Alphabet Inc. (GOOG) (GOOGL) was created in 2015 as part of a restructuring effort by Google to turn Alphabet into a holding company. Two years later, what companies does Alphabet own? You'd be surprised. Here are only 5 examples of Alphabet's many companies and projects

1. X:The slightly secret research-and-development company that has developed projects like Waymo and Google Glass. 

2. Google Fiber: Part of the Access initiative for Google, providing broadband and internet to a growing pool of subscribers

3.  CapitalG: Alphabet's growth equity investment fund that concentrates on more developed startups like Airbnb and Glassdoor. 

4. Calico: Develops drugs with the intention to "cure death". They're working on drugs for diseases like cancer and Alzheimers

5. Larry Page (the co-founder of Google) owns two secretive flying car companies, Zee Aero and the smaller Kitty Hawk. While not under the Alphabet umbrella, they'll assumedly become part of it soon.
