    The IPO will be overrated and start at a much-too-high price.

    Don't get me wrong...I love google and think they are a great company, but there is too much hype surrounding their IPO because of this.

    I would like to own some google stock, but that will wait until it drops in price. And I'll also have to save $$$ to buy it...meaning *gasp* NO UPGRADES!

    The only way to do this right is to wail till the price drops and levels out after the initial offering........and then just treat it like any other stock....dont buy it just because it is google

    The company is currently over valued (IMO), and agree with sarumont that it would be better to wait until prices drop a little.

    Ok, so the company makes 1M gross profit /year, but thats hardly a lot compared with other long established companies that make 80M/year.

    According to Alexa run by Amazon - who are experimenting with their own search engine, A9.com, Google is the 3rd most visited website on the planet, Yahoo is 1st. (/useless info).

    Umm under what grounds would google go bust? With constant innovation? Updating? Useability?

    To tell you the truth, i believe the competition will get harsher, but until google isnt needed... that is, everyone knows every web page that exists... or google becomes no mroe then a toolbar on an internet browser...

    ahh im tired of that opinion. /post

    thats why you buy the shares on the same day they are realesed wait a week and then sell then you buy them when there realistic and it will be a good medium term investment
