Let’s keep in mind that Alphabet consists of Companies including Calico, Nest, Fiber, its gigabit internet arm; and its investment divisions such as Google Ventures and Google Capital, and incubator projects, such as Google X.
Google is the only direct, wholly owned, subsidiary of Alphabet and it should be treated as such. The week has just started, but it seems that Alphabet stocks are off to a good start and day by day, the company’s share grow by the pinch.
