Google-parent Alphabet‘s (GOOGL) stock rose a fraction, to 802.79, in the stock market today, and leaks led to early reports of most of Google’s offerings shown Tuesday. Google stock broke out of a flat base at an 813.98 buy point on Sept. 22, so remains within range, though in this volatile market investors should be cautious about any new buys.

Google’s product launch as expected was highlighted by two new “Pixel” smartphones, its “Daydream View” virtual reality headset, and “Google Home,” a rival to Amazon‘s (AMZN) Echo smart speaker.
