Is Alphabet Making Progress in the Cloud Space?

Alphabet revenue in the fourth quarter topped $26 billion up 22 percent from the same period a year earlier

"Our growth in the fourth quarter was exceptional-with revenues up 22 percent year-on-year and 24 percent on a constant currency basis". Losses for the segment also fell marginally to $1.08 Billion, compared to $1.2 Billion past year.

Advertising remains a steady revenue source for Alphabet.

Alphabet has topped estimates in five of the past seven quarters. Despite this, analysts were bullish on the company's ad revenues going into tonight's earnings report. CFO Ruth Porat said Alphabet would "continue to calibrate the magnitude and pace" of its investments in other bets, and "exercise careful stewardship over the amounts and pace of investments". And the primary driver within that total was advertising sales, which climbed just over 18%, to $19.82 billion, or 88.3% of total revenue. The company's costs also tapped higher as it was invested in talent and the core business, according to CNBC.

As it stands, the majority of Other Bets revenue will likely come from a combination of Nest connected home products, Fiber high-speed internet, and Verily longevity solutions, with limited sales from the remaining bets like Calico life sciences products, self-driving cars, and Alphabet's "X" moonshot initiatives. Besides the surge in revenues from Google's other business, the quarter held few surprises, Husson said.
