The Nasdaq fell 2% premarket following disappointing earnings reports from several big tech companies — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.
Google parent company Alphabet Inc. Class C (Nasdaq: GOOG) missed top- and bottom-line expectations, and reported a drop in YouTube ad revenue. Meanwhile, Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) beat earnings and revenue estimates, but reported weaker-than-expected cloud revenue.
The news caused both companies to drop 6% in premarket trading, pulling down other tech titans set to report this week. Meta Platforms Inc. (Nasdaq: META) and Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) fell 4% and 3.8%, respectively.
Meta reports earnings after the close on Wednesday, while Amazon and Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) report Thursday after the close.

What I’m about to share with you is arguably the most impactful discovery in the history of WealthPress…
On Oct. 8, 2022, an entirely new way to enter and exit trades came to life.
It’s a system that has the potential to anticipate the future direction of the stock market a full day in advance.
I call it my “Quantum Indicator.”
I’m so excited about this new indicator, I’m holding a special live training event at 1 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Oct. 26, where I’ll show everyone how to install and even use the Quantum Indicator.
And the best part is… it doesn’t cost a thing to attend!
P.P.S. When it comes to trading, every second counts. And in choppy markets like these, often driven by headlines, stocks can make big moves in a flash.
That’s why I want you to get my latest trading ideas and market updates as fast as possible. So I’m rolling out an all-new option for my students to receive trade alerts with Telegram!
Telegram allows me to get trade ideas, videos and watchlists to you in a matter of seconds.
