Loves it. Trims when it gets too big in the portfolio. Long way to run. Under attack from politicians. Regulations will be somewhat punitive, but Google can deal with this. Exceptionally strong balance sheet. Investing vast sums in healthcare. Visionary CEO. Attractive long-term investment.

Facing anti-trust scrutiny from Washington, so it's tricky to figure where to enter during the current tech sell-off. It's up only 5% YTD but it's a good company. It's trading at 31.8x this year's earnings. Has a lot of cash and boasts terrific growth. If it keeps falling, buy it.

He targets $1,770. The stock has always been in his top 5. Buy it around $1,300 or even now but only partially. 80% of revenues come from ads, their cash cow. Uncertain over the length of the current tech meltdown.

Bought more last month after Google announced results. Google has lagged the FANGs actually in the past year. Their revenues were flat YOY, which is the first time they haven't increased; the reason was COVID. But online search and advertising has a lot of room to grow, so Google will recover. Also, Google is now giving more disclosure about its YouTube and cloud businesses. The valuation has risen in the past year, but still reasonable. They have a lot of cash to fund growth. (Analysts’ price target is $1720.48)

Online advertising is a continuing trend. She's chosen Alphabet instead of FB, which has to keep spending money to deal with these regulatory issues. You want a very strong balance sheet. Alphabet has net cash, so they have more cash than debt and can fund their own growth.

(A Top Pick Jul 22/19, Up 34%) His price target is $1550. The third largest holding in his portfolio. He will begin to take it off it if goes above his price target, but he wouldn't sell all of it. 82% of their revenue comes from advertising. He continues to like it as they are the third largest provider of cloud services, along with devices/cell phones and autonomous driving. Still a buy and hold for everyone's portfolio.

A core holding he still likes. They dominate internet search. They could float YouTube itself for a huge amount. Yes, Google has done well, but he will hold this for a long, long time unless something dramatic happens.

Warren Buffet has 43% of his portfolio in APPL. APPL is a wonderful brand and strong company. He does not own it today. What worries him a little is that more than half of their revenues come from iPhone sales. They are diversifying, but it will take time. People are tending to keep their phones a year or two longer today it seems. The valuation has made it quite expensive. He would wait for a pullback or consider V, GOOG or MSFT. Warren Buffet must have some amazing incite to take on that concentration in the portfolio.
