Google parent Alphabet: still strong despite economic recovery delays
FAANG stocks are well known to be the fastest growing bunch in terms of growth stocks. Amongst them, Google parent Alphabet continues to move forwards and upwards on a stable basis.
This is partially due to the stock being bullish about economic reopening as well as the increase in broad market. It was even pushed further after the Q1 earnings report was released, reflecting how well the company and its stock is doing.
Alphabet technically jumped from the start of April until its very last day. The bullishness it displayed is due to several factors; President Joe Biden's $2.3 trillion infrastructure bill, the successful and further accelerating rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, and the better than expected March jobs report.
Now all of these reflects the improvement of the economy, and Alphabet's performance as an advertising business is directly related to the status of the economy. Thus with the economic recovery ongoing, the company is getting more stable and its business more profitable.
Several trading analyst sees Alphabet as one of the best stocks on the list as more growth opportunities are present for it through the economic reopening. The April data shows that its revenue alone jumped by 34% ending at $55.3 billion, overwhelming the estimates of $51.7 billion, which is about the same as its revenue a year ago at the beginning of the lockdowns.
Interpreting this data, their operations income has almost doubled, and the company itself ended with $26.29 earnings per share, overcoming another estimate of $15.82. Its advertising business is steadily growing, especially in YouTube, plus the cloud services are also outperforming, with the revenue going up by 46% to $4 billion.
Alphabet shares are currently up by 33% and this tech giant is in the middle of splurging benefits with the upcoming economic reopening, which is already surging in advertising demands. It will not be surprising to see this tech stock marching higher as the economy is moving towards recovery and businesses starts to reopen to the public.
