First off I’m not a google hater but I don’t understand what google is doing as a business. Why aren’t they trying to expand their business? Amazon reinvests everything because they constantly see opportunities out their to improve customers lives. Amazon a couple years ago was worth half of google and now it’s worth $160 billion more than google. And now amazon is hiring more people for Alexa teams alone than what Alphabet is as a whole (including waymo, fiber, Youtube, google, etc). There are tons of opportunities out there and amazon will continue cashing in on them and I don’t understand why google chooses to not do the same. Google seems content on their existing ads cash cow and being a small player in hardware. If they keep this up they’ll be the next IBM.
Google revenue growth Q1 = 17%
Amazon Q1 profit = 3B
Google Q1 profit = 9B
Amazon age 24 years = 900B+
Google age 20 years = 700B+
At 24 years, it's a good bet Google will be a over a trillion (if not broken up first lol)
Revenue growth is even, 3x more profit, growth faster than Amazon over life of company. Google seems to be doing well imo :-)
