    Google stock

    It's down around 38 bucks today so far. It's still 540 a share. Now is the time to pick it up but still very exspensive

    i am wondering about the market as a whole about to tank

    inflation is REAL now, the government can no longer hide the truth and keep interest rates so low

    once they start creeping up it will have a major impact on stocks imho

    This is the type of thinking that loses money on Wall Street long term. It's also part of the reason this country has the problems we do...ignorance. As much as we want to think the rest of the world NEEDS us....they would survive. The world is becoming less and less dependent on the United States

    Once the dollar is removed as the worlds reserve currency, our economy will take a severe blow. You think things as bad now just wait. Sell your house and rent instead (housing markets will tank), get out of stocks and dollars and buy metals and overseas currency. Do it before it's too late and panic sets in.

    You are basically saying the world still depend of U.S, but your killing the guy cause he said the same thing as u.
    BTW yea decisions or the problems that affect the United States have big, but very big impact in many regions of the world. Big impact in Latin America. So do you know why was the 2008 crisis? it was a global crisis, but yea it was mainly because of what happened in USA.

    Time to go short! By the way, Google looks way oversold to me. If you got in toward the end of the day you might get a short term bounce and profit.

    Short term I would buy Google over Apple. If you're an options trader, I think you can make a quick big profit from google.

    Thoughts on Google:
    a 22 P/E ratio is a little bit high
    Its in the middle of its 52 week range, I would lean more towards stock in the lower portion of this range
    On the positive, the percentage of short interest is very low. Its profitability margins are also very good.
    Balance sheet ratios are good. Doesn't pay dividends, but if it moved to it high you would make around a 18% return or so.
    With the thought on options, Options on high value stocks like Google are expensive, did you mean calls or puts? Either one could be reasonable to take at this point, but the expense of it makes it hard for people who do not have a lot of capital to trade.

    Thoughts on Apple
    18.56 PE ratio is also high.
    Its near the top of its 52 week range. Anyone who got in at 195 made an excellent buy.
    Profitability ratios are in the top of the industry sector
    Its price to cash flows is kinda high.
    On Apple, I would certainly consider the June 18th 335 strike puts currently trading at 20.05. This give a lot of time for the stock to sink lower in price and gives one the ability to get off of the option in case it looks as if the stock is going the other direction. If negative news stories happen on apple(Steve Jobs get sick) the stock has a tendency to fall pretty quickly.

    Google and Apple are priced about right. Both stocks should be flat for awhile. I would short Baidu when it hits $160.

    I don't know if it will tank but I do think we are in for a correction.

    I bought UGA at 47.50 (US gasoline fund). It's a fund that mirrors the price of gasoline in the US. I'm holding it until after Memorial Day when gas prices usually go up even more than they have in the last month.

    I meant calls. You can get a May $550 call for around $700. All the indicators that I've looked at show it is oversold, and I can imagine it will get around a 2% move upwards in stock price this week.

    I'm seeing 900 off of etrade. If you were leaning that direction I would consider the Jun calls on the 545 strike which are trading at 11. For the additional 4 dollars per you get an extra month and a lower strike. Seems like it would be a better value to me. Good luck on it anyway, if your are getting into it I hope I am wrong and you are right on it.

    They are trading at 71x earnings, 34x cash flow. Those are really high. Retailers tend to have higher ratios though.
