Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Experts Consider It a ‘Sell’

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) had brick-and-mortar retailers quaking in their boots about its disruptive takeover of retail. Many segments are worried. Advertising is next in Amazon’s cross-hairs. Amazon’s ad business is fairly new but growing fast, accelerating to triple-digit growth rates. Meanwhile, Facebook’s (NASDAQ:FB) and Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG)(NASDAQ:GOOGL) growth rates have been slowing. Is Amazon already making a dent in the ad business?

That 120-130% growth compares to Facebook’s revenue growth of 32% last quarter and Google’s growth of 21.5%. It was Google’s slowest quarter since Q2’17 and Facebook’s slowest since I can remember.

You see Amazon’s quarterly run-rate is now up to $2.5B which is much smaller than Facebook at $13B and Google at $33B.

At a 123% growth rate though, that $2.5B quarter will be $5.5B next year quarterly. That size becomes more meaningful as a competitor to Facebook and Google which, until now, didn’t have much online competition.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the downside.

The projected upper bound is: 1,127.55.

The projected lower bound is: 997.60.

The projected closing price is: 1,062.58.
