Motorola deal sparks worries over Google cash – MarketWatch
What is the analyst profession about to do? Google is one of the biggest cash cows in corporate America and that fact alone is not quite popular with everyone. A lot of people would love to see dividend rather than investment. The Motorola deal will not change anything about that fact. What should one do with that kind of cash. Investments, smart investments like this one are the best use of the resources.

Everyone agrees on the deal. A different financing wouldn’t change anything on the fact that Google now inherits 39,000 people and other expenses on the side. If the deal is so agreeable, this is the way to finance it, no question.
