Google stock reached a record high Friday, closing at over $1,000, a huge increase from the company's initial public offering price back of $85 in 2004.
"A lot of people say $1,000 a share, that's expensive, and you really have to consider things like the stock price compared to revenue, compared to profits," said Rocco Pendola, columnist with TheStreet.com.
"Google's a pretty good value," said Pendola, but he cautioned investors against chasing the stock because they missed it at $85, or $100, or even $700.
"It depends on your personal situation. (If you) want to make it a small part of your portfolio, probably not a bad idea even at these levels. But to say, 'My strategy is going to be to catch Google going from $1,000 to $2,000,' it's really risky for most people, particularly if you have retirements, college funds, first homes, those kind of things that your money depends on," said Pendola.
