Why is it called FANG? And not FANGMA. Are Microsoft/Apple not competitive with compensation or innovative anymore?

      No way for Spotify my friend who’s there as an SE and tc is only 125k...apple, amazon, Facebook, google, Netflix, nvidia I think...some people think amazon is not at the same level but again I think it depends on what team...I’d put aws up to anything if you wanna deal w scalability (Sagemaker is leading the way for scalable ml for sure and stuff like dynamo dB and s3 are great too) again it comes down to your interest if you care about gpu and cuda than obv nvidia, Netflix fires like crazy but every company has good and bad parts of it (look how amazon works you or how google babies you)

    This is a dumb acronym Jim Cramer came up with that means absolutely nothing. One way to look at it is these are the stocks that inevitably will crash hard because of how much they’ve risen.

      OP
      In that case MSFT stock has also done really well post the 2008-2009 recession. And I feel like they're getting their edge back by innovating in the cloud, machine learning, open source (think the VS Code editor), etc

    Apple is no longer innovative. They maintain innovation like a faucet valve. They don't care for he end consumer and under Tim Cook they're nothing more than an accessory play. Removing the head phone jack and totally cutting privacy etc are unneeded 'courageous' decisions.

    Also they have $300B+ in cash reserves and keep bilking the consumer to sell more accessories, instead of advancing tech. Gone from innovating to iterating. Revolution to evolution. All while undercutting privacy and purposeful product degradation/slowing as product strategy.

    I think a more appropriate acronym is NAT, for Netflix, Amazon and Tesla, either price/earnings ratios well over 200 or doesn’t even have earnings to have a ratio. I predict up to a 50% crash in the next market downturn, with Tesla potentially not even surviving.

    I'm assuming he made this comment during the Balmer era. Since Satya came in msft has gone up a ton.

    It was based on P/E ratio and he clearly mentioned that in his following interview. Check each of their stock performance for 5 yrs, you will find out why it's FANG.

    And lastly, even some bond based mutual fund performs better than MSFT lol you can treat MSFT as bond

      Dipshit, it was an analogy, comparing between high risky high rewarding stock vs very steady and less rewarding stock.. that was one of the cramer's point behind fang...

      Your 50% remark is also pointless, which year it was 50% during Ballmer's era?

      Looks like MS is full with trash these days.. listen ignorant kid, no one is talking about current stock price.. OP's question was why Cramer didn't pick msft.. do a favor, ask your mother how MSFT performed during Ballmer's era... I did a favor to compare ur stock with bond, in reality, it performed even worse than bond during his time..

      No pace of innovation that drives the stock price, check AWS reinvent event
