Google Earnings: What to Take Away

Tech analyst Andrew Tonner got what he wanted out of Google's earnings announcement last week. Ad revenue increased 42%, although cost-per-click declined, and Google demonstrated stability from quarter to quarter. Google needs to find a better way to monetize its mobile platform, but the company knows the mobile space is where its future growth lies. At 20 times price to earnings, Google is still a compelling buy.

While Google has profited from the booming mobile sector, Apple remains the main player in that space.
