When a company’s stock price falls, how do you handle a loss?
The market is a game of luck, of chance, and of expectation.
But there’s one thing that can prevent a company from losing money on a stock: a company that’s not making any money at all.
The problem with the financial system is that it can only be used to make predictions about what’s going to happen in the future.
That means that, while there’s a lot of uncertainty around the future, there’s no way to know what the market’s going and what the future holds for your company.
This is what happened to Google, which in 2016 became the first company to be sold off by the government.
While the company’s valuation dropped sharply from $5.5 billion in 2014 to around $1 billion today, the company never made any money and its stock price remained in the red for most of the following decade.
It was this lack of financial success that led Google CEO Larry Page to call it the “biggest mistake” in his company’s history.
The next year, Page announced that Google was buying back $5 billion of stock in the hopes of making a profit.
But, even though the stock had fallen by more than 80% since 2014, the deal fell through after a bidding war between Google and its biggest shareholder.
The next big move Google made was to buy back all of its remaining shares.
After this initial move, Google would be the second-largest company in the world to be bought out by the federal government.
This deal was just the beginning of Google’s downward spiral, as its stock plummeted from $35.25 in 2016 to around just $9.25 at the end of 2018.
When the company finally went public in 2017, it was only worth around $40,000 per share.
Since then, Google’s stock has lost a whopping 95% of its value.
As Google’s value declined, its stock value dropped.
It was only a matter of time before the company went public again.
In 2018, the stock hit $40.75.
By 2020, it hit $37.85.
By 2021, it had hit $29.55.
In 2024, it reached $28.75, and by 2025 it reached a new low of just under $20.
In the end, the price Google paid for its stock was nothing less than a colossal loss for the company.
Google was a billion-dollar company, and it was doomed to failure for at least a decade.
So how did Google manage to keep its stock so low?
In the following years, Google made many changes to its business model.
For one thing, it started offering discounts to people who bought its services.
This allowed the company to avoid the huge losses it had made on its previous business model, which had been to provide a single platform for all sorts of apps.
Google also began selling Google+ services.
These services allowed users to share and communicate with each other, allowing Google to offer discounts to those who bought Google+ accounts.
And in 2020, Google started rolling out Google News, which allowed people to search for news on Google News by keyword.
This helped Google to continue to grow its business and build its business around a single news source.
By 2018, Google was generating $40 billion in revenue from its various business ventures.
At the time, it still had more than $1.5 trillion in cash and cash equivalents, and about half of that was sitting in Google’s bank accounts.
In 2021, Google bought back its remaining stock at $35,000 a share.
By 2022, it sold its stock for a mere $13.25 a share, with the proceeds going to pay down its debt.
In 2024, Google released a new product, the Google Assistant.
This product, which was supposed to be Google’s answer to Siri, was supposed be a personal assistant.
But it was still too much of a flop for Google, and Google decided to turn it into a competitor.
In 2025, Google launched the Pixel phone.
This was a huge step forward for Google.
It replaced the Pixel with a smaller and cheaper phone, which it called the Pixel 2.
But by 2025, the Pixel was not enough to save Google.
In the end it was a colossal failure.
The Google Pixel is now the most popular smartphone in the US, with an average of over 4 million units sold each month.
Its success didn’t come without a price.
The Pixel 2, which came out just over a year later, has since lost over 90% of all its sales since its launch.
And Google still has not been able to regain its former dominance in the smartphone market.
Google’s Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones have now become Google’s most expensive smartphones, and they’ve lost over 70% of their sales since their introduction in 2018.
And Google’s Pixel 2 is still selling for $6,999.99 in 2018, with some customers reporting that it
