FAANG stocks unlikely to outperform in 2018: analyst
The so-called FAANG companies -- Facebook Inc. , Amazon.com Inc. , Apple Inc. , Netflix Inc. , and Alphabet Inc.'s Google -- have been big winners in 2017, but analysts at Morgan Stanley think that the stocks are less likely to see sizable gains heading into the new year. 'While we believe that fundamental drivers for these stocks remain intact, history indicates returns may moderate their pace and we question whether growth over value can continue to be as meaningful a driver of returns,' wrote the analysts, led by Benjamin Swinburne. These five stocks account for about 24% of the S&P 500's incremental market cap, he wrote, but Morgan Stanley's analysis indicates that top performers, on average, 'do not outperform the following year.' Swinburne deems Google most exposed to a consumer recession, and Netflix least exposed. Facebook shares have gained 56% so far in 2017, compared with 55% for Amazon, 49% for Apple, 51% for Netflix, and 33% for Alphabet. The S&P 500 is up 19% this year.
