Alphabet Bought The Dip In GitLab Stock After Earnings: The Details

GitLab Inc GTLB shares are rising Thursday, continuing to stage a comeback after diving on earnings earlier this week. It turns out Alphabet Inc GOOG was among the dip buyers.

What To Know: GitLab shares fell nearly 30% Tuesday on the heels of weak revenue guidance from the development, security and operations platform company. 

Several analysts lowered price targets on the stock following the report, but that didn't deter Google from stepping in and taking a position.
