As Internet giant Alphabet (GOOGL) reports its third-quarter earnings on Thursday after the market close, investors will be looking to see if it continues to dominate search and digital advertising, as well as whether its speculative "other bets," such as its self-driving car efforts and Nest connected devices, are gaining traction. Just this week, Alphabet announced it was cutting jobs and expansion plans in its expensive Google Fiber broadband project.
Eric Jhonsa, TheStreet's tech columnist, and Jack Mohr, research director for Jim Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio, which owns Alphabet, will be live blogging the company's earnings, providing instant reactions to Alphabet's quarterly report. The company's earnings call is at 4:30 p.m. ET.
