Guru Investment Theses on Google Inc

Chris Davis Comments on Google - Jun 24, 2014

Google (GOOGL), an example of a market leader in the Portfolio, globally dominates the business of online search with a market share of more than 65%. We consider Google a new generation media company with a business model that is exceptionally well positioned to capitalize on the continuing transition from traditional print and television media to Internet-based content and advertising. With advertising representing about 95% of its revenue, Google is one of the largest advertising companies in the world. Financially strong, Google is a cash flow machine with no net debt and ample liquidity provided by its substantial cash balances.

I hate to invest in large caps. It's my belief a dollar buys a lot more in the nano cap store. I'll keep shopping there as long as I can. Google (GOOG) (GOOGL) is one of only three large caps in my portfolio which is diversified across ~50 holdings. For me to venture into large cap territory, I must really like the investment.

Dodge & Cox’s Stock Fund Comments on Google
As the most popular internet destination in the world, Google (GOOG, GOOGL) has extremely high search engine market share in both developed and emerging markets: ~70% desktop share and over 90% mobile share globally. The company is well-positioned to benefit from continued growth in its core search business as internet penetration increases (currently at approximately 40% globally), users spend more time online, e-commerce expands, and more advertising revenue is earned online. Google also has meaningful non-search assets in display advertising (e.g., YouTube, DoubleClick), mobile (e.g., Android), and social (e.g., Google+). The company is led by a long-term, product- focused management team with significant economic ownership and a demonstrated focus on shareholders and financial returns.
