Google's financial results come early and come with disappointments

Google's stock price drops 9% on news of lower-than-expected revenue and earnings

It's around that time again when companies report their third quarter earnings. Google is one of the earlier ones out of the gate and actually announced their earnings a few hours earlier than expected this morning. And, unfortunately, they were below expectations and the stock price has been decreasing.

Results fell short of the estimated earnings of $10.65 per share. Instead, Google only managed to pull in $9.03, which is a pretty big decrease (greater than 10 percent). Revenues were also lower than expected, though not by as much. They raked in $14.10 billion, down from estimates of $14.70 billion.

Stock prices have declined by 9 percent on the news of these lower-than-expected earnings.
