Alphabet Inc. (formerly Google) was one of the few companies who saw its stock rise. The company's Class C stock, GOOG, closed yesterday at 1,036.05, but opened today at 1,050.00.


It gave away some of that momentum today, rising to as much as 1,054.56 before falling and eventually closing the day at 1,043.66. Similarly, Alphabet stock has lost the momentum it enjoyed throughout much of August, when shares traded at over 1,200 points. Now, experts by TradingView consider the stock a sell, with 14 experts recommending to sell, nine remaining neutral and three recommending to buy.


Other stocks that trended upward today included Facebook (1.45 percent), Comcast (1.51 percent) and Tesla, which was the biggest riser on the day (1.56 percent).

On the opposite side of the spectrum, Amazon and Netflix were down 1.97 and 2.61 percent, respectively, while Bed Bath & Beyond had the biggest fall at 3.40 percent.
