Google will host a series of “educational webcasts” for financial analysts and investors this fall and winter, starting with “search and monetization” in two weeks.
This is an interesting and surprising idea. We’ve never seen anything like this from an Internet company beyond their annual presentations at analyst day.
And it’s strange because while Google is often very transparent with its products on its corporate blogs, it tends to be opaque with its business and financial operations.
But perhaps it thinks if Wall Street and investors understand Google’s business details a little better, it may value the company higher.
Here’s Google’s release:
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug 26, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) announced that it will host a series of educational webcasts for investors and financial analysts through the fall and winter of 2009 and 2010.
