Baird believes investor sentiment for Google may be overly negative, exacerbated by the accelerating shift to mobile. The firm believes that 50%-60% of Google's revenues are already coming from Mobile, Video, Local Enterprise and other segments, which removes worries about desktop dependence. Baird also noted the company's valuation is at the low end of comparable multiples, suggesting a favorable risk/reward scenario. Baird reiterated its Outperform rating and $680 price target on Google shares.
