Google "Google was scheduled to post third quarter earnings after the bell on Thursday, but unexpectedly they were released around 12:31 PM in New York, revealing a big miss on profit. The company also missed expectations on revenue." I have no idea if the figures are bad, and if so, how bad. I mean, missing analysts' estimates doesn't really say anything useful, does it?

Analysts and other reliable crystal ball gazers predicted stability and continued world economic growth all the way up to the point where the world economies tanked in the recent GFC. If you bet solely on their reading of the tea leaves you truly are a thrill-seeker. Good luck to you. I'm sure the same analysts saw great value in Facebook shares at the recent IPO. Me, I slaughter my own chicken and read the entrails for a reliable forecast.
