“Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) continues to perform well, but the price-to-earnings multiple contracted considerably due to concerns about the potential for revenue to be more economically sensitive than it has been historically given the vast size of the business today. Similarly, Adobe and Accenture continue to report strong sales growth, but performance has moderated a bit relative to the extremely robust results generated over the last year or so. In all three cases, we think that the longer-term outlook remains excellent.”
