Tech conglomerate Alphabet is set to release third-quarter financial results Monday after the closing bell.

Here are some of the key consensus estimates for the company's third-quarter results:

Revenue: $32.72 billion

Earnings per share: $14.11

Net income: $9.72 billion

Analysts are largely expecting Alphabet-owned Google's entrenched position in the search and digital advertising markets to drive steady revenue growth for the quarter.

There's also been an increased focus on the company's non-advertising businesses such as Google Cloud. Alphabet said on its second-quarter earnings call that its cloud business was one of the largest drivers of overall sales growth with an $8 billion annual revenue run rate.

Investors and analysts will likely be looking to see if the company can continue to grow its cloud business – which includes the G Suite featuring applications like Gmail and Google Drive, as well as enterprise cloud solutions.

The company is furthering its investment in cloud with the launch next month of a cloud-based gaming platform called Stadia. The service will be available starting November 19 for $9.99 per month for the Pro subscription.

Alphabet has strong support from analysts with 36 "buy" ratings, six "hold" ratings, and zero "sell" ratings.
