S&P downgrades Google stock after Motorola deal

LOS ANGELES

The S&P says the decision to buy the company increases the risk to the company and its shares.

Google Inc. announced it was buying Motorola Mobility on Monday for $12.5 billion.

S&P is now recommending that stockholders sell their shares. It also cut its price target for Google's stock by $200 to $500.

Google finished trading Tuesday at $539.
