  • 1. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We forecast 2Q gross revenue growth +17% y/y (+17% Street) for Alphabet (from +19% FX-adj. / +17% reported in 1Q). Our EPS estimates are just ahead of the Street as TAC trends and headcount growth moderate. We view shares as fairly-valued at current levels and believe the multiple is likely to remain range bound as the stock works through a deceleration digestion period with lower visibility into near-term revenue growth rates." (7/23/2019)
  • 2. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We remain constructive on GOOGL into 2Q earnings on 7/25, as our checks with marketers support our estimates/consensus, showing only a slight deceleration in the top line despite strong showing from Amazon and continued regulatory pressure from the EU and the US. We expect GOOGL to show above-industry y/y growth driven by strength in Sites (from both search and video (YouTube)), along with contributions from emerging areas such as GCP and hardware. We believe the stock remains reasonably valued at 11.5x EV/ EBITDA and 24.4x P/E on our FY19 estimates, and maintain a Buy rating. Expecting In-Line 2Q19 Results. We believe Google will report a relatively in-line quarter following a weaker than expected print in 1Q19. Our estimates call for a continued deceleration in net revenues to 16.6% y/y growth (from 18.6% in 1Q19) or $30.6 billion and adj." (7/22/2019)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Alphabet’s strong initiatives toward elimination of bad ads and introducing useful major search updates are tailwinds. Further, Google’s robust mobile search is also a positive. Also, its strong focus toward bolstering presence in the cloud market on the back of expanding data centers and robust cloud offerings continues to aid growth. Further, Google’s strong focus on the innovation of its AI techniques and home automation space is aiding its business growth. The stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to in the past one year. However, the company’s growing litigation issues and increased spending on YouTube and consumer gadgets might hurt its profitability. Also, increasing competition in the advertising business and currency fluctations are concerns." (7/8/2019)
