Google's New Stock Rises to $100 Mark

Trading begins in shares of the Internet search engine company Google. The much anticipated and hyped initial public offering of a small percentage of the company's stock got off to a late start.

The IPO was dogged by a series of company missteps in recent weeks and a lackluster market for tech shares, forcing Google to cut the expected pricing of its shares to $85, after initially setting a range of $108-135. NPR's Laura Sydell reports.
