06:50 EDTAAPLPiper sees two catalysts for Google shares in 2015
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says near-term investor concerns with regards to Google (GOOG) shares are overblown. Munster thinks investors are concerned that Google will lose its search deal with Apple’s (AAPL) Safari and that the search giant’s investments have pressured margins. He believes, however, that if Google were to lose Safari, the company will likely gain back that lost share within a year. Further, Munster believes Google's investments in robotics, self-driving cars, fiber, wireless and augmented reality will yield longer term revenue growth. The analyst views the resolution of the Safari deal and the possibility for cost-per-clicks turning positive for the first time since September 2011 as catalysts for the stock in 2015. Munster reiterates an Overweight rating on Google with a $630 price target. The stock closed Tuesday up $3.77 to $578.79.
