Investing in FANG Stocks Now Is Nothing Like 1999

investing in fang stocks now

Investing in FANG stocks now is the absolute best way to score big returns this year.

But some investors think the tech rally looks eerily similar to the dot-com crash.

Here's why this FANG rally is nothing like 1999...

The Best Tech Stocks to Buy in 2017

tech stocks to buy

The search for the best tech stocks to buy in 2017 starts with four long-simmering trends that are about to start realizing their potential.

Money Morning Director of Tech & Venture Capital Research Michael A. Robinson said these once-disappointing tech trends will achieve "breakout" status in 2017.

He also has specific suggestions on which are the best tech stocks to buy to capitalize on these trends.

This is Robinson's 2017 forecast - along with his top stock picks...

Maybe We Should Call These "Elaine Chao Stocks"


My colleagues have been busy making lists of "Donald Trump stocks."

I've done some of that myself.

But maybe we should rethink that a little.

Trump has said he plans to act more like a chairman of the board, while Vice President-elect Mike Pence and the cabinet handle the nitty-gritty of government.

So maybe we should be talking about "Elaine Chao stocks"...

After all, Trump's pick for secretary of transportation will head up much of the president-elect's $1 trillion infrastructure improvement plan.

But more importantly to our interests here, she'll be in charge of regulating self-driving vehicle technology.

If Chao's history as deputy secretary of transportation under George H.W. Bush and secretary of labor under George W. Bush repeats itself, that's good news, because she's known for a light regulatory hand.

To us, that means public companies in the self-driving space are likely to see a big boost in share price over the next four years.

Especially the one we're looking at today.

You can already find its "pre"-autonomous driving technology in many of the most prestigious nameplates.

Its technology is the force behind two of the most "public" driverless car tests over the past couple of years.

And its shares are primed to soar as much as 40% in the next year alone.

Let's take a closer look at this "Elaine Chao stock"...

How to Play Trump's On-the-Fly Tech Summits

Trump has had a fraught relationship with Silicon Valley - plenty of tech's heaviest hitters voted the other way in the November election. But each side needs the other; Trump needs those companies at work in the economy, and he needs them to repatriate the multibillion-dollar cash hoard they have parked offshore. 

On the other hand, Silicon Valley needs a deep pool of highly educated talent, and it wants to recruit both here in the United States and worldwide through the H1B visa system. It's concerned Trump's immigration policies might throttle that talent pipeline.

So the two sides are talking. Chiefs like Tim Cook, Larry Page, Satya Nadella, and Sheryl Sandberg have all met Trump in New York, and there are more meetings scheduled.

Investors love that the two sides are talking, but our Chief Investment Strategist, Keith Fitz-Gerald, cautions that not every big tech company will see the same benefit from this silicon détente. Some are smarter buys than others; some may lose out in the new administration. This is what he had to say to FOX Business' "Varney & Co."
