Google Announces Second-Quarter Disappointment

Google posted its latest financials Thursday afternoon, and though second-quarter net income rose 35 percent, the company’s results fell short of estimates. The Internet search sovereign reported net income of $1.25 billion, or $3.92 a share, compared with $925.1 million, or $2.93 a share, a year earlier. Net revenue rose to $3.9 billion. Meanwhile, Google’s (GOOG) U.S.-paid clicks for the second quarter rose 19 percent from a year earlier, but fell 1 percent from the first quarter.

Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt described the the company’s performance as “another strong quarter, despite a more challenging economic environment.” Sadly, investors didn’t quite see it that way. Shares in the company tanked in after-hours trading.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
