For those of you who have not been exposed, the media has dubbed a set of stocks with the acronym FANG, which stands for Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google. You may be wondering why these four stocks, and the reason is that these stocks have been able to perform through thick and thin, providing investors with solid returns. In the piece, I want to breakdown why each of these may continue to perform and maintain their elite status among others.

If we are taking a look at the overall market, we can see that the Nasdaq has done extremely well, out performing the other two major indices in the United States. There are several reasons for why that might be, but the first one many people may think of is the technology component of the Nasdaq.

For those who actively immerse themselves in market news, there is a debate it seems going between exchange traded funds or ETF’s for short, and mutual funds. Mutual funds are made up of holdings, which people can enter and exit the funds fairly easily depending on the fund. There may be a minimum investment amount depending on the fund and price is typically set at the end of the day. An exchange traded fund is traded on the open market with price moving potentially every second of the day. The ETF’s are made up holdings similar to a mutual fund and those are used to help mimic a certain index or market sector.

This deal has been going on for quite some time, and just recently the FTC has stated that Walgreens would be unable to purchase all of the Rite Aid stores due to the potential lack of competition. While competition in the market is healthy, Rite Aid is left with Walgreens on purchasing some of their stores, leaving them with others that they may not want, need, or are able to operate.

Beer in America is going through a revival of sorts and micro brewing has taken off to levels unseen. With that, the market is becoming overcrowded and there is a potential for the scene to scale back. Until then, Constellation brands is continuing to fight these little brands that are taking valuable market share all across America. Premium beer has a new look and taste and that does not bode well for these large companies that produce brands we know, but their quality is subpar compared to others.

Despite beating on nearly everything on their Q2 earnings, the stock has begun to pull back and many believe it could just be profit taking or fear the company will not continue their success. Either way, many agree that Hasbro is still one of the top stock in the toy industry and with the holiday season rapidly approaching, this can only mean there will be a greater wind in the company’s stock potential.

As the next generation is leaving college, they not only have bright futures ahead of them they also are carrying debts that could cripple their ability to spend and continue feeding the consumer economy we have created. The average student loan debt level is around the $30,000 mark, and that does not seem like much, but for someone starting out that can drive dollars away from spending and instead into areas such as food and shelter.

The large purple company that advertises themselves as an exercise facility and not a gym, promoting a judgment free zone, enables people to join a health facility without the pressures of not knowing how to navigate a gym. A traditional gym intimidates many people and this company hopes to eliminate that fear.

With minimum wage being discussed more and more, people fail to mention there are going to be business implications. Of course the living conditions and wage benefits are extremely valid, but business will adjust in ways that cause people to begin finding a new issue, and that is lack of minimum wage jobs.

McDonalds

McDonalds has been around for decades and continues to provide America their fast food needs. With the push for fresher and healthier options, McDonalds has gone to a few sandwiches that are fresh and unfrozen beef. The hopes is that will boost sales, but relying on one meal alone wont be enough as the pressures continue to grow for healthier and fresher options. Now that Amazon may be entering the food market it could lead to a tighter space than it already is.
