Stock in News: Google (NASDAQ GOOG) To Reach $1T Market Cap First

Google Inc (NASDAQ GOOG) is scheduled to release its next earnings report on Thursday. Analysts at BGC are expecting to see a 23% growth rate for Google’s core business in the September quarter. BGC analysts believe Google Inc may be worth $1,500 a share by 2020 and should be the first stock to reach $1T Market Capitalization.

In a report dated Oct. 10, 2014, BGC analyst Colin Gillis said he’s expecting Google to report total revenue of $16.7 billion. That’s a 4.9% growth rate sequentially and a 21.7% growth rate year over year. For adjusted earnings per share, he expects $6.62. The analyst is ahead of consensus estimates for both metrics. Overall consensus suggests revenue of $16.6 billion and adjusted earnings of $6.55 per share.

He estimates that Google Websites revenue will grow 23% year over year to $11.5 billion or 68.9% of total revenue. The analyst estimates $3.5 billion in Google Network Members’ Websites and $3.3 billion in traffic acquisition costs. He expects a 24% growth rate for Paid Clicks and a 4% decline in Cost per Click year over year.

Google Inc (NASDAQ GOOG) News:$1T Market Cap

Google will be the first U.S.-listed company to see its market capitalization surpass $1 trillion. That suggests that the search giant’s shares will be worth about $1500. Assuming Bloomberg’s 2020 consensus earnings estimate of $71.14 per share is correct, that provides a price to earnings multiple of 21 times, which is just slightly lower than the current multiple of 22 times its 2014 earnings per share estimate. The company’s current market cap is $382 billion.

The analyst notes that there are many risks between now and 2020 but said that he’s explaining what Google’s long term growth prospects look like. He points out that Google takes cash flows from its performance marketing segment and pursues other markets like content, robotics, enterprise computing, automation and operating systems.

Gillis particularly likes Google’s robotics efforts, which are led by Android founder Andy Rubin. He points out that although the search giant’s long-term investments usually “have a 10 year horizon,” he thinks the company’s robotic efforts could pay off sooner because of how quickly Google has been acquiring companies in the space.

The analyst noted that as of the end of June, Google had $61 billion in cash or $89.17 per share. The search giant’s long term debt was $3.2 billion, while cash flow from operations was $4.5 billion. He states that Google’s cash rose by $1.8 billion in the June quarter
