GOOG EPS is up only 1% compared to Q1 2013.
Thats terrible.

AAPL EPS was up 5% last quarter and got smashed.

I am on a one day short play. Heavy ITM puts SPY (2 weeks out) at the close. Just looking for a one point fade in SPY before I bail and continue my bullish plays. I closed out my SPY Calls that I started accumulating since 4/10 or 4/11. Only made 25% but there were time where I was deep underwater and was saved by BTFD the pivot on Tuesday. Whee

GOOG is showing real weakness.

GAAP EPS was $5.01 vs $4.97 last year Q1. That's only 1% earnings growth. For some reason no one in the media is bring up GAAP EPS which is THE STANDARD for US companies for financial reporting. Rather they are using Google BS adjusted earnings that does not count Executive Stock compensation and the loss on the Motorola deal. Total BS.

Also the GAPS in Google's search empire is expanding.

1. FaceBook has its own search feature that is not running Google
2. Siri is not using Google
3. Twitter search is not using Google
4. Apple App Store does not use Google
5. Yahoo is talking with Apple to replace Google as iOS default search

#5 alone could destroy 30% of Google revenues and 40% of profits. Thermo Nuclear war indeed.

Lets not forget that Google cost per click has been going down for 10 quarters in a row because of shrinking PC use. Mobile ads are much lower margin.

hope you got out.

Whelp, I finally got out. Hopefully you made it out yesterday before GOOG contracted back to near $535.  I'd been watching google falling near the 52 low, but your post made me look closer so I must thank you.

GOOGL 560 Call sold yesterday morning well before earnings @ $14.29 - $480 gain.  I figured the ~$10 "premium" would evaporate after earnings whether up or down.
GOOGL 540 Put bought back just now @ $0.60 - $1860 gain. seemed like throwing away $60, but OTOH I don't really have enough funds to add a GOOGL position tomorrow if it ended slightly down and have only value stocks, so I got out.
Total- $2340

Overall it's been a great 2 weeks, since I also finally got out of my one "loser" stock position from last year at a slight profit during a short squeeze last week. Finally I'm "up" for 2014 by a meaningful amount (>10% on ~$200k portfolio), but still 1% off from early December.

  You do know that the "52 week low" for GOOG is actually like a 3 week low, since the stock split, don't you?
To find the true 52 week low you would have to look at GOOGL, which is no where near the 52 week low,

I do realize that, i should have been more careful with the post. The 50 week low is around $430 ($860). You're right that ~20% is not "that" close but they have grown ~20% Y/Y, so I'd consider it similarly valued.  And, that is a stretch from what I typed.  I definitely made an error when I said it was near the 52 low.

The 6 mo. low is near $500-$520 though. I should have went with saying near 6mo low.
