Here's what you should expect from the final FAANG earnings after the bell on Monday, Feb. 4.

Alphabet is Real Money's stock of the day

"Well one of the biggest names in the FAANG complex is going to give us fourth quarter earnings next week and that is Alphabet (GOOGL) - Get Report --the parent company of Google. We're looking for revenue in the region of about $38.8 billion dollars...However much like many of its FAANG brethren, this is going to be far more focused on what the company has to say about the first three months of  2019," said TheStreet's London Bureau Chief, Martin Baccardax.

"Expenses are rising for a lot of these companies as they try to protect themselves against intensified competition from each other and from international rivals and also because they are seeing some profit erosion as a result of strong U.S. dollar and increasing regulatory costs and advertising market is also a little bit fragmented. And that's an important component of Google earnings, so we're going to watch out with interest but probably more importantly listen to the earnings all because that has been the direct most of the stock movements for much of this is," he continued.
