Alphabet's stock was up over 5% Monday following the company's successful earnings reports.

Why it matters: The figures were reported just days after the EU announced that it would be slapping Google with one of it's biggest antitrust penalties ever.

By the numbers:

  • Total revenue was $32.7 billion, beating Wall Street analysts' expectations of $32.17 billion.
  • Earnings before Facebook's EU fine were $11.75 per share, which also beat projections of $9.66 per share. But its earnings after the fine are $4.54. (Google said it's hoping to appeal the ruling.)
  • Revenue for "Other bets" (Google-owned side projects like Nest and Verily) increased 50% year-over-year to $145 million for Q2.

What's next? Google will elaborate on its earnings in a call to investors at 4:30 p.m. ET. Axios will update this post accordingly.

Correction: This article has been updated to clarify Alphabet's total revenue.

NIAID director Anthony Fauci told CNN on Friday evening that if "people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating it."

Why it matters: Fauci made the comments the same day the U.S. hit its highest daily COVID-19 case count since the pandemic began.

Sen. Kamala Harris appealed to Black voters in Georgia on Friday, urging them to "honor the ancestors" by casting ballots, and again calling President Trump a "racist."

Why it matters: The U.S. saw a significant decline in African-American voter turnout between 2012 and 2016, reaching its lowest point since 2000. Higher turnout among Black Americans this year could tip the balance in favor of Democrats in key battleground states, including Georgia.
