Still buying it during this pullback. Their online advertising, which they dominate, is still growing and they hold a lot of cash so that can finance their growth without taking on a lot of debt. Their self-driving division will launch sometime in 2019 and has good potential. Google is growing their topline by 22% for a few years, which she believes they can sustain.

(A Top Pick Nov 06/17, Up 1%) Tech is over-owned and we'll see continued selling pressure, but he worries less about Google (and MSFT), because it's supported by earnings and growth, driven by the Cloud. Google is still a great story.

#1 in internet search, and owns YouTube and Waymo (self-driving cars). It's pulled back to 23x earnings and still growing revenues in the high-teens %. So it's now cheap. (Analysts’ price target is $1348.97)

(A Top Pick Sep 21/18, Down 8%) They are a market disrupter and in 5-10 years, you won’t care what you paid for this. They have a number of different revenue streams. The current drop in stock value is a significant over reaction. Is trading at a forward multiple of 24X. This is one of the best, safest growth names. He would definitely hang on to this name.

(A Top Pick Aug 29/17, Up 17%) A wild ride with these FANG stocks this year. Sometimes they trade on momentum, but eventually value shines through. Google had 35 straight quarters of 20%+ revenue growth at 20x earnings--name another company like that. Hopefully they clean up their office politics. Their investments in self-driving could be huge as well as the connected home. Their Google search and YouTube are crushing it.

He's long owned it and it's a major holding. All the FANGs have been hit lately. Google's last report beat, but their revenues were light. It went down today because of the general sell-off and a possible UK digital tax is rearing its head. The markets are overreacting now. Google has 21x earnings for 2019, so it's still reasonable. Now, is a great entry point.

In the space of digital advertising, she owns Alphabet rather than Facebook. Alphabet is not being hit with as much regulatory interest as Facebook at this point, and it provides a very popular service, the leading search engine, that integrates naturally with the advertising.

Google vs. Alibaba: He owns both. Both have leadership in the West and China, respectively. Under 25% of Google's revenue stream comes from the search engine, then they re-invest it. The search engine is like a piggybank and takes up a huge proportion of overall online advertising revenue. Similarly, Alibaba is dominant in China. They have long runways (as noted in how Google reinvests revenue from searches). As for Trump's tariffs, these are nickels and dimes against the big scheme of themes--unless the tariff war escalates.

Entry point now? The way to think about it is that it’s like a utility. One of their favourite technology investments. When the name is synonymous with the task, that’s a dominant position. Stock has had a great run, but it’s not expensive at 16-17x PE. They’re innovating, investing in all kinds of businesses, they have YouTube which isn’t fully monetized yet. Market pullback is a good time to look at it, but it’s also a difficult market. A great company. You could start a position now and take a very long-term view. Comfortable it’ll be higher in 5-10 years.
