Adsense Earnings Fall Sharply Ahead of Google Earnings Slump

Companies / Google Nov 12, 2008 - 09:14 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Companies Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the sectors expected to be hardest hit during the recession is advertising and in that respect the king of web-based advertising Google, is expected to experience a sharp fall in earnings for the fourth quarter. The recession is already being felt by thousands of internet web site publishers that rely heavily on google adsense earnings that are witnessing drops in earnings rates of more than 50% in recent weeks as Google passes on the falling revenues directly to publishers in an attempt to bolster its bottom line.


The expectation is that the recession will continue to erode advertising revenues which will be reflected in a continuing sharp drop in adsense earnings for web publishers that could in many cases lead to as much as 80% of earnings evaporating from the peak levels. Similar impact on revenues is being experienced across the web advertisers in a fallout on a similar scale to that witnessed following the dot com bust that could see many web publishers disappear over the coming 12 months as many dot com business were wiped out following the dot com crash.

Wall street analysts renowned for repeatedly getting it wrong on the earnings front are still way behind the curve and have yet to cut earnings estimates for google to anywhere near what the web publishers are experiencing as earnings revenues fall sharply, with typical estimates of $5.15 for the fourth quarter (2008 total $20) and $22 per share for 2009. However we could see these figures off by as much as 20%, implying $4 for the fourth quarter and 2009 coming in at under $18 per share.

The Google share price continues to suffer by breaking below critical support of 331, which now targets a longer term trend towards $200. Today's close of 291 represents a fall of 61% from the October 2007 high as investors continue to discount a recession. Consensus forecasts for 2009 earnings of $22 put Google now on a forward P/E of 13. However on the Market Oracle earnings estimate google stands at a forward P/E of 16. Which is a far cry from the late 2007 P/E of 40.
