However, despite the rising revenues and net income, the company's stock traded down following the announcement, with investors concerned over the increase in the 'cost of revenues' lines in Alphabet's consolidated statements of income, from $45.6bn in 2017 to $59.5bn in 2018.

Research and development also increased by just under one-third, from $16.63bn to $21.42bn.
