Portfolio Review: Google

Over the next couple of weeks, John and David will be reviewing their real-money 10-Bagger Portfolio. In this video, they take a closer look at Google.

Google has been performing very well for the portfolio of late. It is, of course, the No. 1 online search engine, well ahead of Yahoo! and Microsoft's Bing. And its Android operating system continues to be the leading OS for smartphones, and an important piece of the future of search as the mobile computing trend progresses. Google is investing in all sorts of new ideas, from Google+ to compete with Facebook to its Nexus 7 tablet, which will give Amazon.com's Kindle Fire a good run for its money. For such a big company, there's still plenty of growth ahead of it. Today, investors are paying an attractive price for the growth of search engine advertising, while getting plenty of additional options for free.

Google competitor Facebook has been a big disappointment for investors so far. But there are things every investor needs to know about this company. We've outlined them in our newest premium research report. There is a lot more to this company than meets the eye, so read up on whether there is anything to "like" about it today, and we'll tell you whether we think Facebook deserves a place in your portfolio.
