Will GOOG Stock Split in 2017?

BUZ INVESTORS   Alphabet Inc Stock Split  If you arrived at this page by searching “Google stock split date 2017,” you’re probably a retail investor. But more importantly, you’re probably upset at Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:(GOOG). How can you be expected to dish out $920.00 for one share of Google stock? It’s absurd.

You want to own GOOG stock, of course, but only if there is a GOOG stock split in 2017. At least then it will be affordable.

The good news is that Google has split its stock before. Better still, other tech giants—I’m looking at you, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:(AAPL)—have also split their stocks in recent years. So it would be well within the norm for Google stock to be sliced and diced in the coming months.

I personally think it can help investors take advantage of stock splits, but you won’t hear financial “experts” talking about this on TV…

Why? Because you are not their target audience. Wall Street is their target audience. And when it comes to the price of a stock, Wall Street doesn’t know or care about the difference between $9.00 and $900.00. They’re investing millions of dollars, so the sticker price doesn’t matter.



 Alphabet Inc Stock Split

The same cannot be said for retail investors.

Many retail investors start off with tiny portfolios. They may want to anchor those portfolios with a technology giant like Alphabet, but GOOG stock is out of reach at $920.00 a pop.

That’s a real shame, especially because Google is still capable of massive growth. Don’t be fooled by its enormous size. There’s still plenty of gas in the tank.

How Dollar-Cost Averaging Works

Like I said before, DCA is a trick used by some of the greatest investors of all time.

All you have to do is resist the urge to buy all your shares in a lump sum.

The idea is to be patient. Load up on a few shares, then wait. Add a few more (or a lot more if the price drops) later on. Repeat this process until your investment thesis is dead.

Google Stock Split History

There’s another reason to believe we’ll see a GOOG stock split in 2017: Namely, that it’s already happened once before.

Google Stock Split History
Date Ratio
March 27, 2014 2-for-1

Here’s how it went down:

On March 27, 2014, the number of outstanding shares of GOOG stock doubled. If you owned 10 shares before the split, you owned 20 afterwards. But there was no change in your net position, because the price was cut in half as well. That’s how splits work.

It’s important that investors understand this. Stock splits don’t increase your returns in any way—they just alter the price you see on your trading platform.

Why Google Will Split Its Stock

Now you may be thinking:

“This is a dumb metaphor, Gaurav. No one in their right mind sells individual cigarettes. And even if they did, no one buys individual cigarettes.”

You’re right, of course.

Convenience stores don’t sell individual cigarettes…in America. They do in India. They do in Ethiopia. They do in lots of places where people aren’t as rich as they are in the United States.

The horrible truth is that not everyone can afford to buy a full pack of cigarettes.

Think about that for a minute, because the same concept applies to stock splits.

Someone making $3.5 million a year on Wall Street does not care whether Google stock tops $1,000. But you know who might be put off by it? The guy making $35,000 a year working on Main Street. That guy may feel like Google stock is too expensive.

As I demonstrated above, stock splits can draw in a whole new class of investors. In turn, this added volume can open the stock’s upside, thus leading to gains that would otherwise never have been achieved.

That said, the sticker price could look very different depending on the ratio of the split. Here’s a quick breakdown I threw together.

Ratio Approximated Price
2-for-1 $460.00
3-for-1 $307.00
4-for-1 $230.00
5-for-1 $184.00
6-for-1 $153.00
7-for-1 $131.00

Although a 7-for-1 GOOG stock split seems unlikely, it could be necessary. You see, Google’s co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, signed the Giving Pledge.

The Giving Pledge is a commitment for billionaires to give away most of their wealth to great philanthropic efforts. In a practical sense, it means that Brin and Page have to keep selling off their Google stock so they can give it away. But they don’t want to give up control of Google.

Guru Investment Theses on Alphabet Inc

GoodHaven Funds Comments on Alphabet – Jan 27, 2017

While hardly unknown, Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) continues to grow at a rapid rate for such a large company. Alphabet’s scale is staggering, with at least five applications used regularly by more than a billion people and the largest digital ad platform in the world. It also owns YouTube, which as a standalone business would be larger than most television networks, and Android, the most widely used operating system on smartphones and increasingly on other devices.

On an annual basis, the company is expected to generate close to $40 per share in earnings, despite still losing about $4 per share after-tax in its corporate venture capital investments. The stock is no longer cheap, but neither is it overpriced given its valuation, prospects for growth, and generation of free cash flow. Recently, for the first time, the company approved a significant share repurchase. With nearly $120 per share in cash and almost no debt, the company is in a unique position to be able to spend heavily to improve its business and benefit its shareholders at the same time. Its biggest threat would appear to be regulation rather than direct competition.

Buz Investors Alphabet Self-driving Car Unit Alphabet’s self-driving project Waymo is seeking an injunction to block Uber from using self-driving operations.

The motion for the injunction comes a few weeks after Waymo filed a lawsuit against Uber and the head of its self-driving division Anthony Levandowski accusing of theft of a key technology system.

Levandowski had joined Uber when the ride-hailing service acquired his startup, Otto, last year.

