Why I Like the Alphabet, Fitbit Deal

GOOGL GOOG +1 more GOOGL GOOG FIT

Why I Like the Alphabet, Fitbit Deal. When Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) first announced it was acquiring Fitbit (NYSE:FIT), I was excited to look at the deal. But it did not look good to me because of the small spread, only 1.9%, between the offer and Fitbit's share price. I also viewed it as a merger that could attract a lot of negative media attention because of both companies' reputation for data collection. The table below shows part of my dashboard, where I track most merger and acquisition deals that are ongoing, if you look at expected annualized return that's close to 20%. I do agree there's a risk as regulators are scrutinizing this deal, according to Reuters. However, this is clearly reflected in the near 20% spread.

4 Reasons Alphabet Will Survive Chrome's New Privacy Bent

GOOGL GOOG

In other words, advertisers won't be able to see all the websites you've visited before, nor know about any links you've clicked using Chrome. Privacy hounds cheered the decision as a victory, while some Alphabet shareholders worried the change could bite into Google's bread and butter business. Chrome is the browser of choice on about two-thirds of the world's conventional computers, and the preferred means of connecting to the web with more than 60% of the world's mobile devices. If Google's core product -- highly detailed data about an individual's internet history -- no longer exists, the company suddenly faces an uphill battle. It is a unique identifier of all the web traffic coming and going from your modem, but IP addresses can, and do, change on a pretty regular basis. As soon as you or your ISP create a new one, you've effectively been given a new digital identification that advertisers have never seen.

Sonos CEO Tells House Antitrust Panel Google Abused Power

GOOGL GOOG +3 more GOOGL GOOG TSLA AMZN GBPCAD

(Bloomberg) -- Sonos Inc. Chief Executive Officer Patrick Spence accused Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Amazon.com Inc. of using their market power to thwart competition a week after filing a lawsuit against the world’s largest search engine. “Today’s dominant companies have so much power across such a broad array of markets and continue to leverage that power to expand into new markets that we need to rethink existing laws and policies,” said Spence Friday at a congressional antitrust hearing in Boulder, Colorado, led by Representative David Cicilline, the Rhode Island Democrat who is investigating competition in the technology sector. Sonos, a 1,500-person company, sued Google Jan. 7 for allegedly infringing five patents covering multi-room audio technology. He said that Google tries to prevent customers from using its voice assistants alongside another company’s on Sonos speakers. While Amazon doesn’t go that far, he said, it has used its power to “to subsidize the conquest” of the booming smart-speaker market, particularly by under-pricing its offerings. Sonos has worked with the committee since before it decided to file the lawsuit, according to a person familiar with the discussions. Amazon said in a statement that PopSockets is a “valued retail vendor” and added: “We’ve continued to work with PopSockets to address our shared concerns about counterfeit, and continue to have a relationship with PopSockets through Merch by Amazon, which enables other sellers to create customized PopSockets for sale.”.
