Google’s parent financial report far exceeded analysts’ expectations and showed a resumption of advertising revenue growth after reporting a drop in revenue for the first time in its history. The situation was related to the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic, when many advertisers reduced their costs, especially in the tourism sector.
The third quarter saw a recovery in the online advertising market, which was also proved by Snap and Pinterest, announcing an increase in advertising revenue over the past 3 months to September 30.
Market analysts noted that the success of the 3rd quarter of Google was partly due to the growth of political advertising in the run-up to the November 3 US presidential election.
Alphabet reported earnings per share increase of 62% (compared to last year’s value) to $ 16.40, which is significantly higher than the average analytical forecast of $ 11.29.

Total revenue rose 14% to $ 46.17 billion, also above analysts’ expected $ 42.90 billion.
80% of Alphabet’s total revenue has traditionally come from advertising, amounting to $ 37.10 billion. That is higher than $ 33.80 billion a year earlier. Search engine revenue grew 6%, with YouTube’s strongest growth of 32% to about $ 5.04 billion, up from an estimated $ 4.39 billion.

The cost of traffic (TAC) was $ 8.17 billion, which is better than analysts expect of $ 7.66 billion.
Google Cloud’s cloud sales generated $ 3.44 billion, better than Wall Street’s $ 3.32 billion. Alphabet said that from the next financial quarter will begin publishing the profits of its cloud division, which will allow investors and analysts to “assess progress.”
Revenue for the third quarter from sales of equipment was $ 5.48 billion compared to $ 4.05 billion a year earlier.

Asked about the Justice Department’s lawsuit alleging a monopoly on the search advertising market, the company’s management said it considered the allegations “deeply flawed” and confident of “significant benefits to its search engines for consumers.”
