Rounding out the week's tech-heavy earnings releases, Amazon and Google both posted quarterly beats Thursday after the bell.
The two tech stocks saw their shares pop following the news, though Amazon's shares did drop briefly before clawing back.
For Amazon, the strong results mark the third straight quarter of record profit. The online retailer's earnings per share came in at $1.78 and revenues of $30.4 billion.
Google parent company Alphabet's second-quarter revenue came in at $21.5 billion.
And notably, Alphabet's "moonshots" shined brightly with a 33 percent increase in sales.
After Alphabet restructured last year, investors have been eager to see if its "moonshot" bets -- like driverless cars -- will pay off. Per CNN Money, they have, but at a cost.
Meanwhile, for Amazon, the results come on the heels of Prime Day number two, in which the company reported its biggest sales day yet.
For a company known for being a big spender, the blockbuster profits streak affirms Amazon is working hard to invest in building out new and existing ventures.
