Oppenheimer lifted its price target on Outperform-rated Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) from $752 to $800 ahead of third quarter results on 10/18.

Analyst Jason Helfstein expects Google to report results slightly above consensus.

"Our estimates call for US core revenues to slow 200 bps vs. 2Q on a slightly harder comp, with Int'l revenues slowing 400 bps. Our net revenue estimate is 4% above the Street," he comments. "While we have been critical of third-party data in the past, a larger sample size is supportive of strong results. CPC pricing appears to be improving, with total spending accelerating. Mobile probably had a -200 bps y/y impact compared to 2Q."
