Booyah, Jim! What do you think of Google's (GOOG) - Get Report decline today?-- Barry from Pennsylvania

James J. Cramer:

I believe Google should be bought off of this decline. The company is the market leader in paid search, and it isn't terribly expensive, at 38 times expected 2006 earnings, because it is growing at 30% a year. I believe that two years from now, investors who bought Google on this date will look back and smile.

Jim, is Xerox (XRX) - Get Report a dead stock?-- Sal from Florida

James J. Cramer:

Unfortunately, I don't believe Xerox is likely to go up much anytime in the near future, no matter who management brings in to run the company. The copy machine and printer business is extremely competitive, and there is no catalyst for Xerox on the horizon. If you want to play tech, look for companies that will benefit from product cycles, like

Microsoft

(MSFT) - Get Report

, which I have been buying for my charitable trust,
