A great company. The cash flow that is coming out of them is fantastic. It allows for investing in other sectors. The transition to mobile has been wonderful. Super balance sheet. Management team has been consistent. They have lots of new developments. This is going to be one of the game changers as it has been in the past.

Positive seasonality, October to January of each year. It worked the last two years, but has been going sideways recently. Slightly below its 20 day moving average, but market relative strength is okay. Watch carefully over the next two to four weeks.

They split into two classes and these are the voting shares and he would buy them. Mobility is a key aspect of this company. People were hung up on the cost per click for advertising, but mobility upped their clicks so revenue growth is very robust. Their multiple is falling because earnings are growing faster. Things are setting up for a long term ownership position.

One of the better large cap tech companies you can own. Very innovative suite of products. Always thinking about trying to do something new. The problem he sees is that search has been displaced by banners. Social media has come on and moved into their space and taken advertising dollars away. He likes their business model, but it may not be the go-go stock it once was. You will get better than average growth and you are not paying a lot for it.

There has been a lot of pressure on tech stocks with the selling to make way for the Alibaba IPO. This creates a buying opportunity. Google’s hands are in absolutely everything. She likes it. Incredibly well managed.

Thinks that 80% of the world is working off this company’s operating system for mobile and mobile is really the way we are all going. YouTube is a hugely undervalued asset. The fact that they are able, with all that cash, to acquire and invest in developing new technologies, makes it a company that you just have to own. Very reasonable valuations.

Next to Apple (AAPL-Q), this is his biggest weighting in technology. These are brilliant guys. They diversified the core business into other ancillary businesses. They spend a lot of money on R&D. Some of that has yet to come to fruition. The basic search engine is going to drive it for years to come. Trading at around 18-19 times earnings, which is a very reasonable multiple to pay for the growth that it has.

(A Top Pick Sept 6/13. Up 31.13%.) Announced some really great earnings. Their “cost per click” continues to go down, but the number of clicks continues to grow at a much faster pace. They have some competitive threats, but he loves the Android Operating system. Have about 85% market share.

Google (GOOGL-Q) or Apple (AAPL-Q)? Given this choice, he would pick Google. On a balance sheet level, etc., they are very similar. Google is a software company whereas Apple is not so much, and gets about 60% of their revenue off of one product, the iPhone, and there has not been a real product from them for a long, long time.

She likes this. It is not super expensive. The biggest thing going against it is that it is Big, but when you actually look at what it is doing, it has transformed itself from a search engine to a very intelligent marketing machine. Still a lot of growth to come from this.

She was looking at this one quite closely when it got down to the $520 level. A leader in advertising/media, and they make a lot of money off their users. This is one that she would seriously consider putting in a portfolio. She is hoping for a general market pullback so she could get into this.
