GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Alphabet Inc is a provider of internet content products and portals. Its suite of brands includes Search, Android, YouTube, Apps, Maps & Ads.

Alphabet is a holding company with Google, the Internet media giant, as a wholly owned subsidiary. Google generates 99% of Alphabet revenue, of which more than 85% is from online ads. Google's other revenue is from sales of apps and content on Google Play, YouTube Red and cloud service fees, and other licensing revenue. Alphabet's moonshot investments are in its other bets segment, where it bets on smart homes (Nest), technology to enhance health (Verily), faster Internet access to homes (Google Fiber), self-driving cars (Waymo), and more.

Guru Investment Theses on Alphabet Inc

David Rolfe Comments on Alphabet - Oct 16, 2017

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has been in portfolios continuously since 2007, as the Company has invested in and developed more than a half-dozen digital content platforms, each with over 1 billion monthly users, to form the backbone of what is now the largest advertising franchise in the world. The Company continues to extend its lead, evidenced in its over 20% constant currency revenue growth for the June quarter, while generating 15% adjusted operating income growth. While traffic acquisition costs (TAC) to Google properties rose during the past few quarters, historically the Company has not managed margin trends as closely as they have revenue growth, and we would expect TAC growth to moderate over the next several quarters.

Alphabet continues to carry one of the strongest balance sheets in Corporate America, with nearly $100 billion in net cash and investments, a byproduct of the Company’s attractive profitability profile, which is on pace to generate $25 billion per year in free cash flow, along with a de minimis payout ratio. We do not think Alphabet needs this level of cash on its balance sheet to sustain its growth or value proposition, and we would expect the Company to eventually begin returning it to shareholders. We think this should benefit existing shareholders, as a new class of income-oriented investors is brought into the ownership fold.

We continue to hold Alphabet at a roughly weighted 6% in portfolios, roughly in-line with where it’s been for the past several years though, admittedly, below the 7% to 8% weightings of 2012, which saw the stock trade close to just 10X forward earnings on business model fears. Though Alphabet’s multiple has expanded quite a bit since those fearful days, it still remains attractive, particularly given its financial strength and continued high-teens revenue and profitability growth.

Longleaf Partners Comments on Alphabet - Jul 18, 2017

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.

GoodHaven Funds Comments on Alphabet - Jan 27, 2017

While hardly unknown, Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) continues to grow at a rapid rate for such a large company. Alphabet’s scale is staggering, with at least five applications used regularly by more than a billion people and the largest digital ad platform in the world. It also owns YouTube, which as a standalone business would be larger than most television networks, and Android, the most widely used operating system on smartphones and increasingly on other devices.

On an annual basis, the company is expected to generate close to $40 per share in earnings, despite still losing about $4 per share after-tax in its corporate venture capital investments. The stock is no longer cheap, but neither is it overpriced given its valuation, prospects for growth, and generation of free cash flow. Recently, for the first time, the company approved a significant share repurchase. With nearly $120 per share in cash and almost no debt, the company is in a unique position to be able to spend heavily to improve its business and benefit its shareholders at the same time. Its biggest threat would appear to be regulation rather than direct competition.

Baron Funds Comments on Alphabet Inc. - Oct 25, 2016

Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is the world’s largest search and digital advertising company. Shares of Alphabet were up in the third quarter, driven by quarterly results that surpassed Wall Street expectations. We continue to believe that even while desktop search is becoming a more mature business for the company, Alphabet is well positioned to benefit from substantial growth in mobile and online video advertising.

Baron Funds Comments on Alphabet - Jul 13, 2016

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is the world’s dominant search engine. In our view, Alphabet also happens to be one of the most innovative companies on Earth, with a vast array of initiatives and businesses ranging from YouTube to Calico (its foray into longevity). The company’s core business is a powerful platform that benefits from the network effect, economies of scale, and formidable barriers to entry. Most advertisers want to work with Alphabet. Data is becoming increasingly important, and Alphabet owns the most data of any company we know. We believe the value of that data and its monetization opportunities will become more apparent over time. The company is the Fund’s second largest holding, and the value of our investment has doubled in the time we have owned it. As big as it has become, we think Alphabet has a long and robust growth trajectory ahead.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Alphabet - Apr 22, 2016

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is a multinational technology company generally specializing in Internet related services and products. Alphabet’s core search business (Google) delivered strong operating results which eased investor fears that the company’s primary search advertising products would not be as relevant on mobile phones as on desktops. Alphabet’s shares rose, as investors priced in a higher rate of long-term growth, renewed operating expense discipline and the announcement of the company’s first capital return program. We opportunistically trimmed our position, as the stock price approached our estimate of business value.

Baron Funds Comments on Alphabet Inc. - Feb 15, 2016

We think a phenomenon some investors refer to as “pattern recognition” is largely responsible for the strong performance of the shares of Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL), up 43% in 2015. During the third quarter, the company, still commonly referred to as Google, announced a change in the corporate structure and the creation of a “holdco,” named Alphabet, which would hold Google’s core search engine business and separate out their newer, less mature endeavors such as Google Fiber, Artificial Intelligence, Calico (Google’s foray into longevity), and others. Google veteran Sundar Pichai has 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.

Google Inc.’s new corporate name is Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) With the change, the company instituted a new holdco structure that gives management more direct oversight over its newer businesses such as Google Fiber and Calico. Alphabet’s shares rose on the strength of fourth quarter results that exceeded Street expectations. We believe that even while desktop search becomes a more mature business for the company, the company is well positioned to benefit from substantial growth in mobile and online video advertising.

Longleaf Partners Comments on Alphabet - Jan 22, 2016

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (formerly named Google) gained 51% for the year on the back of a 25% rise in the fourth quarter. The company reported strong revenue growth year-over-year across the U.S., U.K., and the rest of the world. The bear case that the move to mobile search would be detrimental to revenues and market share seemed to fade. Mobile queries now outnumber desktop queries in important countries, and mobile revenue per click is improving. Alphabet segment YouTube’s growth remained strong, and the company announced a new pay tier named Red. Disclosure should improve with new reporting of segments in January. During the fourth quarter, a new share buyback program was authorized, further affirming the company’s attention to capital allocation.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Alphabet - Jan 22, 2016

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is a multinational technology company generally specializing in internet related services and products. Alphabet’s core search business delivered strong operating results which eased investor fears that the company’s primary search advertising products would not be as relevant on mobile phones as on desktops. Additionally, the share price also rose due to the company’s decision to provide more financial information on individual operating units beginning in 2016. We believe this is a positive move, as it may entail further disclosures of both the highly profitable Google Internet Services business and the company’s other venture investments. We trimmed our position during the fourth quarter as the stock price approached our estimate of business value.

Oakmark Comments on Alphabet - Jan 08, 2016

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (formerly Google) (U.S.), the leading Internet search engine, was the top contributor for the quarter, returning 25%. Alphabet’s share price reacted positively to third-quarter results in which both earnings and revenues exceeded market expectations. Importantly, the company also reported accelerating constant currency revenue growth of 21%. This high quality growth was the product of gains across all important segments; the fastest growth occurred in Google Sites (Search, YouTube, Gmail, etc.), which provide the company’s most profitable revenue. Alphabet’s mobile division also grew substantially, which eased concerns that the shift to mobile computing would harm the company’s profitability. We believe that Alphabet will benefit from a very strong tailwind as advertising continues to move online.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Google - Nov 06, 2015

Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is a multinational technology company generally specializing in Internet related services and products. Google’s stock price increased as reported earnings exceeded expectations due to better expense controls and accelerated revenue growth in Google’s core search businesses, where mobile search and YouTube showed particular strength. Furthermore, CFO Ruth Porat provided some hope of returning some of Google’s excess cash to shareholders. While we remain unconvinced that controlling shareholders Brin and Paige will return cash to shareholders as Porat’s comments suggest, we would welcome it as it would provide additional upside to our base case valuation. In addition, the stock price was also helped by the announcement of the creation of a holding company called Alphabet, implemented on Oct. 2, which will consist of several subsidiaries the largest of which will be the Google Internet Services (search, apps, android, YouTube etc.). Alphabet will hold several other companies that used to sit inside Google which represent longer term initiatives not directly related to Internet Services such as Nest, Calico Healthcare and Google Fiber. We believe this is a positive move as it may entail further disclosures of both the highly profitable Google Internet Services business and the company’s other venture investments.

Southeastern Asset Management Comments on Google - Oct 22, 2015

The portfolio’s largest contributor during the quarter, Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL), rose 17% on the back of strong operating results and an announced new corporate structure. The company’s core search and display business demonstrated healthy, accelerating organic revenue growth. The move to mobile search is helping Google, rather than hurting it as some bears had feared. YouTube is also performing well, as its average viewing session per user on a mobile device is over 40 minutes, up more than 50% year-over-year. Beginning in the fourth quarter, Alphabet Inc. will replace Google Inc. as the publicly-traded entity. Google will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alphabet, and all outstanding Google shares will convert into the same number of shares of Alphabet. This means the company will report two segments—the search and YouTube core business and all other business lines. Management believes the new structure will allow for more management scale and accountability as each Alphabet subsidiary will have its own CEO. Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Ruth Porat will remain in their same roles as CEO and Co-Founder, Co-Founder, and Chief Financial Officer.
