The GOOGL stock price is up over 33% in the last 12 months, but the company is lagging behind in the cloud-computing war.
In fact, the tech giant only has 4% of the market.
Alphabet stock is the Money Morning Pick of the Week.
Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL, GOOG) is still better-known as Google, which now is a wholly owned subsidiary of the parent company created last fall.
The stock is up 26% over the last eight months as earnings have outperformed.
Alphabet Inc.'s Q4 2015 earnings surpassed expectations for both revenue and profits. That's great... considering the best is yet to come.
Analysts are having trouble with something Google calls "other bets" and the fact that those investments cost the company a whopping $3.5 billion in losses.
A lot of individual investors, meanwhile, find it hard to imagine GOOGL stock going too much higher, let alone a lot higher.
GOOGL stock climbed more than 5% this morning (Tuesday) to an all-time high of $807.94 after parent company Alphabet crushed earnings after the bell Monday.
Alphabet stock has hit a milestone only a select few companies ever reach.
On Tuesday morning Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), formerly known as Google Inc., dethroned Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) as the most valuable company on the planet following a strong Q4 earnings beat.
But what's remarkable is that Alphabet has reached this pinnacle with so much growth potential ahead of it.
A Google event today (Tuesday) served as a showcase for the tech giant's latest versions of its Chromecast streaming video device, its Nexus smartphones, and its Android operating system.
While the phones weren't anything special, the Chromecast announcements gave us a window into a much larger Google strategy.
How does Google make money?
Anyone who's ever done search on Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL, GOOG) knows it costs nothing to do so. The same goes for most Google services, such as Google Docs, Google Maps, and Gmail. All free.
Google stock faces yet another regulatory threat, this time from a new Federal Trade Commission antitrust investigation into the tech giant's Android operating system.
The FTC probe follows one in the European Union as well as several more around the world, including in Brazil and India.
Here's why these antitrust cases pose a very serious threat to Google stock...
After the close on Monday, Google Inc. announced plans to launch Google Alphabet.
Now investors are asking us, "What is Google Alphabet and how will it affect Google stock?"
Investors in LinkedIn Corp. (NYSE: LNKD), FireEye Inc. (Nasdaq: FEYE), Expedia Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPE), Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG, GOOGL), and Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) have seen significant share-price jumps this week.
Money Morning Capital Wave Strategist Shah Gilani joined "Varney & Company" on FOX Business Friday to provide a trading expert's take on a rapid-fire list of these noteworthy stocks.
Google is scheduled to report Q2 2015 earnings Thursday after the close.
The Internet search giant is expected to post strong results, but costs on new business ventures remain a key concern.
Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG, GOOGL) has been making headlines lately for its creative responses to the media. The tech giant has everyone in stitches.
Except for The Wall Street Journal and The Daily Dot, that is.
GOOG earnings were released post-market today (Thursday)...
Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG, GOOGL) reported fourth quarter earnings per share (EPS) of $6.88 - $0.20 under projections. Revenue came in at $14.5 billion (16.9% growth year over year), also under expectations by $110 million.
Our advice: ignore the bottom line miss. Ignore chatter about how Google's advertising has lost steam (the average price of Google's digital advertisements fell 3%).
Google Fiber is about to expand to four more cities: Atlanta, Ga., Nashville, Tenn, and Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, N.C. That's cause for celebration for those lucky denizens...
You see, the American Customer Satisfaction Index ranks Comcast Corp.- Google Fiber's main competitor - as the most-hated company in the U.S. in 2014. It was followed closely by Time Warner Cable Inc., another huge American ISP and Fiber rival.
In fact, customer satisfaction ranking in the ISP industry currently falls below the health insurance industry and airlines.
