      I don't think anyone is going to reasonably argue that expedia belongs in the FANG or even MANGO conversation but it does have it's merits.
      Amazon has earned is reputation for sucking the life from it's employees. How many last 3 years? How many of you get managed out before your RSUs vest? How many of your co-workers or bosses do you actually like and / or respect?
      Expedia has a long history and a lot of tech baggage to overcome but most of us enjoy being here and we're the biggest travel platform in the world in a market they still has a lot of room for growth and we make a profit. It's not a bad place to be.

    It takes lots of leadership power and trend setting ability to be part of FANG kinda accronym. the company needs to lead from front to get that status.. stock market is just an reflection of what companies does in their day to day business.. I don't see Microsoft/Oracle in FANG category as they are followers.. and not trend setters.. Expedia.. seriously?? Cisco was once trend setters but now they just follow new upcoming startups in networking business..so Cisco have no chance... Uber is a good candidate but company is still private.. many things are not published to the public hence difficult to judge how company runs internally.... More transparency required to decide..

      Fang has nothing to do with leadership. It's just an acronym Jim Cramer came up with when referencing his pick of stock that had a good growth over the last years. As much as I like Netflix, there's a lot of bigger, more impactful tech companies out there.
