Global Regulations Should Help Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) Stock
Alphabet Inc (Nasdaq: GOOG, GOOGL) investors have kept a close eye on the global regulatory climate and its potential impact on Google’s advertising business. But analysts now say more regulation on data collection and usage will actually serve to help Google defend its dominant market share against smaller competitors.
According to Nomura Instinet analyst Mark Kelley, there are parallels between what is happening in the online advertising business and what happened to the U.S. banking industry following the 2008 financial crisis.
“With large audiences already in place, the large platforms are best positioned, in our view, and we expect the newly regulated industry to embolden these incumbents, consistent with recent history,” Kelley says.
Kelley says large, well-established companies like Google and Facebook (FB) are better equipped to handle the financial burden of regulation than their smaller competitors.
