Google Nears EU Settlement, Microsoft Readies for Nokia Launch, and 3 More Hot Stocks

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG): An offer put forth by Google that would modify how it displays Internet search results may settle the company’s ongoing antitrust battle with the European Union, the EU competition chief said Tuesday. Several companies accused Google of blocking competitors in search results, and the formal investigation began about three years ago. Google proposed concessions in September, hoping that would end a case which could potentially see a fine of up to 10 percent of its global revenue, or $5 billion.
