Piper Jaffray expects Q1 Upside for Google
As Motorola (NYSE: MMI) questions begin to reappear as the integration of the two companies near, Piper Jaffray has a strong belief that Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) will beat Street estimates of $8.13 billion in revenue and $9.64 in PF EPS.
Piper Jaffray stated this morning, “While we believe CPCs will continue to be down y/y, we expect slight upside to Street expectations based on strength in paid clicks driven by mobile, emerging markets, and new products.”
Piper Jaffray maintains its Overweight rating and $675 PT on Google, which closed yesterday at $626.86.
