The firm says that the co's Ecosystem has 5 main attributes: GOOG's size is developing new sectors as a derivative; GOOG's direction & partners should have a resounding effect on existing companies; the Ecosystem should act as selfreinforcing to the co; GOOG's hardware competency is underrated, and a significant advantage; and the Ecosystem growth should create an economic "lift" for GOOG

They believe these three cos also have the greatest potential for upward estimate revisions and multiple expansion

  • Rev Shark:

    Market Could Go Either Way -- and Fast
    1/4/2006 9:04 AM EST

    "The only difference between dreams and achievements is hard work."

    -- Chris Bollwage We started off 2006 impressively. After a shaky start the bulls put together a very strong intraday reversal and when news of the FOMC minutes hit, the momentum kicked into high gear. We had one of the biggest positive reversals in quite some time and went out near the highs of the day.

    Despite yesterday's very positive action, skepticism is high. Many don't expect this strength to last long. The thinking is that this is just some knee-jerk beginning-of-the-year manipulation, and that the FOMC interest rate posture was already well know and didn't justify new buying.

    Rather than hope and dream about which way the market may be headed, we need to do some work and dig deeper into the situation. The first thing we want to look at is the charts. The major indices are all somewhat similar. We had a slow rollover during the month of December and then a sharp spike up yesterday. That spike put us back over certain important resistance levels but we still have some ways to go before testing the recent highs.

    The key now is that the bulls prove that the sharp gain yesterday was not just a flash in the pan. They need to hold on to the majority of the gains and show some inclination to buy dips from this point. All they need to do is hold steady for a few days to claim success.

    The technical patterns are not ideal but are better than last week. The one-day spike back up is a start but the buyers need to show some resolve and keep on pushing. If they disappear and let the market slip back down quickly we will be in big trouble, especially because there is so little underlying support once we hit the lows we saw last Friday.

    We will have to be especially diligent now in monitoring the market action. We are at a juncture where we could easily get some momentum going and challenge recent highs or quickly roll over and take out the lows we saw on the last day of 2005. I certainly would like to see the market start a run but the move yesterday can't be totally trusted. If the bulls are ready to do some hard work they may prevail, but we will have to wait and see.

    Futures have reversed into positive territory after looking shaky in the early going. Gold is up sharply again, oil down slightly and overseas markets are holding steady. Google (GOOG:Nasdaq) was passed over for the S&P 500 club once again but an upgrade is taking some of the sting out of it.

    Position: No positions in stock mentioned
