Google stock has not seen much movement during 2014 even with revenue growth of 20% last quarter and earnings growth of 14% during the same time period compared to last year. But the company has moved into a leadership role in the new area that is set to explode in the coming 5 years, the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart homes are thought to take IoT on a annual growth rate of 67% in the next five years. This movement to a $2 billion unit industry will out pace the current darling, mobile devices. This relates to a $409 billion revenue market in 2019 from the current %61 billion market today. Google hopes to be the leader in this market while still focusing on its core search business.

Why New Investors Should Focus On Healthcare And Tech Stocks

For the last 8 years, the rate of unemployment has kept on rising. On the other hand, the growth of industries in technology, energy and healthcare show an upward trend thus energizing the deteriorating economy. Amazingly, some sectors like manufacturing, which were reliable before are now perishing and taking with them whole cities.

During the few final years of Bush Administration and early Obama Administration people who depended on wages as their only source of revenue really suffered. On the other hand, a good portion of Americans who use alternative methods of revenue generation such as investing made more money. In fact, corporate payoffs rose to about 150 per cent as compared to 2007 figures. Many people fear to invest since they think investing requires a complex procedure.

Putting A Value On Yahoo!

The introduction of a new leader, Marissa Mayer, in July 2012 at the helm of Yahoo!, along with the disposal of almost 50 percent of its stake in Alibaba has allowed Yahoo! to re-focus on its main business.

Tax Avoidance By Google

In 2011, Google Inc. avoided some $2 billion of income tax payments by moving its revenues to a shell company in Bermuda. Google actually shifted almost $10 billion in profits from its overseas subsidiaries to Bermuda. Since Bermuda does not have corporate income taxes, Google benefited by cutting its tax rate by half.

However, this tax avoidance has not gone over well with Governments in both the United States and Europe, which are both struggling with huge deficits. Just recently, the governing body of the European Union requested its members to adopt rules for anti-abuse and to list tax havens for blacklisting.
