Alphabet records $74.6 billion in quarterly revenue thanks to demand for the cloud and ad sales, and

On Tuesday, Alphabet said that its second-quarter profit had above Wall Street estimates and that Ruth Porat, the company's longtime CFO, would take on a new job while it searched for a new finance head.

The consistent demand for Alphabet's cloud services and an uptick in advertising contributed to its success. After-hours trading saw an 8 percent increase in the shares. Shares of rival Microsoft, which released results on Tuesday as well, were marginally lower, while those of Meta Platforms, a business likewise heavily reliant on ad sales, increased by as much as 2%.
