Alphabet, Google's parent company, briefly reached a market capitalization of $ 2 trillion.

In the third quarter of 2021, Alphabet had a record quarter, earning $ 65.1 billion. The company reported that its revenue increased 41 percent, while its profit increased almost 69 percent. Google Search saw a slight increase in earnings, climbing to $ 37.9 billion from $ 35.8 billion in the prior quarter. YouTube, another Alphabet company, made $ 7.2 billion in the most recent quarter.

Alphabet came close to joining Apple and Microsoft as one of three US-based companies that are part of the exclusive $ 2 trillion clubs.
