Google Flexes Its Ad Muscles


Up today: Google's incredible potential to own the advertising triple crown of becoming the No. 1 display ad, search, and mobile advertising company in the world. Google is unseating Facebook with regard to display ads right now and continues to feed its virtuous cycle of more data feeding more targeting ads, which feeds better data. While cost-per-click rates have come down, it's being done at the expense of gaining market share in mobile, which spells a long-term win for the company. Andrew believes Google is still a compelling buy today and should continue to dominate for the foreseeable future.
