Google parent Alphabet's stock (GOOGL) has had a mixed performance so far in 2023. Despite strong gains in 2021, GOOGL shares dropped 39% in 2022 amid a broader tech stock sell-off. So far this year, the stock is up 47%, outperforming the 27% gain in the Nasdaq composite.


However, GOOGL has pulled back recently along with the overall market. Google faces a number of challenges going forward, including an antitrust trial brought by the Justice Department alleging Google maintains an illegal monopoly in search. The trial started in September 2022 and a ruling may not come until 2024.


GOOGL beat earnings expectations for the second quarter of 2022, snapping a four-quarter string of profit declines. But competition is increasing in AI and search from companies like Microsoft, presenting a potential threat to Google's dominance.
