The company's Class A stock price has been soaring this year from a 52-week low of $672.66.

Last Tuesday, shares of Amazon broke through $1,000 for the first time. Amazon has a market value of $478 billion.

Alphabet's market value is now about $680 billion, second only to Apple at more than $800 billion.

On Monday, analyst Andy Hargreaves suggested investors buy Alphabet instead of Apple because of the potential for iPhone sales to decline in 2019.
