Nasdaq: GOOG

Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG, GOOGL), formerly known as Google Inc. up until Aug. 10, is at the end of its third quarter 2015.

As remarkable as that sounds, Google's stretch into truly surprising areas is the real standout story of its third quarter.

Since the last bona fide financial bubble, the real estate and credit bubble of 2007 to 2009, it seems like every time anyone pays a few pennies too much for a stock, there is a flock of analysts ready to start crowing "bubble!" like so many birds on a wire.
