This is the kind of stock I want to own. Google was climbing very well before the recession hit. Its stock price certainly took a hit during the bear market, but has recovered nicely in the past year and a half. It is normal for the market and individual stocks to pullback briefly after such a strong recovery. Google's financials appear to be fine. This is a relatively safe place to buy the stock.
