Google (GOOG): A Potential Modern Tech Empire

While analysts and students in business classes online have otherwise been keeping an eye on Google+, I do not believe that the market has come anywhere close to fully appreciating its value. Having recently acquired Motorola Mobility and Zagat, I see Google strengthening its position as a technology titan when it integrates its features into its social networking.

For clarification: By nature, I view myself more as an aspiring entrepreneur than a stock market investor. Accordingly, my valuation for Google has a special emphasis on "business strategy and direction" than what the typical Wall Street analyst might have. To be frank, valuing synergies in a potential business competition is more of an art than a science and can be susceptible to arbitrariness. At the same time, I do not think it would be fair to value Google without considering the upside it has for its upcoming business combination. With leading positions in the smartphone and search engine, I believe that there is tremendous amount of potential for value creation when Google+ becomes available to the general public.
