MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS/AP) – Google’s stock (GOOG) plunged Thursday after its third-quarter earnings report was released early, apparently by mistake. Trading was halted on Google shares after dropping 68 points – just over nine percent – to 687.39!
Google issued a statement blaming R.R. Donnelley RRD -1.38% & Sons Co., the company that prints its financial documents, for the early release and said it planned to hold its conference call with investors at 4:30 p.m ET.
