Update: Google Misses Q3 '14 Estimates


 Summary

  • Google reported Q3 '14 earnings.
  • Investors should continue avoiding the stock.

 Another quarter and another earnings miss by Google (GOOG, GOOGL), yet investors shouldn't ignore the typical pattern of the stock heading higher. The online search leader has missed earnings estimates each of the last four quarters, and the stock blasted off towards all-time highs prior to the recent market sell-off. The key tenant to the earnings miss is that the numbers continue growing even if the company doesn't hit the targets, due mainly to higher expenses.
