Big Day of Earnings for Tech Giants
After the bell, Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon, and Intel all reported earnings, and it was a good day to be a tech giant overall. Jason Abbruzzese, business reporter at Mashable, joined Cheddar to break down all the earnings and what these numbers mean for the four tech companies. Amazon beat expectations for both revenue and earnings per share. Earnings per share reported at $0.52 versus the expectation of $0.03. Revenue came in at $43.7 billion versus the estimate of $42.14 billion. The third quarter is always a spend-heavy time for the online retail giant as it preps for holiday sales, and an increased staff. Alphabet beat on earnings as well. Earnings per share came out to $9.57 versus estimates of $8.33 and revenue came in at $27.77 billion above estimates of $27.20 billion. Investors had their eyes on aggregate paid clicks, which were up 47%. This metric is big when it comes to Google because of the revenue it derives from search advertisements. Microsoft also had a successful earnings report. Earnings per share came in above estimates at $0.84 versus an estimate of $0.72, and revenue was reported as $24.5 billion versus estimates of $23.56 billion. Products and cloud services for Microsoft revenue also rose 17% in the ongoing cloud race between Microsoft and Amazon. Amazon Web Spaces had a reported revenue of $1.17 billion versus $861 million this time last year. And finally, Intel reported its earnings as well. And just like their tech neighbors on this market day, Intel beat estimates. Their reported earnings per share came in at $1.01 versus expectations of $0.80 and revenue was reported at $16.10 billion versus an expectation of $15.73 billion.

Samsung's Executive Shuffle and Social Media's Hit From Russia
Samsung reporting record profit for its third quarter, but the news was somewhat overshadowed by a major shakeup in its executive ranks. The company dismissed the heads of its components, consumer electronics, and mobile divisions and said it would separate its CEO and chairman roles. Plus in testimony prepared for their Capitol Hill hearings on Wednesday, tech giants disclose that the impact of the Russian-backed ads bought during last year's election may have been much bigger than previously thought. Facebook, for example, said 126 million people may have seen the content. And Apple reportedly is considering ditching Qualcomm as a supplier for its iPads and iPhones, and Amazon Studios is looking to expand, even amid changes in its top ranks.
