Amazon and Google are innovating but Apple, FB, and Netflix are not as great as they used to be. So who's in the new faang?

    APPLUSSSZ, Stylized as A+Z

    AirBnB, Palantir, Pinterest, Lyft, Uber, Slack, Stripe, Zoom

    There’re are various permutations of this, with some companies added or removed, but I’ve seen a quite a few references to the “A+” companies or “A+Z companies”

      So FANG represents tech growth stocks...I guess your version is for (mostly) tech loser stocks?

      ^^ actually I agree with you. The search for a new acronym is dumb. Most of these companies do not have growth stories at worst; have to prove their growth stories at best.

      Engineers forget but FANG is a finance thing not a tech thing. Netflix is barely a tech company.

      We don’t need a new acronym

    You do realize that FANG is a finance acronym right? It describes the bell weathers for the tech industry (specifically growth stories). It’s still largely accurate

    They need to remove Apple and Netflix. Apple isn't very innovative and Netflix isn't even in Silicon Valley.

      When you can get there with a $5 Uber ride you’re still in Silicon Valley
