Alphabet shares down 5% after earnings fall short


Recommended Posts

Google and YouTube owner, Alphabet reported both earnings and revenues that were lower than analysts had expected.

The $7 billion revenue from YouTube in the quarter was lower than the $7.4 billion expected, and highlighted the advertising pressure currently facing companies.


Alphabet shares drop

Alphabet, which owns the Google business, saw its shares fall 5.1% in extended trading after it missed analyst expectations on both the top and bottom lines, hit by a fall in income from advertisers who are cutting costs.

Total growth of 6% marked the weakest period of expansion since 2013, other than one period during the pandemic.

These are the numbers: earnings per share of six cents over the dollar level. We had been looking at $1.28. So that was a big negative for the company. Revenue also came in shy of the estimates of $71.3 billion. We got just over $69 billion for Alphabet.

And look what damage that did to shares yesterday, not too far away from the recent lows we saw back on the 13th of October - all the way down at $95.07, closing at 9794 on the trading day yesterday.

YouTube, Google Cloud

YouTube advertising revenue was $7 billion. We'd been looking for $7.4 billion expected. So that's short, and this just highlights the problems that consumers are having. And Youtube uses a lot of advertising now as we all know when using Youtube channels unless you pay for the service you do get a lot of adverts in your face.

Google Cloud revenue came in at $6.9 billion. We had been looking for $6.69 billion. That's a touch better than expected and acquisition costs were on the way down.

But the net effect of all this was a drop at the close of yesterday's session, all-sessions on the IG platform, down 5.1% as at the close last night.

    • Bitcoin and other major crypto experienced a dip in value on Thursday, erasing gains made earlier in the week. The decline came after the Federal Reserve signaled that interest rates would remain high for an extended period, with Bitcoin retreating 2.3% to $26.5K. Despite the bearish pressure,  the founder and CEO of Bitcoin joint mining company Xive,  Didar stated that the stagnant rate increase is positive for Bitcoin. He suggested that this could reduce the attractiveness of mainstream financial assets to institutional investors in the long term, potentially driving a new rally in Bitcoin's price. Major altcoins and exchange tokens also struggled on Thursday, with ETH changing hands at $1,585, down about 2.6% from Wednesday. Other altcoins such as BNB and BGB also experienced losses. Despite these challenges, some analysts believe that Bitcoin is likely to remain within its recent range between $25,000 and $30,000. Riyad from digital asset data platform Kaiko, noted that the market needs a catalyst to mount any serious rally.  What are your thoughts? 
    • Traditional banking systems served as the gatekeepers of financial services for long, dictating how people access loans, save, and invest in opportunities. Typically controlled by a centralized system with a single authority such as a bank or government in total charge, this centralization is limited by high fees, restricted accessibility and slow transaction speed. Dentralized finance, DeFi, got introduced as a blockchain-based financial system that removes intermediaries or central authorities, and utilizes smart contracts instead. By eliminating intermediaries, DeFi delivers core benefits like improved accessibility into the financial system for everyone having internet connection regardless of their location. DeFi is also valued for its transparency. While traditional banking system often deny customers audits on how their assets are being managed, DeFi, through the help of blockchain allows anyone access to tracking and auditing transactions, thereby raising trust. Furthermore, DeFi also offers various financial services and products like DEX, lending and borrowing, stablecoins etc, all known to proffer varied innovative solutions, while operating 24/7 in contrast to traditional finance. DeFi isn’t flawless as issues like insecurity, lack of consumer protection etc are still prevalent; however, the growth of DeFi has been impressive; since its introduction, the total value locked in DeFi protocols has grown significantly indicating that the demand for DeFi services is fast growing. DeFi seems to be redefining financial industry by offering an alternative to traditional banking systems. With the increasing adoption, can we expect to see an overhaul in the way we access financial services?        
    • Leverage is good but please use it according to your risk management system coz the higher the leverage the higher the risk, I trade my perpetual futures on Bitget tho, the exchange offers high leverage but I only use according to my risk management system.
