The agency filed a similar complaint against the corporation in 2020, but the final decision can only be made in September. Also, it involved evaluating the activities of a monopoly among search engines and did not have a specific claim, and the current lawsuit is aimed at limiting the income of Alphabet Inc. from the advertising business, which accounts for up to 80% of all its profits.
The corporate financial report will be published on February 2: according to analysts, the income will be 76.6B dollars, which is much more than 69.09B dollars in the third quarter and could become a record revenue figure in the history of Alphabet Inc. Earnings per share (EPS) expectations are also positive at 1.18 dollars, up from 1.06 dollars previously.
On the four-hour chart, corrective growth continues due to the developing of the Head and shoulders pattern.
