While around 80% of the company’s revenue comes from advertising, Alphabet has operations in many industries such as self-driving cars, consumer technology, games, and more.

Investors will be eager to see the reaction to Google’s new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro phones at the October 6 event, as well as its first-ever smartwatch, the Pixel Watch. That could help the overall bottom line, but investors will be looking to see if the company can also grow ad revenue with more people using its devices.

Currently, Alphabet’s price-to-earnings ratio (PE ratio) of 20.62 is near its 5-year low at 19.71. The PE ratio is a financial ratio that some analysts and investors use to determine the value of a company.
