Google’s Got 15 Percent Growth Ahead: Mahaney

Google’s advertising revenue is on track to beat Yahoo and Facebook within the next three years, Citi analyst Mark Mahaney told CNBC on Monday.

Mahaney has an $850 target price for Google stock, based on a 15 multiple, he said on “Fast Money.”

“I don’t think 15 is at all an aggressive for a name that can grow 15 to 20 percent, and it’s also giving you great option play,” he said.

Mahaney noted that Google’s YouTube video advertising revenue alone was around $3 billion a year.

“That could actually surpass both Yahoo and Facebook in total display revenue within the next three years,” he said. “That’s part of the value in Google that we think that the market isn’t seeing.”
