All Stock Deal Bodes Well For Quarter… ?

Posted: October 9, 2006 in Uncategorized
Google just announced they bought YouTube for $1.65 billion.  (Great piece by the always interesting business/tech writer, Bambi Francisco.)
 
But, here’s the interesting tidbit very few folks are picking up on:  It’s an all stock deal.  (Found by the love-him-or-hate-him-but-he’s-got-a-good-nose-for-this-stuff Henry Blodget.)
 
Since the quarter is closed, this probably bodes well for GOOG’s Q3.
 
Why? 
 
Because I can’t think of a worse way to get an important relationship off the ground than to give something that you know will devalue in a few weeks.
 
That, and, well, YouTube probably has some visibility into the 3Q numbers.  If they weren’t bullish, they probably would have taken some $’s off the table.
 
But they didn’t.
 
As always, it should be an interesting few weeks!
