Show Notes

The title may sound like a vampire holiday movie, but most investors will be familiar with the term FAANG as an acronym for some of the most exciting tech companies in the world (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google).

The term BEACH is less common and is used to describe travel and leisure industries that will benefit from a return to normality after the pandemic.

In Episode 24 of Magic Markets, hosts The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla (Moe-Knows.com) discuss the companies behind the acronyms and what investors should be thinking about when analysing them.
