It is a fine company. It is on his watch list. He does not own it because of his concern with regulatory issues. They have so much share of search that it attracts the attention of regulators. He anticipates the separation of YouTube from Google Search and that would not be good. Wait for some clarity from regulators.

GOOG vs. BABA He'd go with Google. For Alibaba, gross margins have dropped in half. Challenge is that they want to continue to grow, so they have to subsidize the products they sell. For Google, 85% of revenue is still coming from search, but they're expanding what search means to people. Google is leaps and bounds ahead of Siri.

FANGs? None in the FANG space are good value right now. Amazon has a floor at $1650 and ceiling at $2125 -- with PE ratio of 60. Facebook has given a short term buy signal -- technical support around $187-$189 with 20-25% upside. Nvidia has hit close to full value near $180 -- he might be taking profit on this one soon. Apple had a lousy quarter, but it still beat earnings expectations. He would not touch it here. Google hit resistance the other day -- too expensive as well. Netflix has been up against resistance and unless it can break through he would not touch it. He would only consider Facebook and Amazon as holds or weak buys.

There are many, many unmonetized opportunities within Google. They just reported 23% growth of revenues, trading at 20x earnings. The market was concerned about operating margins falling short because of R&D. To him, this is not a negative, because GOOGL spends huge amounts on R&D that will pay off in the future. Look at YouTube, which took time to become a moneymaking machine for Google. Don't be impatient.

Regulatory overhang? There are serious concerns with antitrust and privacy laws with this one and in his opinion they are only likely to intensify. Valuation and fundamental growth looks OK. It's got monopoly power. It's investing in all the right business lines. Really likes it long term. Reasonably priced, it's growing, it's in all the right niches, but doesn't recommend buying now, you want to wait until they make new highs.

He has cut back on this position but it is still in a sweet spot in terms of the growth going forward. They have not monetized a lot of their asset such as android. There is money now coming out of this sector. There is money flow risk because it is over owned. Advertizing is generally a pretty cyclical thing. He'd like to see a couple of quarters of earnings. This is one of the last tech stocks he would continue to own. He would still have a position. It is a core name. Maybe not put your full position on.
