    Google annouces IPO price to 85-95 from 108-135 and that they will float fewer shares...

    Can they get it done at this price level?

    What's your take? Other than sayonara for ValueClick.

    My take is google is over their head.
    Yahoo already owns 1/4th of their stock. They already admited to handing out stock before they were suppose too. Their ad technology isn't even theirs. I think google will start going down hill once investors start having a say in it's day to day operations.

    But will investors have a say in the operations? Aren't there two levels of stocks and the owners get the level that has two votes to everyone elses one?

    Go GOOG as the market today will judge the real sticky value of your search engine and Adwords. Nice to see Googles ego gets whacked down by 30%. Entry price 85-95 bucks.

    CNBC has some pretty good coverage of the IPO. Institutional investors don't seem to like it at all, apparently Googel isn't answering a lot of their questions.

    Like Mikey said, I think they are in over their head.

    If they gave out their algo to everyone who bought a share, it'd go for at least $1k/share and be sold out in about 10 minutes

    People dont want to buy them because they know the true value of their IPO price is not 135 nor 108 nor 95 nor 85. $1 each is much more realistic.

    I have no idea how all that stock exchange stuff works but I know I wouldn't buy into a new company starting out at 135 dollars a share. I'd wait out the initial ride and see what happens. Of course I do remember yahoo and could have made a mint but I think their stock was much lower to start.

    I also don't think google truely wants to be a public company. They've got too much to hide imo.

    This is like the Gmail thing. Everyone is hyped up about it and it will end up being nothing big.

    A lot of other providers have upped theire storage space immediately after Gmail was released. The rollout also took too long.
