    It’s hard to think of a company more dominant than Google’s (GOOG) market share in the search engine space. Even in a struggling economy, the company saw revenue rise 6 percent. However, that wasn’t as much as analysts were expecting, sending shares down.

    That’s creating an opportunity for investors today. The company’s industry leadership isn’t going away. And shares are now down nearly 30 percent in the past year, nearly twice as poor as the S&P 500’s performance.

Given the company’s consistent revenue growth and solid 26 percent profit margin, it can continue to bring in the cash. This is a name worth accumulating now and in the coming months amid this bear market.
