Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) down roughly 3% since the start of the year
Google saw its overall quarterly revenues jump 21% from $27.77 billion to hit $33.74 billion. More specifically, the firm’s top line not including Google Network Members revenues, climbed by a similar percentage to $27.16 billion. But this fell short of our estimate by more than $150 million.
Meanwhile, Alphabet’s adjusted quarterly earnings climbed from $9.57 per share to $13.06 per share, which crushed our $10.54 estimate.
Alphabet currently competes against Apple with its Pixel smartphones. The firm’s products unit also includes the new Home Hub. “Google other revenues,” which is made up of the Google Play Store, Google’s Cloud offerings, and its hardware business, saw its revenues jump by $1.05 billion, or over 29% to touch $4.64 billion.
Google’s “other bets” unit surged roughly 25% to $146 million. This business features Fiber, Verily, and its self-driving car segment Waymo. It is also worth noting that Google’s core ad business surged just over 20% to reach $28.95 billion.
Coming into Monday, shares of GOOGL were down roughly 3% since the start of the year, which includes a roughly 16% decline over the past three months.

A big black candle occurred. This is bearish, as prices closed significantly lower than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “high,” it may be the first sign of a top. If it occurs when prices are confronting an overhead resistance area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or price resistance level), the long black candle adds credibility to the resistance. Similarly, if the candle appears as prices break below a support area, the long black candle confirms the failure of the support area.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 23 white candles and 27 black candles for a net of 4 black candles.
An engulfing bearish line occurred (where a black candle’s real body completely contains the previous white candle’s real body). The engulfing bearish pattern is bearish during an uptrend. It then signifies that the momentum may be shifting from the bulls to the bears.
If the engulfing bearish pattern occurs during a downtrend (which appears to be the case with ALPHABET INC C), it may be a last engulfing bottom which indicates a bullish reversal. The test to see if this is the case is if the next candle closes above the bottom the current (black) candle’s real body.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 42.2385. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 10 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 32.34. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 11 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -243.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 2 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 15 period(s) ago.

ALPHABET INC C is currently 9.5% below its 200-period moving average and is in an downward trend. Volatility is extremely high when compared to the average volatility over the last 10 periods. There is a good possibility that volatility will decrease and prices will stabilize in the near term. Our volume indicators reflect moderate flows of volume out of GOOG.O (mildly bearish). Our trend forecasting oscillators are currently bearish on GOOG.O and have had this outlook for the last 15 periods. The security price has set a new 14-period low while our momentum oscillator has not. This is a bullish divergence.
