What factors affect the share price of Google?

There are multiple macroeconomic factors which affect nearly all stock prices to some degree. These are things such as interest rates, consumer confidence, unemployment and geopolitical dynamics. In the case of the Google stock price history, there are three other main factors which have influenced the performance of the stock. These are:

  • Commodity prices

Large swings in the price of commodities related to technology manufacturing can have an affect on technology related stocks such as Alphabet. While Google is not involved in a huge amount of manufacturing, the growth of their business is dependent on the usage of technology devices. Tightening of the supply of key components, such as lithium and gold, have impacted the short-term growth prospects of the stock as consumer prices for electronics look set to increase.

  • Consumer sentiment

Google recently announced that they would block the access of third-party cookies on their web services. This was in large part due to the negative consumer response to these cookies. This will lead to a decrease in advertising revenue for Google but keep customers happy. Google historical data shows that advertising revenues play a huge part in the overall profitability of the company.

  • Government intervention

Google is highly dependent on overseas operations in order to minimise taxation and operating expenses. There has been an increase in calls for national governments to increase taxes on companies who shelter their money. There have also been multiple anti-trust lawsuits launched by European countries against Google for what they describe as their monopoly on internet searches. Alphabet stock price history shows that when calls for increased competition come from the government the stock price can be negatively affected.

Why look at historical data?

Traders can view the Google price history on the Google stock price history chart. Analysing historical data can provide valuable information regarding the past performance of the underlying asset during different economic or political scenarios. For example, by looking at Google historical prices during significant economic downturns and comparing them you can gain insight into how the underlying cause of a recession will affect the price differently. Analysing Google price history is also a valuable tool for traders looking to perform a more thorough comparison of stock price based on qualitative or quantitative analysis.

Historical data is also a valuable tool in correlating future revenue growth with stock price. By comparing the Google share price history increases to increases in revenue you can gain insight into the share price inflation value. Share price inflation is an indication of how much anticipated future growth is already priced into the stock value. The Alphabet share price history graph is also valuable to compare performance with other companies or indexes. By reviewing the data, a trader can see that Google stock outperformed the leading S&P 500 index by more than 4 per cent in 2020.
