Jefferies analyst Brent Thill has maintained his $155 price target on the stock, which corresponds to an upside potential of around 20%.

Alphabet Inc.

Alphabet, the parent company of Google, has seen its stock price decrease by more than 40% from Thill’s target price of $125. He believes that the company will bounce back from this slump due to an increase in advertising budgets. He also expects the company to make extensive layoffs, which will improve profit margins.