Waymo alleges that Levandowski stole the company’s proprietary design for its laser-based radar system. According to Waymo, before Levandowski left Google he downloaded 14,000 “highly confidential” files to an external hard drive, including the design for the company’s lidar circuit board.

According to Verge, Gary Brown, a forensic security engineer with Google, said that Levandowski downloaded those files using his personal laptop, which made it easy to track.

“When an employee’s device interacts with a Google service or is active on a Google network, those interactions and activities can be recorded in logs that identify the device (by its unique identifiers) and/or the interaction or activity (for example, downloading files from a secure repository),” Brown said.

Most of you have probably been on Alphabet’s “YouTube” web site. If you are like me, you’ll think that the platform is amazing, broadcasting almost anything you want to watch.

The service will cost users $35.00 per month, which is in line with what AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) charges for its “DirecTV Now” streaming TV service. Yet the initial rollout of YouTube TV will encompass only 40 TV channels, versus more than 100 channels for DirecTV Now.

And while the new service will likely not challenge Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), given the current format and price point, YouTube will try to reach out to the millions of people who currently pay for overpriced cable TV service. This could be a massive move by Alphabet if it can swing cable subscribers to its cheaper service.

Its version of a “skinny bundle” is launching with broadcast networks and their cable families, but notably not more independent nets — so no Discovery Channel, Viacom, Turner (meaning no CNN or TBS), AMC networks.

That will mean about 40 TV channels, including ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC as well as ESPN (NYSE:DIS). Ten sports channels in all will be included — a point of emphasis for YouTube, with sports being a holdout key driver for live television.

It’s got a Showtime option (NYSE:CBS), but no HBO (NYSE:TWX).

Programming will be live and on-demand, and cloud DVR capability will relieve pressure on users’ data bundles.

The $35/month covers six accounts, each with customizable profiles and recommendations.

The service will launch sometime in the next few months, and no international launch is planned.

(Source: “Google in Talks to Sell Its Satellite Business,” The Wall Street Journal, January 10, 2017.)

But the important point to remember is that any associated costs will get wiped off the company’s income statement. That is a really big deal for Google stock, not because this satellite business was terrible or anything, but because it shows commitment to shareholder value.

Since Waymo isn’t manufacturing the cars, but simply licensing the technology to carmakers like Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (NYSE:FCAU) or Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (NYSE:TM), it could become a profit center much sooner than other firms in the same industry.

We’re talking billions of dollars here. Put that in perspective with the imminent sale of Alphabet’s satellite-imagery business. What you’ll see is a company that is focused, a company that is slashing unnecessary costs and cranking up its earning potential.

Ten years ago, self-driving technology was a shadow of a dream, but then the AI revolution began. There are literally dozens of ways to cash in on this Mega-Trend.

Just look at what Google is doing in the U.K. It signed a deal with the National Health Service (NHS) to implement an AI-enabled app called “Streams.” This app flips through kidney scans to learn how diseases grow over time. That way, it can detect them earlier. (Source: “NHS to use Google DeepMind AI app to help treat patients,” Engadget, November 22, 2016.)

No individual patient data is leaked or divulged to the AI, because it learns from the patterns it sees. It doesn’t need to violate privacy. But, obviously, these services won’t come cheap. Hospitals and other healthcare institutions are going to have to pay up for these services, and Google stock (GOOG stock) will reap the rewards.

Send Google Stock Surging These kinds of transitions are exactly why. In the founding letter, Google founder Larry Page wrote: “Alphabet is mostly a collection of companies. The largest of which, of course, is Google.”

By Page’s telling, Google’s moonshot ideas would eventually outgrow the company, so the company needed room for them to breathe. Under the new structure, they could evolve into full companies and have their own chief executive officers, all of whom would still report to Page.

Now we’re seeing conspicuous hires to the driverless car team. For instance, Kevin Vosen was hired as the project’s chief legal officer. To the layperson, this hiring looks harmless. But Google X already has lawyers. The new hire, skilled as he may be, is a duplicate that makes no sense.

That is, unless self-driving cars will become a new company under the Alphabet banner. Other recent additions to the Google workforce also seem redundant. Why else would they hire a second “head of real estate” if not to make sure that the new division was staffed properly?

Future of Google Stock Depends

This is why Google stock has been left out of the “Make America Great Again” rally; higher interest rates are not favorable nor beneficial to growth stocks.

The Google stock chart above illustrates the uptrend that has supported the price since GOOG stock first went public in 2004. The uptrend is created by connecting the troughs on the price chart using a trend line. This trend line symbolizes the entire bull market in Google stock; a bull market that has traveled from the bottom left to the upper right on the price chart.

Google Stock: Growing Pains

As Google stock has been bouncing off of trend line support, it is also battling the 200-day moving average. The 200-day moving average is the dividing line between stocks trading in a bull market versus stocks trading in a bear market. When the share price is above the moving average, it is bullish. When the share price is below the moving average, it is bearish.

One camp will soon be declared the winner, and the price will dictate what happens next. I am concerned what a break of this trend line would mean for the entire growth sector.
