Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Google Antes Up e-Commerce Gamble
Regardless of how you feel about technology stocks, everyone can agree that Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)—formerly known as Google—is one of the greatest investment stories of our time.
The numbers don’t lie. Quick arithmetic reveals that anyone who invested $10,000 in 2004 would have more than $200,000 today. Anything over $50,000 could have made you a millionaire.
But does that mean you should invest in GOOG stock today? Or has this tech giant run out of steam?
We got some insight into this question when Google recently announced that it would be investing $550.0 million into JD.com Inc (NASDAQ:JD). (Source: “A strategic partnership with JD.com,” The Keyword, June 18, 2018.)
For those in the dark, JD.com is a Chinese version of Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), with more than 301 million active users.
I know that Google often makes investments into promising companies, but this was different. It was not a random act. And to be entirely honest, I think it could send Google stock skyrocketing into uncharted territory.
