Google stock hits new high as analysts boost earnings estimates

By Michael Liedtke, The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO -- Google Inc.'s earnings are growing so rapidly that not even the stock market bulls can keep up.

Blown away by the online search engine leader's first-quarter profit, securities analysts raised their already high expectations for Google and investors scrambled Friday to buy a piece of a company that's drawing comparisons to some of high-technology's greatest growth stocks of the past.

The fervor lifted Google's stock to a new high on an otherwise dismal day on Wall Street.

Google's shares traded as high as $224 on the Nasdaq Stock Market before retreating later in the day. By the time Nasdaq closed, Google's shares stood at $215.81, a gain of $11.59, or 5.7 percent.

Retire Here at TheWorld - Dubai

The same company that brought us The Palm Islands, Al Nakheel Properties (Nakheel Corp), have done it again expanding their portfolio of man-made islands with this latest Dubai island project shaped like the continents of the world. The World will consist of between 250 to 300 smaller private artifical islands divided into four categories - private homes, estate homes, dream resorts, and community islands. Each island will range from 250,000 to 900,000 square feet in size, with 50 to 100 metres of water between each island. The development is to cover an area of 9 kilometers in length and 6 kilometers in width, surrounded by an oval shaped breakwater. The only means of transportation between the islands will be by marine transport.

Construction has begun on the $US 1.8 billion project which is set to be completed by the end of 2005. It will be located 4 kilometers off the shore of Jumeirah, close to the The Palm Jumeirah, between Burj Al Arab and Port Rashid of Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Each island will be sold to selected private developers and are expected to have pricing beginning at Dhs. 25 million (US$ 6.85 million).

Owning Property on The Palm, Dubai.

The sale of The Palm Island properties (villas and apartments) are done on freehold basis, which entitles nationals and expats the right to sell, lease or rent their property at their own discretion. The free-hold property is tax-free, secure, and has sunshine the whole year round. Real estate owners and their immediate family, can obtain renewable Dubai residence visas, which can cost Dhs. 5,000 per person. Some of the properties available for sale on the Palm Jumeirah are the Palm Jumeirah Residence, Palm Terrace, and Atlantis, The Palm. Posted by Hello

I love to ski. Infact I decided to pass on university and ski instead. So I lived at Lake Louise in Banff National Park in a Camper at the base for years. After accumulating 700 days of skiing I decided that was enough and re-entered the real world. Do I regret it. Not on your life and if I had the choice I would do it all over again. I can remember those years vividly enough that I am writing a book about it. If it ain't fun - It's not worth doing. Its never to late to follow your dream though. Take the time and do what you want to do. Not what everyone else wants you to do. To this day I ski as well as I did then. Yod-a-lay-e-ho! Posted by Hello
