15:38 GRU Gurunet: after gapping up on the ASKJ/IACI deal, stock fades to lows of day as traders possibly reflect on fact that co has revs of only $193K (20.15 +0.16)

To put this in perspective, GRU trades at a market cap of $92 mln (approx. 477x sales) vs LOOK (+13%) market cap of $102 mln (1.3x sales). For comparison purposes, ASKJ was acquired today for approx. 7x sales.

When I first saw Google sending loads of traffic to, I knew it couldn't last. Why wouldn't they provide the answers themselves. Well, they are on their way with Google Q&A. It's got a ways to go, but if you know Google, you know they will drop soon.

GRU: Recognized by Forbes and PC Magazine
Monday April 18, 9:35 am ET
- Reference-Based Search Engine Named 'Best of the Web' and Site that Web Users Can't 'Live Without'

WESLEY HILLS, New York, April 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GuruNet Corporation (AMEX: GRU - News), creators of, announced today that the reference-based search engine was recently named as a "Best of the Web" in the category of search engines by Forbes in the April issue (, in addition to being named one of the Top 100 Sites "You Didn't Know You Couldn't Live Without" by PC Magazine in the current issue.

"We are honored to be recognized by Forbes and PC Magazine," said Bob Rosenschein, founder and CEO. "As the search engine space continues to grow aggressively, we are pleased that is being acknowledged week after week for its delivery on its 'Answers, not Links' promise."

Forbes praised for its ability to one-up some of the larger, more well-known search engines because it "reads your search queries and delivers encyclopedic answers, in addition to Web links, images, translations, pronunciations and recent news about the subject." Also highlighted in the article is 1-Click Answers, the free add-on software where users can Alt-click any word in any program to get a quick accurate explanation of that word.

Noting that gives actual answers to questions, instead of "just a list of links to sites where you might find the answer," PC Magazine listed as one of the top education, information and reference sites on the Internet.

GuruNet announced on April 13 that had reached over two million queries per weekday, representing an increase of over 2000% since it launched its product and ad-driven business model on January 3, 2005.

Murdock is reported to be considering a search engine---------see partial release---------

Any opinions?

"Murdoch was responding to a question posed by Goldman Sachs' Anthony Noto, an inquisitive and thoughtful analyst.

"One area that you do not have a core competency or technology, from what I can tell, is search," said Noto. "Could you elaborate a little bit on your strategy to build a search that would enable the portal and the transfer of users across different areas of that vertical, and is this something you could build internally or externally?"

Murdoch's response hinted at the company's desire to look externally for its search. That's not a bad idea, given the host of independent search engines still out there."

From writer of article:

For instance, there is, which owns, one of the best resources on the Web. "

GuruNet (ANSW: news, chart, profile) carries a market value of $100 million. Then there is (MAMA: news, chart, profile) , whose market cap is $35 million. Miva (MIVA: news, chart, profile) , formerly known as FindWhat, is worth roughly $175 million. There is also LookSmart (LOOK: news, chart, profile) , which has a market value of $74 million. "

Will give source later.

The price drop was because guidance wasn't as good as people expected. However, IMO the business model is fully intact. I think that in Q3 and especially in Q4 we should really see some good revenue growth. For much more commentary, please look over on the InvestorsHub board which is located here:
