There are regulatory headwinds. Their earnings missed. Their top line growth was excellent even though it wasn't to market expectation. He believes they will go even higher. There is big opportunity in the long term.

Antitrust? It hit all time highs a few days ago before earnings were released. They built in some provisions to protect against adverse regulatory outcomes and that was a drag on earnings, so the share price fell after the announcement. The antitrust issues have heated up again, but if they get fined they have over $100 per share in cash to pay fines. At the end of the day, he thinks they will argue that they give away their services for free so how are consumers being financially harmed? A good entry price right here.

Anti-trust is the biggest risk for Google. After 2 years of controversy, they are close to being approved for the Toronto waterfront initiative. The spectre of anti-trust began with Facebook. How much are these players controlling data? The government has broken up telcos, oil, etc so there might be movement in the future.

A quick gain in 6 months? He is not a speculative trader -- he buys to own it 5-10 years. He thinks it is a great company and keeps selling more and more advertisements. It also has a host of lottery tickets that may pay off -- autonomous driving as an example. He calls it a must own.

His favorite company in the world. They continue to grow revenues at 20% per year under 9 different products. Two products have over two billion users each (Android and YouTube). Maps remains one of the most under-monetized assets, giving lots of upside growth yet to come. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $1402.31)

Sell Google, and buy IBM? Yes, Google has been languishing, but IBM has languished more. Also, Google has a better moat than IBM. Google is well-entrenched in the internet more than IBM. Instead, consider Amazon or especially Microsoft, or just hold onto Google.

He is a big fan and likes their business model -- especially how it generates such great cash flow. There is a ton of runway ahead of them and he believes they will continue to grow. The one thing you have to be careful with is the issues around privacy. The fire is that they are so broad and may run the risk of having to be broken up. Until that day comes, he sees great things. The multiple is reasonable, but understand that if the market falls, it will fall too. (Analysts’ price target is $1376.00)

He buys and sells Tesla. A good trading stock. He treats it as an opportunistic holding. He has no idea right now where it may be going right now. When it comes to autonomous cars, he would prefer buying into Google.

Facebook vs Alphabet? He definitely prefers Alphabet as it is the dominate player in the online advertising space. It trades at only 20 times earnings and growing at 20% per year. A company of this stature with no debt and lots of cash. They will be buying back stock.

(A Top Pick Aug 21/18, Down 3%) It is part of his fund and has been flat for some time. On the back of government action that we are seeing from the tech world, Google looks fantastic. It is very interesting again. They are a leader in autonomous driving.

It is his largest holding. It is a stable growth stock. Nothing has changed since his last show except they have done better after their last results were results. They are growing 20% on the revenue side. They still have great margins and cash on the balance sheet is just going to keep growing. It is cheaper than most consumer products companies.

Too much regulatory risk here, because they hold such a huge share of internet share, which would attract anti-trust regulation. He'll wait for any anti-trust investigation to finish first. He'll wait.
