Apple is not cheap but it seems like a quality business

Unless management is able to create some moat, Netflix will be in trouble very soon

Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google all lend a letter of their name to the acronym Faang. But they’re really not a homogeneous group. While they all seem overvalued by some measure, Apple and Facebook are the shining ones that may worth an investment. Amazon’s business is great but the stock is way overvalued; Netflix is so easily replicable than at current prices it is just to pass and Google is so so in terms of prices.
