Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has been slightly underperforming the technology sector in general over the last two months. As we move into Q3 earnings season, expectations will be typically high for this All-Star of Silicon Valley, which could pave the way for some relative disappointment for those looking for another major burst higher.
However, the company’s business model is often in sync with the larger economy. And Q3 GDP for the United States overall is looking extremely healthy. That may lend to some strong performance and keep this stock trading above its 200-day simple moving average.
