Enthusiasm for Google drains away as doubts set in

The Economist magazine has a story in their next issue entitled
Enthusiasm for Google drains away as doubts set in
. The article talks about the recent fall in the Google stock price after Davos and there is nothing earth shattering in the article but I was taken aback by the market chart they included in the article as I hadn’t realized how steeply the Google stock had fallen. The one interesting point that that article raises is about we value these Internet companies – Traditional model of 20x earning for a bricks-n-mortar company doesn’t seem to work for technology companies and a debate on valuations is sorely needed before Bubble2.0 implodes.

Here’s a shot from Yahoo Finance comparing Google, Yahoo, Amazon against NASDAQ:

Guess Yahoo’s not having a great 2006 either.
