If big tech is about to get split, consider Alphabet stock

Antitrust actions among corporations, particularly those in the tech industry, have received increased attention recently. Many politicians are explicitly calling for the breakup of some of the biggest tech companies out there.

Alphabet is one of many firms targeted by government officials for antitrust scrutiny, even under the administration of supposedly business-friendly President Donald Trump. It is believed that the Justice Department will soon file an antitrust suit against Alphabet related to its dominance in internet search.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has stopped short of saying he would break up any company over alleged antitrust actions. Nonetheless, Biden has called for more stringent antitrust scrutiny. The possibility of such actions fuels speculation over expanded antitrust investigations.

In a nearly 450-page report, the Democratic majority staff laid out their takeaways from hearings, interviews and the 1.3 million documents they scoured throughout the investigation.

A yearlong lawsuit against Alphabet’s board of directors over allegations of shielding the sexual harassment has, at long last, come to a close. It’s a decision that, as one attorney on the plaintiff’s side said, will “fundamentally alter” the way Google’s parent company operates—and hopefully the way some of its senior staffers operate, too.

To give a quick recap: back in 2018, the New York Times published a pretty grisly exposé detailing the lengths Google’s board went in order to keep a select few high ranking employees comfortable, even after they were credibly accused of sexual harassment. Notoriously, former Android senior VP Andy Rubin allegedly cheated on his then-wife with Googlers that were—in at least one case—not only a direct employees, but direct employees that he pressured into sex. That decision (among others) would eventually lead to his quiet termination, but
