    Google parent Alphabet's market cap jumps above $700 billion for first time

    Google parent Alphabet Inc. on Friday joined Apple Inc. in becoming a company with more than $700 billion of market capitalization. Alphabet's market cap rose to $716.6 billion in early trade, according to FactSet data. Apple's current market cap is $813.1 billion, according to FactSet. Alphabet trounced estimates late Thursday, as profit rose $1.12 billion and revenue $9.5 billion from a year before. The company reported third-quarter net income of $6.73 billion, or $9.57 a share, on revenue of $27.8 billion. That performance destroyed forecasts, as analysts on average expected Alphabet to report earnings of $8.31 a share on revenue of $26.9 billion. In a conference call, Alphabet Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat credited mobile search, the Google Cloud Platform and YouTube for the beat.

    Alphabet heads for $700 billion market cap after earnings

    Google parent company Alphabet Inc. reached record price levels in after-hours trading Thursday and could top a $700 billion market capitalization if it holds the gains through Friday's trading session. Shares gained about 3% in late trading after the internet company announced third-quarter earnings that easily beat expectations Thursday afternoon. The stock would need a 3% gain for Alphabet to become just the second U.S. company after Apple Inc. to achieve a $700 billion market cap, after ending Thursday's regular session at $679.6 billion, according to FactSet. If Alphabet accomplishes the feat Friday, it would have been only 131 days since the company first topped $600 billion, according to the WSJ Market Data Group, which would make it the fastest $100 billion market-cap gain on record. Alphabet's Class A shares have already gained 25.1% so far this year, while the S&P 500 index has increased 14.4%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
