Not a pro but..

on the Balance Sheet I see a $700 million increase in property and equipment in Q1
On the Cash flow I see a Capital expendentures of $842 mil
Less depreciation of $280 million

I am guessing that most of the depreciation is include in the cost of revenue with some for R&D, GA, and marketing.

What a remarkably capital efficient business they run.

You are a persistent little bugger, aren't you?
I'd say you can't tell yet. Sometimes holding cash is a good thing. If you bought where I suggested, then enjoy your profit for a bit and see where it goes. In the mean time, MELI. JMO.

I think you gotta wait until 625 before you consider GOOG a short. Not saying it'll get there but, that is where it bumps its head on clear resistance.

As far as I can see, all support lines are most stocks have long since been distroyed. This is new territory in my book. The buy when there's blood in the streets theory is sunk, because those people now ARE the blood.
Has there been a Sci-Fi movie made yet where the Gov't ends up owning all the companies because no one else will buy them?

everyone is comparing this to 1929, but i read something today that says it's more like 1873.

Oh, that makes me feel much better. Where was the DOW in 1873? I'm guessing it consisted of one stock?
I still can't believe they saw fit to lift the automatic triggers.
