    Why is that? Microsoft seems to be getting tons of competition in plenty of areas, browsers, email, O/S, etc. Who's to say that one of their competitors might not gain most of the market, which means losses in Microsoft's shares?

      No, it can only be said for companies that IPO and manage to get to high stock prices.

      And speculation like this is rampant on Wall Street when a company IPO's and makes their employees a fortune.

            Microsoft have just paid out their first ever dividend too, so MS shares aren't all that great as they do not pay anything out - they prefer to sit on a large pile of billions of dollars rather than paying it out to their share holders.

            You may have missed the boat on that one.

            The main problem with the google IPO is that the employees are the ones who hold the shares/stock - which they would have obtained from starting to work with google before they were big, to entice people into a venture which may or may not have made money. It's also in the employees interests for the company to suceed and do well, as that means they will personally benefit. If the employees all cash in their stock, they'll end up shortening the amount of cash available to Google for investment, turn over a lot of staff, need to re-employee etc. This would be detrimental to their business.

            I personally think that the Google IPO thing is very over hyped, obviously the share prices will fluctuate - knowing when to buy and sell is the key to making some $$$ on them. After all, you could buy at $15 and the prices drops to $10.

            Imagine having 200 shares then?

                Of course, that's disregarding the fact that if you do the stock price calculations based on Google's actual accounting statements (not taking into account all the hype nor the expected gains from all the hype) you'll get a price per stock of about 1/4th of what it's currently priced at.

                (Given a desired RoR of 10%, with one year to grow, earnings growth rate of 10%, and EPS of $10.) = About $110

                Currently: Google has an EPS of 6.85 and a P/E of 55.84 (according to Yahoo Finance). If you use this data, along with a generous 15% for both RoR and earnings growth rate, in a one-year term, the estimated stock value is only $53. With a calculated P/E of 7.7. Go figure.

                (Also remember that Google has issued no dividends so far. And look at how long it's taken Microsoft to issue their first round of dividends.)

                  I raised some good bucks last year between Apple and Google.

                  Google is going down ? Good, just wait to buy or sell instead of buy. You can also use the system to "bet" two or tree times, I mean, you can earn or lose double if you want.

                  Nice game..... if you have extra money

                    I wouldn't.. Why? It isn't that much really. An average home in the area where Google has their headquarters will cost you $1 Million dollars. The region is still recovering from the DotCom Crash in 2000 as well. While it is recovering, jobs are still at a premium.

                    Of course, you can cash in your stock options and keep your job. Put the proceeds in a semi-liquid money market account or pay off the house. But wouldn't leave the job.

                        I wouldn't keep nearly a million dollars locked up in a single company stock but maybe thats my post-enron world thinking.

                            I am hoping for a $100,000 a year job a few years after getting out of college, and that's if I'm lucky. If I suddenly had $1 million basically in my pocket... well... alright, you win, I probably won't just leave, but I would cash in a lot of it for my own expenses
