Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) concerns over earnings and sexual harassment allegations

Shares of Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL), a technology company and parent company of Google, are down more than 3% since the start of November and over 1.47% to start the week. The technology giant is facing a negative response to mixed earnings and a dip in the tech sector.

Alphabet’s third quarter resulted in $9.19 billion in revenue and earnings of $13.06 per share.

Earnings performance shows a 36.5% rate of growth, but revenue expectations of $33.7 billion were not reached.

Allegations against DeVaul suggest that the company asked the woman to keep quiet while DeVaul stayed with the company.

Security vulnerabilities, namely with Google+, also show that the company has failed to protect user data and report data breaches in a timely manner.

Google stock remains down this year, falling more than 0.16% to $1,055 Monday with a 52-week high of $1,291.44 a share.

Candlesticks

A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 22 white candles and 28 black candles for a net of 6 black candles.

An engulfing bullish line occurred (where a white candle’s real body completely contains the previous black candle’s real body). The engulfing bullish pattern is bullish during a downtrend (which appears to be the case with ALPHABET INC C). It then signifies that the momentum may be shifting from the bears to the bulls.

If the engulfing bullish pattern occurs during an uptrend, it may be a last engulfing top which indicates a top. The test to see if this is the case is if the next candle closes below the top of the current (white) candle’s real body.
