Should I Buy Microsoft's Stock or Google’s Stock?

    Should I Buy Microsoft's Stock or Google’s Stock?

    Google Has 1/3 Microsoft's Revenues and 1/4 Its Profits. Google’s Stock Costs 20 Times Microsoft Stock.

    Neither - Buy Real Estate ---- here is the test > Go to your lender (bank) and see which one they will lend you money to buy. Unless you place equity in your home up for collateral they wont lend money on stocks of any kind, but they will lend money for real estate. Think about that - if banks wont lend money for stock options but will for real estate, where do they think the real value is?

    The stock price is not relevant for a final investment decision.
    You could compare 5 year average of the following ratios.

    1. Return on equity (preferably higher than 12%) :
    Microsoft: 33.4%
    Google: 20.1%

    2. Debt/equity Ratio (preferably lower than 40%):
    Microsoft: 8.46%
    Google: 0%

    3. Price/Book ratio (preferably lower than 5):
    Microsoft: 5.76
    Google: 4.79

    4. Price/Earnings ratio (preferably lower than 10):
    Microsoft: 15.94
    Google: 26.51

    Both companies are comparable for the first 3 ratios, but Microsoft seems to be cheaper relative to it's earning power. To be comparable, Google stock should be trading around 325$ per share to have the same value as Microsoft.

    invest in silver! research it, its value is underscored but will soon be taken notice to, Gold as well, the value of paper currency is falling worldwide, 25 currencies in the past month
    http://hubpages.com/hub/Company-worth-t … hese-times , watch the videos here and decide. As for Google I believe they are spreding too fast to not fall eventually, what goes up must come down! Microsoft would have made you wealthy years ago, and like google both seem to be a buy and sell and buy and sell game, too much run around, when wiser investments are out there! Just my opinions, I have little experience in stock, but have watched precious metals for years, these metals have much to do with the economics of the world than most would believe! Don't sell gold in any form, hoard it and hide it!
