    Make no mistake, when they offer a product for free, then you are the product.
    Google has done a great many things for our society but lately all of google's innovation is coming from acquisitions.
    This monopoly is hurting the consumers in terms of innovation and the seperation of society.
    No matter which government comes in power, I see considerable risk in teems of Antitrust in the US and even in EU.

    DOJ likely to file Google antitrust suit with no Democratic support

    The suit, the first major monopolization case in decades, comes as both Republican and Democratic politicians have been berating Google and other massive tech companies like Facebook and Apple about their outsize influence over the U.S. economy and their treatment of competitors.

    The Justice Department has been negotiating for months with a group of attorneys general from 48 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia about whether they can combine their separate investigations into a unified complaint against Google over its search engine. A strong backing from Democratic AGs could have helped the case make the transition to a Joe Biden administration if the former vice president wins the White House next month.
    While some Republican attorneys general have signed onto the Justice Department complaint, others have joined Democratic AGs in a group that is moving ahead with a separate complaint against Google, the people said, speaking anonymously to discuss the ongoing investigations.
    That bipartisan group of states expects to file an antitrust complaint challenging Google’s search practices at a later date, the people said. That group, led by Democratic attorneys general in Colorado and Iowa along with Nebraska’s Republican attorney general, has expressed concern about what they view as the Justice Department’s narrow approach to the case, the people said. Filing a separate suit would allow more leverage if the DOJ negotiates a settlement with Google they don’t like, they said.
    The Trump DOJ had hoped to entice Democratic-led states to sign on to the complaint in the hopes of avoiding claims that politics played a part in the suit's filing. Up to now, the Google investigations have proceeded on a bipartisan basis with prosecutors from the Justice Department and nearly every U.S. state.

    A third antitrust complaint, headed by Texas, that focuses on Google’s power in the advertising technology market is likely to be filed in the coming weeks. That suit has been complicated by bribery and improper influence allegations against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. The Justice Department is separately investigating Google’s control in the ad tech industry and could file its own case or join in Texas’s suit.
    Spokespeople for Google and the Justice Department both declined to comment.
    The number of states that will sign on to the Justice Department’s search complaint next week is unknown, as are its exact contents. Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, a Republican leader of the Google probe, however, has said he plans to join the DOJ suit and criticized state leaders who don’t plan to sign on. Landry and attorneys general for eight other Republican-led states met with Attorney General William Barr to discuss the suit last month and are viewed as the most likely candidates to join the DOJ complaint, the people said.
    The complaint is likely to include allegations that Google has used.

    GOOG on the rise and earnings this week will be reflected in stock appreciation.
    Bullish

    They beat earnings next week. I don't see how they couldn't. It is just a questions of by how much. The AVG EPS estimate is $11.18. Last quarter, the worst quarter of the pandemic, they delivered EPS of $10.13. Analyst are down right conservative if they only expect a 10% Q/Q EPS increase. I think earnings in the 3Q will increase by 20% to $12.15, beating the EPS estimates by 8.6%. PLUS a great guidance consider Google has received an enormous share of the record campaign advertising dollars. For those not aware, campaigns spent about $7B in 2016 and are on track to spend close to $11B in 2020. This Q3 will solidify a FULL recovery for GOOGL and massive set up for the future. The multiple $1800+ PT's are going to be revised upwards over the next few months and the stock will follow.

    I saw an article today saying Google is an illegal monopoly due to its search engine. I don't understand how that could be. I use duckduckgo to do all my searches.

    Google will pay some fines to regulators, cry a bit and we all move along after.
    Regulators also use information by big tech companies to analyse their civilians.
    Without big tech goverments have less control over civilians, so it's a win win situation. Don't see too much risk.

    Who ever is lobbying for MSFT is earning their money this year. First AMZN loses Defense contract to MSFT and now Alphabet's search under attack. Bing is number 2 in search.

    Trade is setting up. Buy dip when DOJ begins to prosecute GOOG. Sell when price RS peaks. GOOG will agree to a fine, price roller coasters again. Unlike MSFT, GOOG doesn’t have Melinda Gates (on board of Washington Post controlling DC politicians) on their side.

    GOOGL is about to rock their earnings. The market had it right this morning and the stock was up over 1580. Digital advertising has been on the mend since July and with political in September this is almost certain to be a solid quarter. GOOGL is smart, capable, and proven. Fears of breakup are misguided. IF a breakup does manifest GOOGL is worth MORE broken up than assembled. Investors cannot lose.
    Bullish

    SNAP is the preview of what is to come for GOOGL. Advertisers came back more than expected. SNAP has a fraction of the advertising that GOOGL delivers. Prepare for GOOGL to finally catch up with the other FANG stocks. GOOGL after hours movement confirms this sympathetic trade.

    If you play a game of profit making: what do you buy? A 1 in a million company or a 1 in a 1 company?
    Google is a 1 in a 1 company *on the western market* at least. Bought at 1435ish.. I can't complain.
