FAANG

FAANG

FAANG is an acronym referring to the stocks of the five most popular and best-performing American technology companies: Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Alphabet (formerly known as Google). In addition to being widely known among consumers, the five FAANG stocks are among the largest companies in the world, with a combined market capitalization of nearly 7.1 trillion dollars as of August 5, 2021.

Any ETF that has at least 1% exposure to each of the FAANG stocks can be called a FAANG ETF. And because of the FAANG importance in the financial world, there are more than 35 major FAANG ETFs.

The term was coined by Jim Cramer, the television host of CNBC's Mad Money, in 2013, who praised these companies for being “totally dominant in their markets”. Originally, the term FANG was used, with Apple—the second “A” in the acronym—added in 2017.

In a nutshell about each “Faang”

3. Apple (APPLE) is a multinational technology company based in California, known for selling consumer electronics such as phones, tablets, and computers. It was founded by Steve Jobs and two others in 1976, making it the oldest of the FAANG stocks. Apple went public in December 1980, with an IPO that raised over $100 million (at $22 per share).

5. Headquartered in California, U.S., Google (GOOGLE) specializes in providing internet-based services and products. It was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin and is perhaps best known for its web search engine. The company went public in August 2004, offering almost 20 million shares at $85 per share.

Google Search is the United States’ dominant internet search engine. Its success triggered the creation of numerous other products, including work and productivity services (Google Docs, Google Sheets), email (Gmail), and video sharing (YouTube). Also, Google developed a mobile operating system called Android, which runs most of today’s smartphones. As of August 2021, Google’s market capitalization is $1.8 trillion, trading under its parent company, Alphabet. GOOGLE stock line chart will help you trade better.

Some have raised concerns that the FAANG stocks may be in the midst of a bubble, whereas others argue that their growth is justified by the stellar financial and operational performance they have shown in recent years. One thing’s for certain is that the level of volatility sometimes shown by FAANG stocks—and the huge influence these stocks can have on the market overall—is a source of concern for some investors.

All of the FAANG stocks are available in FBS in form of CDFs, so you can participate in trading with the world’s most influential stocks.
