Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Shayne ‘Jack’ Heffernan maintains a Buy rating

This week is shaping up to be an important one for Alphabet (GOOGL) as the Google Cloud Next conference will commence on Tuesday and go through Thursday. If this is to look like last year’s conference, Google is expected to announce new products and partnerships, perhaps including advances in cloud-based machine learning and AI.

Like much of the industry, Alphabet’s stock rose about 16% since the beginning of January. A strong start was much needed for the tech giant, after a 2018 that failed to impress.

Heffx CEO and Founder, Shayne ‘Jack’ Heffernan expects GOOGL to continue increasing, as he maintains a Buy rating and $1,310 price target, which implies nearly 9% upside from current levels.

All in all, there is no doubting that Wall Street loves Alphabet. TipRanks analysis of 28 analyst ratings on the stock shows a Strong Buy consensus, with 28 analysts recommending Buy, and only two saying Hold. The $1,351.68 average price target on the stock represents a 12% upside from current levels.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

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

The projected upper bound is: 1,248.80.

The projected lower bound is: 1,163.39.

The projected closing price is: 1,206.10.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 80.6355. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a buy 5 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 59.17. 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 sell 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 29. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 5 period(s) ago.
