And following back-to-back blowout quarters from NVIDIA (NVDA - Free Report) , the conversation won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

And recently, it was unveiled that NVIDIA has expanded its partnership with Alphabet’s (GOOGL - Free Report) Google Cloud to advance AI computing, software, and services. The market reacted highly positively to the news, with both GOOGL and NVDA shares seeing plenty of buying pressure.

NVIDIA’s generative AI technology used by Google DeepMind and Google Research teams has been optimized and is now available to Google Cloud customers worldwide.

Jensen Huang, CEO and founder of NVIDIA, said, “Our expanded collaboration with Google Cloud will help developers accelerate their work with infrastructure, software and services that supercharge energy efficiency and reduce costs.”

It’s a significant announcement, further fueling the bullish sentiment we’ve seen within AI-related stocks in 2023. With NVIDIA firing on all cylinders, it raises a valid question – How do things currently stack up for Alphabet? Let’s take a closer look.

In addition, GOOGL shares aren’t expensive given the company’s growth trajectory, with the current 23.9X forward earnings multiple nicely beneath the 24.5X five-year median and highs of 26.8X in 2022. Earnings are forecasted to climb 25% on 9% higher revenues in its current year.
