Active trading in Google call options ahead of earnings

Active trading in Google call options ahead of earnings. The stock up $5.29 to $1108 and total volume - in both Google and Google Class A (GOOGL) shares - is lopsided at 42K calls and 26K puts. 1.2K GOOGL Nov 1150 calls changed hands. GOOGL Oct 26th 1150 calls, Nov 1050 puts, and Oct 26th 1110 calls are next most active. Meanwhile, the Oct 26th ATM straddle, which expires the day after today's earnings, equals 5% of spot and notably greater than the average daily post-earnings move of 3.2% seen over the past eight quarters. The stock rallied 3.5% to $1248.08 on 7/24 after the last report, but has since lost 11.2%. Increased call activity Thursday suggests some players expect another post-earnings pop later today.

KeyBanc expecting 'strong' results from Facebook, Alphabet in Q3
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves expects "strong" results from Facebook (FB)/Alphabet (GOOGL) in the Q3, with a likelihood for in line results from Twitter (TWTR) and Criteo (CRTO). The analyst says checks suggest advertiser demand for Facebook and Google properties remained strong in Q3 despite regulatory concerns. This is in contrast to generally weak sentiment across the space, he notes, which makes the risk/reward on Facebook, Alphabet, and Criteo positive.

Alphabet price target raised to $1,375 from $1,350 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley raised his price target for Alphabet to $1,375 ahead of the company's Q3 results and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. A continued recovery at YouTube and strength in mobile should drive Google Sites revenue growth excluding currency to 22.9%, "only a hair slower" than Q2 on "slightly harder comps," Walmsley tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees Alphabet reporting "solid" results and he keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Wedbush starts 'ad king' Alphabet with Outperform, $1,350 price target
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter initiated coverage of Alphabet (GOOGL) with an Outperform rating and $1,350 price target. In a research note titled "Long Live the Ad King," Pachter says he expects Google to "maintain positive ad momentum" even amidst pressure from Facebook (FB) and Amazon.com (AMZN). The analyst also thinks cost control efforts will drive better than expected Q3 results when Alphabet reports on October 25.
