Guru Investment Theses on Alphabet Inc

Mairs & Power Comments on Alphabet - Mar 16, 2017

Given the relatively small number of technology companies in our region, it is one sector for which we look at a broader geographic area to find exposure in the sector. One new name we added in the technology sector in 2016 is Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG), the holding company parent of Google, the leader in on-line search. While the company is headquartered outside of the Upper Midwest where many of our investments are located, it is an example of a stock that fits our investment approach in most other ways. The company enjoys above-average growth, maintains a durable competitive advantage globally and is attractively valued.

Gabelli Funds Comments on Alphabet - Aug 04, 2016

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (3.4% of net assets as of June 30, 2016) (GOOG – $692.10 – NASDAQ, GOOGL – $703.53 – NASDAQ) is the parent company of Google, which is widely recognized as the world’s leading Internet search engine. Google’s stated mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Google generates revenue by providing advertisers with the opportunity to deliver measurable, cost effective online advertising that is relevant to the information displayed on any given webpage. This makes the advertising useful to consumers as well as to the advertiser placing it. We believe this highly innovative and fast growing company is uniquely positioned to create new market opportunities while maintaining its lead in online search.

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG)(2.8%) (GOOG – $608.42 – NASDAQ) is widely recognized as the world’s leading Internet search engine. Google’s stated mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Google generates revenue by providing advertisers with the opportunity to deliver measurable, cost effective online advertising that is relevant to the information displayed on any given webpage. This makes the advertising useful to consumers as well as to the advertiser placing it. We believe this highly innovative and fast growing company is uniquely positioned to create new market opportunities while maintaining its lead in online search. Beginning October, 2015, Google will be known as Alphabet as part of a corporate restructuring.

Baron Funds Comments on Google Inc. - Nov 13, 2015

We think a phenomenon some investors refer to as “pattern recognition” is responsible for the strong performance of the shares of Google, Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG)(up 17%) in the third quarter. The company announced a change in the corporate structure and the creation of a “holdco,” appropriately named Alphabet, which would hold Google’s core search engine business and separate out its newer, less mature endeavors such as Google Fiber, Artificial Intelligence, Calico (Google’s foray into longevity), and others. Google veteran Sundar Pichai will become the CEO of Google, Inc., a subsidiary of Alphabet, allowing Google’s co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin to spend more time on Alphabet’s other businesses. We continue to believe that Google is one of the most innovative companies on Earth, with a powerful business model that benefits from the network effect, and the greatest collection of human talent in any one place in the world. Data is becoming increasingly more important and they own more data than any other company we know. We think the value of that data and its monetization opportunities will become more apparent over time.

Baron Funds Comments on Google Inc. - Aug 24, 2015

Google, Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s shares declined 3.9% during the quarter for no particular reason, in our view. Investors seem to be getting concerned that search is becoming a mature business and perhaps is nearing saturation (at least the desktop part of it). While this is something we are paying close attention to, it is not central to our investment thesis on the company. We believe Google is probably the most innovative company we know, with the best business model and the greatest collection of talent in any one place in the world. Data is becoming increasingly more important and they own more than any other company we know. We think they will find ways to monetize that over time.

Longleaf Partners Comments on Alphabet Guru stock highlight
Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL), (+10%; +0.74%), the diversified internet company with strong positions worldwide in search (Google), video (YouTube), mobile (Android) and more, was another contributor in the quarter. Revenue growth accelerated, and margins were better than expected. The company bought back shares and continued to simplify its Other Bets segment while growing its lead in driverless cars. The $2.7 billion European Union (EU) fine levied at the end of the quarter was a negative, but it remains to be seen exactly how the EU ruling will play out. Alphabet has been one of Southeastern’s best value-growers in recent years. While we trimmed the position slightly, we believe that the company’s core business growth will continue, YouTube and Other Bets offer additional harder-to-quantify upside, and the strong balance sheet with substantial cash provides attractive downside mitigation.
