Google, Facebook and Amazon among the most searched stocks

Stocks such as Facebook, Amazon and Google (Alphabet) are among those that have given the best performance with exorbitant gains in Nasdaq history.

Performance often rhymes with fame, and in this regard the correlation was as pertinent as ever considering that CMC Markets has compiled research on precisely which Growth stocks have been the most popular on the Web.

Performance analysis of Google, Facebook and Amazon stocks

The research shows that the queen of the Web is indeed Google according to AHrefs monthly data, second is the evergreen Meta although with its former name Facebook and third is Amazon.

In the meantime, the Nasdaq scores +1.67% yesterday and the stocks we just mentioned also marked mostly green.

Google: Alphabet Inc Class A (GOOGL)

The stock of the quintessential “query” touches €90.64 (+0.81%) today and is enjoying the good recovery momentum.

Since the beginning of the year, Google (Alphabet) has recovered 10.12% recording a noteworthy performance.

Market capitalization is apical and touches $540 billion.

The last three quarters of last year Google reported poor performance that was partly due to its business model gone awry.

Difficulty in sourcing Adw and ads in general led to a very bad Q3 but the company is expected to recover from rumors about the quarterly report due out tomorrow.

Meanwhile, according to the Most Googled Growth Stock (MGGS), Google emerges as the most searched stock in Europe with a total of 394,250 searches per month divided by state as follows:

Andorra 50

Armenia 2600

Austria 22000

Azerbaijan 7400

Bosnia and Herzegovina 18000

Cyprus 14000

Denmark 28000

Estonia 5100

Finland 21000

France 86000

Georgia 5800

Germany 149000

Hungary 23000

Iceland 1300

Ireland 11000

Facebook (META)

The social par excellence was estimated at more than $1 trillion in value in September whereas now, aided by a conjunction of problems and continued losses in investment and advertising, it touches $340 billion in value.

Last October the company changed its name to Meta in line with new plans that will bring the social to the switch in the metaverse.

CEO Zuckerberg’s earmarked investments in the Reality Labs division, which deals with VR software and development, have not yet borne fruit, but it is normal for the manager and co-founder that the transition has not been smooth.

Profits fell from $3.22 in 2021 to $1.64 in 2022, a 50% drop.

Advertising revenue, the centerpiece of the business model of the Facebook name era and also derived from Meta-owned Instagram and WhatsApp social networking sites, is solid but down sharply.

To make up for these losses, the company has proceeded to lay off 11,000 people, corresponding to 13% of the workforce.

As for new hires, they have been halted until all of next March.

Analysts despite the critical issues believe that the mega investments made will begin to bear timid fruit this year and then explode in 2024.

Meta is forecasting revenue in the range of 4.7% in 2023 and Eps falling to 7.90.

On the stock market, the share price touches €135.82 in substantial breakeven and can benefit from a good 20% gain since the beginning of the year.

In the special Most Googled Growth Stock (MGGS) ranking it counts 202,200 Google searches, placing second.

The breakdown of clicks divided by country was as follows:

Albania 2200

Armenia 2600

Belarus 2500

Belgium 70000

Bulgaria 14000

Croatia 7400

Czech Republic 9500

Greece 25000

Italy 69000

Kazakhstan n.d.

Amazon (AMZN)

The stock is trading at €94.22 and has gained 22% since the beginning of the year.

Amazon will publish Q4 the day after tomorrow and analysts’ estimates are tentatively positive.

The trend in the long run is bullish, the recovery has actually begun since the end of the year.

Amazon has also resorted to the layoff formula (18 thousand employees).

The company last year lost 44% of the value, and unfortunately the staff cut was necessary.

Andy Jassy, wrote in an internal staff memo:

“We typically wait to communicate these decisions until we can speak to the people who are directly affected, however, as one of our teammates leaked this information externally, we decided it was best to share this news sooner so so you can hear the details directly from me.”
