Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
About Alphabet Inc. (GOOG)
In 2015, Google created a new publicly-listed holding company for its business, called Alphabet, Inc.
With a distinctive stock ticker of ‘GOOGL’ for its NASDAQ Class A Shares, Alphabet holds the operating companies that Google previously owned. This allows Google to focus on its core businesses.
Google was founded by friends Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998 as the first internet boom was gaining momentum. With millions of new websites coming online, there had to be a better way of searching.
Today, Google’s focus is on search, online advertising, cloud, Maps, mobile operating systems (Android and Chrome), and more recently, productivity solutions like Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and email.
