So each one released their earnings for the third quarter of 2006:

Google Announces Third Quarter 2006 Results

Google reported revenues of $2.69 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2006, an increase of 70% compared to the third quarter of 2005 and an increase of 10% compared to the second quarter of 2006. Google reports its revenues, consistent with GAAP, on a gross basis without deducting traffic acquisition costs, or TAC. In the third quarter of 2006, TAC totaled $825 million, or 31% of advertising revenues.

Yahoo! Reports Third Quarter 2006 Financial Results

Revenues were $1,580 million for the third quarter of 2006, a 19 percent increase compared to $1,330 million for the same period of 2005. Marketing services revenue was $1,370 million for the third quarter of 2006, an 18 percent increase compared to $1,160 million for the same period of 2005. Fees revenue was $210 million for the third quarter of 2006, a 23 percent increase compared to $170 million for the same period of 2005.

Microsoft seems to not have released a Third-Quarter Result release dated April 27, 2006, but for the 2006 fiscal year which ended in June:

Microsoft Corp. today announced third-quarter revenue of $10.90 billion for the period ended March 31, 2006, a 13% increase over the same quarter of the prior year. Operating income for the quarter was $3.89 billion, or a 17% increase compared with $3.33 billion in the prior-year period. Operating income for the third quarter included $397 million, compared with $768 million in the prior-year period, for certain legal charges. Net income and diluted earnings per share for the third quarter were $2.98 billion and $0.29 per share, which included $0.03 of legal charges. For the same quarter of the previous year, net income and diluted earnings per share were $2.56 billion and $0.23, which included $0.05 per share of legal charges.

So Google’s net income + Yahoo!’s net income per three quarters of 2006 = Microsoft’s net income for a single quarter.

Thinking that $733 Million is the net income for the third quarter of 2006 for Google, one has to wonder: Did YouTube worth $1.65 Billion ?

I think YouTube doesnt worth 1.65 bi but looking at Google revenues, its not too much for a big brand like that

Currently, google shares are at $459.67. When they were at around $250, I thought that they are highly overvalued. The question now is: how big can / will Google become?
