    Yikes, asking a bunch of non professional investors for advice. Don't take what we say seriously.

      Yikes, thinking professional investors are any better.

      Yikes, did I hurt your fragile ego?

      No. I'm not OP. I was just saying many of the "experts" do worse than the S&P index over time.

      And we're just getting lucky in here because we work in tech and invest disproportionately in tech stocks.

      Last year everyone in blind said to invest in crypto. "Experts" would have advised against it and what do you know, people lost a lot of money.

      Why nflx? I think it’s overvalued as they have lot of new competition next year from disney. Also they are concentrated in single business

      Because Netflix is a Giffen good.

      NFLX is number one. DIS will always be playing catch up.

      @juxygsv that's true. But as other companies start taking market share, they will lose subscribes and lose revenue?

      @sos567 that’s assuming that a) it’s a saturated user base (and it isn’t) and b) that people will end one contract for the other (more likely to ditch cable TV first) and c) that there regression in hard times - when in fact if people are feeling broke and staying in they might be more likely to subscribe to NFLX. Going back to picking stocks, DIS has a lot of ESPN and other baggage including boomer deadwood execs to drag along. NFLX is a clean streaming play. But I’m not down on DIS. The parks make a fucktonne of money and the current management seem to be making the right decisions. They just have the last management that made a bunch of bad decisions on wrong models to deal with.

    I’d swap fb for sq. Fb has too many shady scandals and problems. Too high risk.

    Hard to predict the short term, but if you plan to hold longer, these stocks you listed are hard to fail and should rise.

    Wait for clarity on impeachment and the Trade War. Next step on the mile board is the Trump Tax Returns. The stocks will continue to show volatility into next year.

    Looking at the vote results, I think putting a strangle strategy on these stocks would be ideal

    Why would you be buying individual equities instead of funds?
