This might seem a particularly bad time to be investing in big tech.

President Trump said Tuesday morning that his administration would look into accusations that Google has been secretly working with the Chinese military. The charge came from Peter Thiel, a PayPal co-founder and strong supporter of the president.

On the other hand, Bloomberg reported Tuesday that DeepMind, the artificial-intelligence arm of Alphabet, might be on the cusp of a major breakthrough in the way new drugs are discovered.

It’s an important innovation. It’s hiding inside the search giant. And it couldn’t come at a better time.

This business is on to something really big. Using data, machine learning and AI, Alphabet managers are incubating vibrant new businesses with innovative business models. One or more of these will become exciting stand-alone businesses.

Some analysts are already doing sum-of-the-parts analyses and they like what they see.

Alphabet’s market capitalization is $798 billion, with units including YouTube, Google Search, Google Cloud, Android, the Nest security camera and peripheral businesses, Google Capital, and Stadia, its new video game streaming service set to launch in November.

Together, these parts are probably worth well over $1 trillion.

Until now, the business opportunity for DeepMind was not even on investors’ radar.

The subsidiary has its roots in DeepMind Technologies, a British AI startup that was making progress teaching computers the quirks of human short-term memory. Alphabet acquired the business in 2014.

DeepMind has come out of nowhere to be a major player in that ecosystem, and it is hiding inside Alphabet shares, practically for free.

The parent’s stock trades at 21 times forward earnings and 5.6 times sales. These metrics reflect the consensus view that Alphabet is an advertising business, subject to regulatory attacks.

The regulation is coming. That’s true.

But the story of the stock is its valuable pieces. Investors are fretting about a potential breakup of Alphabet. They should be embracing that possibility. It will lead to much higher stock prices as the value of its businesses comes to light.
