DOJ's Google probe could embolden critics of tech giants, says BofA/Merrill
After the Wall Street Journal reported late Friday that the U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to open an investigation into Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) compliance with antitrust laws, BofA/Merrill analyst Justin Post said that while FTC commissioners have voted in the past not to pursue a lawsuit and possible breakup of Google, the current climate "is somewhat different." In a research note to investors, Post says antitrust probes are "difficult to predict," and that if the DOJ moves ahead, an investigation would likely embolden critics of Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN) and other tech giants as well, causing rhetoric to heat up during the 2020 election year. Potential implications for Google could include new regulations on business practices or an antitrust investigation leading to a breakup, but to break up Google, the DOJ would likely have to file a lawsuit and convince judges that Google has undermined competition. Post has a Buy rating and $1,350 price target on shares of Google parent Alphabet.
