TheStreet: Investing Strategies
First quarter GDP rose only 0.2% during first quarter, according to the Commerce Department, missing expectations of 1%. During the fourth quarter, the economy grew 2.2%. While cold weather tends to hurt growth, some economists wonder if the anemic GDP is attributed to more substantial factors, beyond colder temperatures. 'What we’ve seen is confirmation that the consumer doesn’t feel compelled to go out and spend money,' said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at the London-based CMC Markets. 'This is a trend I’ve been monitoring for the last four or five months. You can blame the cold weather if you’d like, but I only think that’s part of the problem.' TheStreet’s Scott Gamm reports from New York.

How Do We Value Google? Economic Growth Stalls as First 2 months ago   02:35

Google GOOGL revealed Monday Oct. 8 user data on google Plus accounts were exposed to third party developers.

Google said it is already solving the problem and that no exposed data was actually misused by those third parties. But that's not the point. It's no longer clear at all that data misuse in Facebook and Google is contained. And it's no longer clear that there isn't any data misuse. Facebook revealed recently that 50 million accounts were hacked, in addition to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

If there is tons more data misuse than has been revealed, there may be impending government regulation. That could put a dent in revenues. This begs the question of just how accurately Google and Facebook FB can be valued.
