Mazal Tov to Jan Koum of WhatsApp

Take Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin, who was born in Moscow in 1973 and moved to the U.S. to escape the persecution of Jews in Russia, and co-founded Google. Today, he is one of the most successful and influential people in the world. There’s actress Mila Kunis, who was born in Kiev and has been named by Esquire Magazine as the Sexiest Woman Alive. Leningrad-born Gary Shteyngart has been recognized as one of the best writers of our time. His books have won numerous awards, and his second novel was named one of the 10 Best Books of the Year by The New York Times Book Review, as well as a best book of the year by Time and The Washington Post Book World.
Entrepreneur Evgeny Freidman, the New York City taxi mogul, is an immigrant by way of St. Petersburg, and Edward Mermelstein, one of the most powerful real estate attorneys in New York is also Ukrainian-born. There’s Olympic swimmer Lenny Krayzelburg and nightclub king Eugene Remm. All of these people speak Russian as their native language – and there are so many other Russian-Americans who contribute so much to American culture, science, business, sports, and other arenas and are overlooked. (It’s also well past time to do away with “Russian mafia” headlines and related suspicions that we hear repeatedly and are a tremendously unfair stereotype.)
Russian-American Jews have had such a great impact on America – and the world. There is so much success already for them to celebrate. Let us say Mazel Tov to Jan Koum of WhatsApp. Wishing you continued success and only happiness and good things.
Ronn Torossian is not Russian, although his wife Zhanna is. He is a board member of the largest Russian-American Jewish organization, RAJE.

Alphabet earnings keep Google investors in dark

Published: July 25, 2017 10:20 a.m. ET

YouTube has over 1.5 billion monthly viewers amid a hot market for video advertising, and is likely Alphabet Inc.’s second biggest business after Google’s core internet search business. But in Alphabet’s second quarter results on Monday, the overall Google business still did not include a break-out of YouTube’s financial performance, to the detriment of investors.
Alphabet GOOGL, +0.61% GOOG, +0.80%  bundles YouTube results in its overall Google properties advertising revenue, which soared nearly 20% from a year ago to $18.4 billion. Google says in regulatory filings that its “Google properties revenue” consists primarily of advertising sales generated on Google’s website and app, YouTube, and other Google-owned and -operated properties like Gmail, Google Maps and Google Play.
YouTube is clearly the star right now beyond search, however, based on the attention executives gave to the video site in Monday’s earnings call—YouTube was mentioned 25 times, according to a rough transcript of the call, challenging the word “search” (32 times) and dominating Google Play and Gmail (three times apiece) as well as Maps (seven times).
“The biggest contributors to growth again this quarter were mobile search and YouTube,” Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat said.
Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai, who joined Alphabet’s board Monday, also focused on the video site, discussing the 1.5 billion users and saying that they watched on average an hour a day of YouTube on phones and tablets. But that shows one of the problems in disclosing these types of metrics in conference calls with general terminology: Was that just mobile viewing? We may never know, since Google does not disclose these metrics in terms that it defines somewhere for investors to find.
In addition, new revenue-recognition rules that Alphabet has already adopted suggest that Alphabet should be disclosing YouTube results. The rules call for companies to disclose results as they are being reported to the chief decision maker, and Porat’s statements about growth suggest that there are certainly YouTube results floating around the company’s C-suite.

Alphabet’s lack of hard data behind its offerings is annoying, but it could also be detrimental to its stock. Investors may have found a reason to bid Google’s stock price higher with hard data showing YouTube’s growth Monday, but instead they seemed to focus on the falling cost-per-clicks, or CPC, metric and increasing traffic-acquisition costs, or TAC. Google’s CPC fell 23% in the quarter, compared with a drop of 7% in the same period a year ago, while TAC increased to 22% of advertising revenue from 21% a year ago, a combination that could be worrisome for Alphabet.
Beyond standard revenue and earnings, both of which beat expectations handily in Monday’s report, and some limited segmentation, that alphabet soup of acronyms are about the only metrics of consequence that Alphabet shares with the public. They seemed to have an effect Monday: Despite the earnings beat, Alphabet stock fell about 3% in after-hours trading, after gaining 13.6% in the previous three months to outperform the S&P 500 index SPX, -0.13%  , which added 4% in that time.

This is a company, though, that loves to be vague. Ever since it went public, Google/Alphabet has not given investors any kind of financial guidance or helpful outlook because the company’s founders, Alphabet CEO Larry Page and Sergey Brin, do not want investors to have a mentality focused on quarterly results.
So investors, without much else additional info beyond a breakout of Alphabet’s money-losing “Other Bets” segment, will continue to focus on an opaque bucket of revenue and wonky advertising metrics that would make most eyes glaze over. If Alphabet wants to celebrate its growing businesses—such as YouTube and Google Cloud—as much as executives did in Monday’s conference call, it needs to provide some real numbers in a standardized manner. It might be pleasantly surprised by the results.
