Google's lackluster earnings report leaks early, sending stock into a slump(Read article summary)
Google mistakingly released its third-quarter earnings report several hours early. And the results? Not good.
Google stock tanked Thursday after Google released its third-quarter results a few hours early – an apparent mistake on the part of the Mountain View company.
Worse yet, the results were widely viewed as a disappointment: Google's net income is down from $2.73 billion this time last year to $2.18 billion Thursday, while operating expenses have climbed from $3.28 billion to $4.81 billion.
