These four stocks are hitting different parts of the tech market.

Today's video focuses on what to watch during upcoming earnings for Microsoft (MSFT -2.20%), Advanced Micro Devices (AMD -3.91%), Spotify (SPOT -2.19%), and Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL -2.44%) (GOOG -2.74%). Here are some highlights from the video. 

  1. Alphabet, Microsoft, and AMD all report earnings on Tuesday. The stock prices for these three companies are either at or near all-time highs. Spotify, which reports on Wednesday, is down over 30% from its all-time highs.
  2. Alphabet will be the one many investors are watching after the disappointing results Snap (SNAP 1.65%) gave on Thursday. Investors should note how much recent changes to user tracking have affected Google's ability to provide robust advertising solutions to its consumers. 
  3. Intel's (INTC -0.75%) stock price plummeted after the company reported a slowdown in its PC-centric business due to component shortages. AMD investors should watch how the recent shortage affects the company's business in consumer chips.
