GOOG - What is price after it crashes?

Hi

My other GOOG questions have not been specific enough.
GOOG is around, seemingly, the approx. value it has historically crashed at.
After the IPO, it used to crash around $550. and now gets way higher.


With earnings historically up to, in to double digit $,
If it crashes, the volume flattens, and the EPS, earnings, grow again.
What is the price after it crashes? Will shareholders set it to sell at any price?
I think some answers in my other questions have indicated that it isn't going to crash?
I'd like to know the price after a crash, so I can consider how many shares I can acquire?
It was only after I did a blog that got some Ad income that I saw why Google is a behemoth.
I need to have GOOG in my stock pool.

Thanks

I don't claim to provide financial advice, nor will I provide specific advice. It should be noted that I do not hold a position in GOOG or GOOGL; nor do I plan to take a position in the next 60 days.

First, Google has two classes of stock traded publicly. The GOOG stock represents Class C shares where the GOOGL stock represents Class A shares. The main difference is that Class C shares have no voting rights. Google founders and executives own Class B shares that grants them 10 votes per share. As you can imagine, this provides them control of the company. You first need to decide if the premium to own Class A shares makes sense for you.

Regarding your question about investing in GOOG. Finding breakpoints in stock charts is not my favorite investment strategy. I wasn't really able to see the "crashes" in the GOOG stock chart that you were referencing. The ten year stock chart demonstrates steady growth where the graph goes up and to the right. The trend looks to be the investors friend. When you couple that with exceptional earnings and a favorable PE, I am not sure the crash to 550 will happen when the stock is trading at 628. I guess anything is possible, but GOOG continues to be a long-term play in my eyes.

The current market conditions are more concerning with China depreciating and the economic woes of Greece. The global markets are concerned and the American markets have felt that for six straight days. There is a fear in the market, which means pullbacks are prime opportunities to take advantage of the cheaper prices.

If you are worried about when to enter, try investing on cost basis where you buy when you feel it is reasonable and take another position when it falls...don't invest everything at once...It is a good way to hedge risk.

Good luck.
