Google Stock Goes From "Buy" to "Sell" Following Motorola Acquisition

Not everyone seems to think that Google's Motorola acquisition decision was a good one. Standard and Poors, one of the biggest credit ratings agencies -- the same people who downgraded U.S credit -- saw fit to downgrade Google's stock rating from "buy" to "sell".

According to an article at Mashable, S&P equity analyst Scott Kessler sees the acquisition as an enormous risk which could adversely impact Google's "growth, margins and balance sheet".

He also thinks that buying a truckload of patents from Motorola definitely won't stop Google from being sued. So the question now is, what exactly is Google planning to do?
