Snakebit? Why FANG Gains Won't Slither Away

The members of FANG—Facebook (FB), Amazon.com (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Alphabet (GOOGL)—often compete in the same markets, duking it out for the same corporations and consumers alike, and directly influencing the revenue of one another—for good or ill. Standout performers in 2017, each is expected to continue their rollicking rides in 2018 – particularly in streaming/content, e-commerce, online ad and cloud computing, GBH Insights analyst Daniel Ives concludes in a research report issued today. Despite potential risks on the regulatory landscape, corporate tax changes and technology segments, Ives is convinced underlying fundamentals, spending trends and the consumer/enterprise are “very healthy.” Gazing into his crystal ball, Ives maintains Highly Attractive ratings for each of the stocks into 2018.
