  • The cloud technology sector is actively growing. In the second quarter of 2022, this area of activity brought the corporation revenue of $6.3 billion. This figure exceeded last year's results by 36%.

❌ Disadvantages of investing in Alphabet

  • Because the company is a near-monopoly in Internet search, it attracts the attention of financial regulators who act on antitrust policy. There have been several precedents over the past few years. For example, the Attorney General of Texas filed an antitrust lawsuit against the corporation, accusing it of an illegal monopoly in digital advertising. In addition, Google was accused of collusion with another IT giant, Facebook.
  • Alphabet has to face high competition in different areas of its activities. The corporation has many smaller competitors in an online search. It also competes with streaming platforms and IT giants in the cloud computing sectors, such as Meta and Amazon. In addition, the U.S.-China standoff is causing difficulties. For example, the search engine Google has been blocked in China. Its market share in China has gone to Baidu.
