Google reports better than expected earnings

Google posted second-quarter net income of $3.93 billion, or $6.43 per Class C share, up from $3.35 billion, or $ 4.88 per Class C share, a year earlier. Excluding certain costs, the company had earnings of $6.99 a share in the latest quarter; analysts had projected earnings of $6.70 per share on that basis, according to Thomson Reuters.

Revenue rose 11% to $17.73 billion. Excluding traffic-acquisition costs–the revenue Google shares with other companies that syndicate its search results–revenue totaled $14.35 billion, above the average analyst forecast of $ 14.27 billion.

Shares of Google, up 1.9% over the past 12 months, rose 7.6% to $647.50 in after-hours trading.
