Barclays reiterates an 'Overweight' on Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) price target of $750.00.

Analyst, Anthony DiClemente, said, "We believe Google will soon announce its own branded tablet, employing Chrome as its browser. Android's presence in tablets is minimal as the iPad currently owns ~95% of all tablet traffic (Chitika). We believe GOOG pays Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) a significant amount in TAC for tablet traffic, and expect this amount to grow as tablets could reach 10% of total Web traffic by 2014 (Adobe (Nasdaq: ADBE)), though this could be partially offset if GOOG were to launch a Chrome app for iOS. In our view, if a Google tablet using Chrome was to become a significant player in the tablet space and take material share from the iPad, it could help meaningfully lower Google mobile TAC longer term."
