that was one really cool thing about Google...they didn't kiss ass and kowtow to the brokerage houses dunring the IPO (ie, they let actual Joe Schmoe have a chance at buying some of the initial offerings, rather than doling out chunks of buy options to the brokerages who pass them on to their best clients).

I currently own a dozen.


500 would be retarded, even at the original IPO price. It jumped $100 on the first day, as they had devalued it just before they went live. Figures that it would stabilize at the original asking price.

I love Google, but I see the Japanese are trying to muscle in with a large consortium. I imagine it would take a while for this to have any real effect, but if anyone has a chance of being a worthy adversary to Google, a consortium of Japanese IT companies would be a prime candidate. Keep an eye out.

Google rules in the mean time!
