Damn, Too Much Liquidity, Google

By - August 25, 2006


Bloomberg reports that because Google has so much cash (more than $10 billion and growing very quickly), it’s subject to SEC regulations as a mutual fund. Why? More than 40% of its assets are liquid, and Google wants to invest those funds in high yielding instruments, just like a mutual fund might.

Time to buy someone, Google…

    Wow, that’s an amazing position to be in. Any ideas on who might be bought out next?

    I could think of more challenging positions to be in! I bet the CFO wasnt too concerned when he found that they had the problem of too much cash ;-)

    Is that a “For Sale” sign I just saw pop up on this site? ;)
