    Alphabet assumed with a Buy with a price target of $3,925 up from $3,190 at UBS
    UBS analyst Lloyd Walmsley assumed coverage of Alphabet with a Buy rating with a price target of $3,925, up from $3,190. The analyst believes that shares can see positive estimate revisions and multiple expansion on the back of faster than expected top line growth and margin inflection at Google Cloud, adding that his analysis suggests that the Cloud value attribution could add 7-12% annual tailwind to shares if this can be realized in the next two years. Walmsley further states that strong revenue and margins will become evident in Google Cloud over the next 12 months.

    Even with market down today didn't find much bargain, only add small positions for GOOGL at $2810. Will like to add MSFT, ADBE and INTU, but none of them has reached my buy zones. Need to be patient. Good luck longs.

    Google failed to honor 'don't be evil' pledge in firing engineers - lawsuit

    A group of former Google employees sued the Alphabet Inc unit on Monday alleging that it breached their employment contracts by not honoring its famous motto "don't be evil."

    In the lawsuit filed in California state court in Santa Clara county, former Google employees Rebecca Rivers, Sophie Waldman and Paul Duke alleged that they were fired two years ago for fulfilling their contractual obligation to speak up if they saw Google violating its "don't be evil" pledge.

    Their firings also have led to an ongoing National Labor Relations Board trial over whether the company engaged in unfair practices to stem growing worker organizing. Rank-and-file engineers and others working at tech companies in recent years have sought greater say over policies and projects. Management has pushed back, seeking to maintain control.

    The three former Google software engineers had raised concerns at town halls and other forums inside Google about the company potentially selling cloud technology to U.S. immigration authorities, which at the time were engaging in detention tactics considered inhumane by rights activists, including separating migrant children from their families.

    The workers considered the potential immigration work "evil" under Google's policies, which call for "acting honorably and treating each other with respect" and engaging in "the highest possible standards of ethical business conduct," according to the lawsuit. The company's code of conduct says workers who think the company may be falling short of its commitment should not stay silent, the lawsuit said.

    We’re including new warranty disclaimers and limitations of liability to reflect industry standards.

    Whenever you read "industry standards" it's time to walk away.

    $NVDA conversation
    What happened here? Fed gave news we all knew at the worst time possible. They cannot say anything else we don't already know. We will get a boost. We will get another slump once Omnicron is first diagnosed in the USA. When this happens remember, we all knew this was coming. Everyone knows it is coming and will cause a small skid like today.

    Once that happens, and Omnicron has been accepted as here and now, December - January will be the promised land! Big bump with a nice Santa Clause rally, shedding all this FUD everyone already knew was coming.

    Don't sell good companies because everyone else panics.
    In January - May we will be so glad we held!

    Finally get a chance to build positions in GOOGL, will add slowly.

    GOOG is an exceptional stock and will exceed your expectations.
  • B
    Looks like a double standard taking place. If there really is "new fears over need covid variant" then $GOOG, $AMZN, $FB, $MSFT should be taking off. They've all never reported better earnings or made more profit than they did through the pandemic.
  • S
    You don't know when and I don't know when but GOOG is sure to rise significantly so stay long.
  • n
    I think this is one of the most safest stocks to own

    Question? Why do you all pick GOOG over GOOGL? I only buy GOOGL.

    Sonos Case Against Google Gets Closer Scrutiny by ITC

    A U.S. trade agency is taking a closer look at Sonos Inc.’s claims that Alphabet Inc.’s Google infringes patents for home audio systems and is considering whether to shut some Google smart home devices, phones and laptops out of the U.S. market.

    The International Trade Commission said it would review part of a judge’s findings that Google infringed five Sonos patents and cleared product redesigns of any violation. Both companies asked the agency to review aspects of the judge’s findings that went against them.

    Specifically, the commission said it would review whether products accused of infringing two of the patents are “articles that infringe at the time of importation.” The commission said it won’t review remaining issues in the judge’s determination, and will consider a possible remedy, which could mean an import ban. A final decision is scheduled to be issued on Jan. 6.

    Sonos said the notice means that the administrative law judge’s finding of a violation will stand.

    “We are pleased that the commission will be affirming the ALJ’s ruling that all five Sonos patents at issue are valid and that Google infringes all five of those patents,” the company said. “We also look forward to engaging further with the commission on the details of the remedy to which we are entitled, and pursuing our damages case in District Court.”
