350px-Schmidt-Brin-Page-20080520

Market capitalization for Alphabet Inc. peaked at nearly $731 billion, which translates into a share price of around $1,073 for the NASDAQ-traded security. The firm's price-to-sales ratio also outpaced the overall average of the technology segment. Investors have taken the total market capitalization and divided it by the company's sales figures to calculate this ratio.

How GOOG Stock Maintains Value

Alphabet Inc. doesn't offer a traditional dividend in the form of additional shares or any sort of cash payment. In fact, the exchange lists their dividend payout ratio as zero for the last year. The company's shares have traded over a huge range, however, which has helped to make money for investors. Over the last twelve months, GOOG stock has been trading anywhere from around $839 to around $1,187 at any given time.

Yandex

Owners of Yandex NV (NASDAQ:YNDX) benefited from a push upwards yesterday with a 7.25% increase in the stock price following an announcement that Russia's Federal Antimonopoly Service determined Google Inc. (GOOG) was guilty of taking unfair advantage of its dominant position in the search space.

Yandex NV (NASDAQ:YNDX), a leader in the search engine space for consumers in Russia, took offense to how Google Inc. (GOOG) essentially used a domineering posture by requiring Russian Android phones to have the Google search engine pre-installed. They were also found to give special treatment for where a number of Google mobile apps are located within their mobile operating system. Similarly, it was only in 2014 that a number of device manufacturers found they were unable to install Yandex apps on Android devices pre-installed in the same way that Google does today. The interesting distinction is that whilst Yandex controls 60% of search traffic within Russia currently, smartphone users see a different picture with Google controlling 86% of the Russian search market.

Google stock has not seen much movement during 2014 even with revenue growth of 20% last quarter and earnings growth of 14% during the same time period compared to last year. But the company has moved into a leadership role in the new area that is set to explode in the coming 5 years, the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart homes are thought to take IoT on a annual growth rate of 67% in the next five years. This movement to a $2 billion unit industry will out pace the current darling, mobile devices. This relates to a $409 billion revenue market in 2019 from the current %61 billion market today. Google hopes to be the leader in this market while still focusing on its core search business.

With this summer's release of Chromecast, however, many investors are wondering if they should change their stance on this investment opportunity. How will the release of Chromecast affect Google's viability? Will the Chromecast, the digital media screening adapter that is now the newest competitor of similar devices released by Apple, NetGear, and Logitech prove to be yet another reason to invest in Google?

Tax Avoidance By Google Raises Concerns In Europe

Tax Avoidance By Google

In 2011, Google Inc. avoided some $2 billion of income tax payments by moving its revenues to a shell company in Bermuda. Google actually shifted almost $10 billion in profits from its overseas subsidiaries to Bermuda. Since Bermuda does not have corporate income taxes, Google benefited by cutting its tax rate by half.

However, this tax avoidance has not gone over well with Governments in both the United States and Europe, which are both struggling with huge deficits. Just recently, the governing body of the European Union requested its members to adopt rules for anti-abuse and to list tax havens for blacklisting.
