DONATIONS TO SINL ACCEPTED HERE

The Alphabet, Inc. fourth quarter 2015 earnings announcement provides, in part:

"MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (January 8, 2016) – Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG, GOOGL) will hold its quarterly conference call to discuss fourth quarter 2015 financial results on Monday, February 1st at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time (4:30 p.m. Eastern Time)............"

$1,000

Will Alphabet's fourth quarter earnings report and conference call be the catalysts that propel  GOOG (closed at $742.95 up $11.99 / share on 01/29/2016) and GOOGL (closed at $761.35 up $13.05 / share on 01/292/2016)  to the symbolic $1,000 / share mark and beyond during the next few months? On the other hand, will these price moving events cause Alphabet suffer the same fate as AMZN (closed at $587.00 down $48.35 / share on 01/29/2016 following 01/28/2016 after hours earnings announcement) which fell victim to specious, contrived analyst projections after reporting stellar earnings and sales growth that justified a significant price increase and not a $48 haircut?
