Aggregate paid clicks were up 31% YoY and 13% QoQ.

Average CPC fell 11% YoY and 2% QoQ.

The search firm also announced that 'Motorola Mobile segment' revenues were $1.24bn, or 7% of consolidated revenues in 4Q, vs $1.51bn, or 11% of consolidated revenues last year.

Having said that, earlier in the week the company announced that it was selling Motorola to Lenovo for $3bn.

Naturally Google will be keeping the vast majority of patents it acquired when it originally bought Motorola.

How to Spread Bet on Google

How to Spread Bet on Google?

If you are going to speculate on companies like Google then one possibility could be spread betting on the Google share price.

Looking at a website like SelftradeMarkets, you can see they have put the Google Rolling Daily market at $770.86 - $772.19. As a result, an investor can spread trade on the Google shares:

  Google Trading Example Moving above $772.19, or
  Google Spread Trading Example Moving below $770.86

Whilst spread betting on US equities you trade in x per cent. Therefore, if you invest 4 per cent and the Google share price moves $0.38 then that would alter your profit/loss by 152. 4 per cent x $0.38 = 152.

Note that you can also spread bet on this market in Dollars or Euros, e.g. $x per cent.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so unlike a normal futures market, there is no settlement date. As a result, if your trade is still open at the end of the trading day, it will just roll over into the next day.

If your spread bet does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:

  Google Spread Trading Example Go up - then you'll be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Google Spread Trading Example Go down - then you'll normally receive a small credit to your account

You can learn more about Rolling Daily Markets in our article Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Google Rolling Daily - US Shares Spread Trading Example

If we consider the above spread of $770.86 - $772.19 and make the assumptions that:
  • You've done your equities research, and
  • Your research leads you to think the Google share price is likely to go higher than $772.19
Then you could go long of the market at $772.19 for a stake of, for example, 0.2 per cent.

Therefore, you win 0.2 for every cent that the Google shares move above $772.19. However, it also means that you will make a loss of 0.2 for every cent that the Google market goes lower than $772.19.

Looked at another way, should you buy a spread bet then your P&L is calculated by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

As a result, if after a few trading sessions the stock rose then you might consider closing your position so that you can secure your profit. Therefore, if the market moved up then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, might change to $781.26 - $782.59. To close your trade you would sell at $781.26. So, with the same 0.2 stake you would calculate your profit as:

P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
P&L = ($781.26 - $772.19) x 0.2 per cent stake
P&L = $9.07 x 0.2 per cent stake
P&L = 907¢ x 0.2 per cent stake
P&L = 181.40 profit

Speculating on equities, whether by spread betting or otherwise, is not always simple. In the above example, you wanted the share price to increase. However, it can also decrease.

If the Google shares had started to drop then you could close your position to stop any further losses.

If the market dropped to $763.89 - $765.22 you would settle your spread bet by selling at $763.89. As a result, your loss would be:

P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
P&L = ($763.89 - $772.19) x 0.2 per cent stake
P&L = -$8.30 x 0.2 per cent stake
P&L = -830¢ x 0.2 per cent stake
P&L = -166.00 loss

Note - Google Rolling Daily market correct as of 06-Feb-13.
