The next bellwether on the earnings docket is Google, with the hope that it should exceed expectations, but the stock has been in a steadily declining pattern of lower highs and lower lows since it hit its peak in early 2014.
from Jack Shafer:
"Don't be evil" -- the first sentence of Google's "Code of Conduct" -- has served as the technology company's corporate motto since its earliest days. But given Google's role in the arrest late last month of a Houston man on child pornography charges, perhaps we've been misreading it. Perhaps the motto is aimed at its customers, as in, "Don't you be evil or we'll have you busted."
