Folks
Danny Straus 5/21/2019 6:25:37 PM

What about how #Google and #Facebook spies on us ever day? And for proof? Just have a conversation about anything and then look as you are shown ads about what you were talking about on your phone, or how the very question you were asking a friend is now automatically appearing in the Google search bar. That's downright creepy!

Google Tumbles After Missing Across The Board

Wow, bad news for #Google!

"Fess Up To Reality" - Former Google Exec Exposes Silicon Valley Hypocrisy In Scathing Essay
Cynthia Decker 10/8/2018 7:02:01 PM

I disagree. I've always thought it suspicious that tech giants like #Google and #Facebook, which have the greatest tech minds in the world working for them, can build amazing software, filters, facial recognition, search optimization, customized ad generators, translation services, and much more, but can't figure out a better way to combat fake news and hate speech. I've often suspected that either they didn't care enough, or simply didn't see the profit in it. Now that we know $GOOGL PROFITED from this behavior, it makes even more sense.

The Trump Tariff Put Will Expire Worthless
Moon Kil Woong 9/24/2018 5:06:06 AM

The market is not going up because of a #Trump put, it is going up because of the tax cut without a spending cut. This is called fiscal stimulus and it has negated the rather limited drop in monetary stimulus. If anything, the #tariffs and shenanigance in Washington over Internet regulation is holding the market back. If tariffs are cut and the trade war ends it will be a positive just like if the absurd hearings on #Twitter, #Google, and #Facebook end, that will help those stocks.

If or when this happens is debatable. Certainly if the whole market starts tanking, hopefully both of these will end and the government will focus on their job rather than creating more problems. Unfortunately, this is most likely to happen when the economy turns sour, providing limited relief, but most likely it will not turn the tide by itself.

Alphabet Betting On AI
Black Widow 7/25/2018 3:59:29 PM

While I understand that #Google has much going for it, I was a bit shocked that Wall Street completely ignored the $5.1 billion fine it was hit with for unfair practices. While I know Google is appealing, I don't expect them to win - they are guilty. And if they can no longer force phone makers to preinstall their apps, that will hurt them as well.

Should Alphabet Split Up Into Four?
Alpha Stockman 4/29/2018 6:07:26 PM

Splitting up #Alphabet (aka #Google) could really benefit them by letting them focus on their core. The company truly has become too big to handle. $GOOGL

Is There A Turnaround Play At Western Digital?
Danny Straus 3/25/2018 1:51:55 AM

I'm not convinced #WesternDigital has any sort of competitive edge. I had thought they were making an impressive early foray into video streaming and turning TVs into Smart, all in one devices. But they were quickly eclipsed by #Roku, #Amazon, #Google and others. $WDC $ROKU $AMZN $GOOGL

Bear of the Day: Pandora Media (P)
Alexa Graham 2/26/2018 4:12:45 PM

I like #Pandora, but don't see how they can compete against the giants like #Apple, #Amazon, and #Google, $AAPL, $AMZN, $GOOGL
