Google Surges After Hours: Real-time Analysis

The headline numbers from Google were adjusted earnings of $12.01 per share and revenue of $16.86 billion. The EPS number is short of analyst estimates who were expecting $12.20 per share earnings on $16.75 billion in revenue. The stock initially flailed around to trip up as many after-hours players as possible, but as the conference call got underway, $GOOG surged as much as 5% from the close to new all-time highs.

Here’s the StockTwits community dissecting and reacting to the numbers and the price action before the conference call got started:
