Live coverage: Google’s Q2 results
The investor spotlight will land on Google’s profit margins and newly released social networking service Google+ on Thursday afternoon when the world’s No.1 search company reports its second-quarter financial results.
Rising expenses and a steady stream of acquisitions in recent months have eaten into the company’s margins, but the recent launch of Google+ may help take some of the pressure off the company for its spending and help Wall Street warm to CEO Larry Page, who took over at the helm in April. Check in Thursday at 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time (4:00 p.m. ET) for live coverage of the company’s results and conference call.
