Big Tech earnings: What to look for when Alphabet, Amazon report
Yahoo Finance Live anchors preview some of the biggest tech stocks ahead of their earnings reports, including Google, Amazon, and Apple.
BRAD SMITH: Let me take your attention to Alphabet or Google or AlphaGoogle, whatever you're calling them at home. Here's what to look out for here. And the options market's pricing in about a 5% move here. So we'll kind of track up against that barometer. But again, this EPS number, $1.20, that's what we're expecting according to some Bloomberg estimates. Revenue expected to come in at $63.2 billion. And that's ex the traffic acquisition cost, so keep a close eye on that figure particularly.
- I'm most excited for Amazon in particular because I think this will give us the best look at the consumer. We are expecting the slowest sales growth in more than two decades. How is their cloud product continuing to grow? And we'll really get a great look at how tight the holiday sales were, how their margins were. This is the best of the three in terms of a look at the consumer, Seana.
