Live: Here comes Alphabet's Q1 earnings



Alphabet, the parent company of giant Google Google, fell short of Wall Street's revenue targets for its first three months of the year, and the stock is down 5% in after hours trading on Monday.

"We delivered robust growth by alphabet, $ 36.3 billion, up 17% versus last year, or 19% on a constant currency basis," said Ruth Porat, chief financial officer of Alphabet and Google said in a statement on Monday.

A slowdown in Google's revenue could be reason for the missed targets. 15% year-over-year in Q1 2019, compared to 24% year-over-year growth rate in Q1 2018.

Here's what Alphabet reported:

Net Revenue (excluding TAC) : $ 29.48 billion, up 1

8.6% year over year, but below the $ 30.04 billion analysts expected.

Q1 EPS (GAAP): $ 9.50, (including a $ 1.7 billion EU fine) compared with $ 10.10 expected by analysts.

Other bets revenue: $ 170 million, compared with $ 150 million last year.

Other bet operating loss: ($ 868) million, versus ($ 571) million last year.

Traffic acquisition costs (TAC): $ 6.86 billion, or 22% of advertising revenue, compared with 24% of advertising revenue during last year.

Google's capital expenditures: $ 4.6 billion, compared to $ 7.3 billion during the same period last year.

Employees: 103,459, adding more than 4,600 employees to their payroll in the first quarter.
