Alphabet Q3 Misses Expectations as Macroeconomic Uncertainty Hits Ad Revenue; Shares Undervalued

Ali Mogharabi Senior Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Ali Mogharabi |

Alphabet dominates the online search market with 80%-plus global share for Google, via which it generates strong revenue growth and cash flow. We expect continuing growth in the firm’s cash flow, as we remain confident that Google will maintain its leadership in search. We foresee YouTube contributing more to the firm’s top and bottom lines, and we view investments of some of that cash in moonshots as attractive. Whether they will generate positive returns remains to be seen, but they do present significant upside.

Sales of hardware such as Chromebooks, the Pixel smartphone, and smart home products, which include Nest and Google Home, also contribute to other revenue.
