Google (goog) closed at  $396.63   -12.98 (-3.17%) it is easy to predict that this will close above $400.00 Thursday JUL 9, considering that it closed around $410.00 Monday JUL-6 after the anouncement that it will develop a PC Operating System. My guess is that the ensuing war with Microsoft (msft) willl produce some volatility in GOOG stock between 405 and  $420.00 for next 3 months as long as Googles anti-trust lawsuits remains NOT-Negative to Google. That is my prediction as a newbie, will see how it holds up.

Todays Term:/Word:

What Does A-Shares Mean?
Shares in mainland China-based companies that trade on Chinese stock exchanges such as the Shanghai Stock Exchange and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. A-shares are generally only available for purchase by mainland citizens; foreign investment is only allowed through a tightly-regulated structure known as the Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (QFII) system.

Typically, the most preferred tier of classified stock, offeringmore voting rights than Class B Shares. Class A shares are designed to insulate management from the short-termswings of Wall Street, by allowing those in management tocontrol a small amount of the equity of the company but still maintain voting power. These types of shares are notsold to the public and cannot be traded, which supporters of the dual-share system say allows management to focus onlong-term goals. In some cases, a company will designate shares to be Class A shares even though they have less voting rights, and designate the shares with more voting rights to be Class B shares; the decision is left up to theindividual company.
