This is the perfect time to build a concentrated stock-picker's portfolio. Now is not the time to own the whole market. The people who started using AMZN-Q over the crisis will not stop using it. They are about to go back to one day delivery. The stock itself consolidated for 18 months before it broke out recently. (Analysts’ price target is $2651.57)

(A Top Pick Apr 17/19, Up 25%) He likes the big mega-cap tech companies. Over 11 years in their history, they are in the right place at the right time. Their AWS business now accounts for 70% of revenues. They are going to own the cloud business for years to come. If there is pressure for growth, they can increase margins. Still in his Top 5 holdings. His target is $2650.

Currently at resistance levels. He owns a 3.5-5.5% position. He hasn't touched this in six months, thank goodness. Many investors are now realizing how valuable this company is in good times and bad, as reflected in the current stock price. One area that will explode for them is Amazon Go convenience stores, these walk-out stores, which will be the next billion-dollar business and push the stock above $2,300. There will opportunities to buy this during earnings season. He buys in thirds, one at a time.

AMZN vs BABA? He thinks AMZN is safer at the moment. It could see earnings actually rise in the near term. People are using them to get essentials at home. The consumer staple space is fairing better than consumer discretionary. He likes what AMZN is doing longer term. They control 40% of the global cloud capacity.

Certainly you should look at all high tech names, especially those with a monopoly. He prefers AMZN-Q and MSFT-Q. If Trump did not tell companies to move out of China, then certainly CoVid19 did.

AMZN vs. MSFT Prefers Microsoft, and can justify the valuation at these levels, but wait for a pullback of 5-10% to buy. MSFT has a very strong balance sheet and net cash position. It's transitioning to a subscription model. Cloud business is growing well. For 1-2 year horizon, MSFT will continue to do well.

It's really a loss-leader. Profits lie in the server side (the cloud) with only a few players in this space like MSFT. That said, this will continue to grow. Valuation is very high, but this will remain a growth leader with segments like Amazon Prime doing well.

It's been lagging the last 18 months while the other FANGs were partying. The $3-billion to build their AWS cloud business and overnight shipping system have paid off. Revenue growth of 21% is amazing for a company this size. Outperformance will continue. (Analysts’ price target is $2411.52)

You could've bought this for most of the last 18 months, based on valuation, such as end-December 2018. Problem was margin compression as competitors gave away free shipping. So, Amazon started to push one-day shipping, but it temporarily compressed margins with higher costs. Now, there's operational leverage and wider margins. Also, they're shifting to providing payments and logistics to other merchants and this offers wide margins. AWS are also profitable. He'd stick with it. It's an excellent business.
