Which FANG Stock Would You Rather Invest In?

The FANG index has wrapped up its latest earnings season.

FANG is the acronym created by Jim Cramer, representing four of the most popular and best-performing tech stocks in recent memory: Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL).

So, which FANG stock looks most attractive in the long term?

According to our Twitter poll, Facebook is the big winner with 43 percent of the vote. Amazon finished just behind at 29 percent, while Alphabet grabbed 20 percent. Netflix was a distant last-place finish, with just 8 percent.

A Closer Look

Facebook continues to dominate the social media and Internet landscape, beating estimates on earnings, revenue and MAUs. The stock hit a new all-time closing high of $117.58 on Friday.

Amazon posted its highest profit ever, leading the stock nearly all the way back (closed Friday at $659) to the all-time highs it was trading at last summer.

Due to slowing international growth, Netflix crashed more than 10 percent following its earnings release. The stock last closed at $90.03; Shares opened the year above the $120 level.

Alphabet, formerly Google, took a big hit after missing earnings estimates by more than $0.40 per share. The stock closed Friday at $707.88, after trading at $780 just one week prior.
