It appears my Google (GOOG – ???) blog from a few hours ago is null and void as GOOG released their earnings during market hours today with stock being halted to allow the information to be digested by the market. The situation is still fluid and we will get clarification on exactly what happened, but it appears the release came a bit early before the authorization was given to file the 8K. When this sort of thing happens a company should react by making information available to the public and that’s what has happened. As I sit in my hotel room in Atlanta trying to keep up with what is going on through conversations with Peter Lusk back at the CBOE along with the business networks, it does appear the stock should reopen before the day is over. Tonight, GOOG will have their conference call to discuss the results. I’m sure we will get the full story at that time!
