Options Update: A Look at Google Ahead of Earnings
Thread Description:

Schaeffer Research have an interesting and (to me at least) enlightening read about the mighty GOOG
comparing them to others such as Ebay etc.

As one of last year's hottest initial public offerings (IPO), Internet search engine behemoth Google (GOOG: sentiment, chart, options) is still managing to attract a considerable amount of attention. However, despite the stock's soaring technical performance since its IPO at $85 per share (GOOG is now trading in the $190 area), investors remain skeptical of the equity. Options speculators have targeted the stock's January 190 put in today's session, sending more than 6,167 of these bearishly oriented options across the tape so far today.
