2016-06-24 BUY Barry Schwartz

The only FANG stock he likes, because it is the most profitable and has a wonderful balance sheet, and they dominate the search business. This is one you could definitely buy here. Just keep in mind that the Cdn$ is also down. An attractive entry point.

2016-06-20 TOP PICK John Zechner

Best growth in technology. They own the Android operating system and are giving it away for nothing. If you ever monetized that, it would be a huge value for them. What they know about the consumer has so much value. They are positioned better than anybody to get all this growth.

2016-06-03 PAST TOP PICK Jon Vialoux

(A Top Pick April 7/16. Down 3.19%.) This tends to do well between March and July. It essentially runs up into developer conferences which happens at this time of year. If it could break out above the upper limit of $800, you could see further upside. There is still a bit of period of seasonal strength left, up to mid-July, which is the end of the summer rally period.

2016-06-01 BUY on WEAKNESS Elliot Fishman

This is great. Not a typical $5 range kind of stock. Volatile, but has been acting very well. If there is any big drop off on an earning’s hit, etc., he would take that as a buying opportunity.

2016-06-01 HOLD Matthew McCall

One of the strongest, most innovative companies out there. It is going to be a bit volatile. He believes in the big tech companies right now, which have been undervalued for a long time. Not the growth story it once was, but is considered a core technology holding.

2016-04-07 TOP PICK Jon Vialoux

Technology comes into a period of seasonal strength from April all the way through to July. These companies all tend to have a run up higher into their developer conferences. This one’s conference is May 18-May 20. The seasonal strength is between March and July, and the average gain is about 17%, and has been positive in 9 out of the 11 periods. The technicals are still quite positive on this.

2016-04-04 TOP PICK John Zechner

They own Search and are monetizing exceptionally well. Margins are starting to come higher. They are getting the earnings growth that they have wanted for a long time. Generating free cash flow and redeploying it into very strong acquisitions. On top of that, they own the best and one of the largest operating systems in the world, the Android Operating system. They are giving this away for free right now, but at some time they will monetize this.

2016-03-28 PAST TOP PICK Barry Schwartz

(A Top Pick Feb 20/15. Up 37.27%.) He is not enthusiastic about buying this at $700 a share, but it is still a wonderful company. They are super-smart.

2016-02-18 TOP PICK David Burrows

Google is responsible for 64% of all searches done on the Internet.  As traffic grows on the Internet they continue to benefit.  They are in the middle of the shift in the spending in media and are getting the lion’s share of the revenue for advertizing.  Its revenue is accelerating and their margins are improving.  They own YouTube.  He likes defense companies because you never really know what ELSE is in there that can come out and generate revenue later.  Google is the greatest brain child.  It has pulled back 10% but is firmly in an uptrend.

2015-10-27 PAST TOP PICK Don Lato

(A Top Pick Feb 19/15. Up 31.28%.) He continues to like this. The multiple has crept up a little bit over this last year. Earnings have continued to grow. Trading at 20X earnings (17.5 if you strip out the cash). A great company and they dominate the business that they are in.

2015-10-15 TOP PICK Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

He is going for the new company, the hold-co.  There are two businesses.  The old legacy stuff is separated, but this has the rest as well.  It has long term upside.  It generates tons of cash.  He is looking forward to their first earnings release.  He took a small position just to see.  He thinks the market will have better visibility and will like it.

2015-08-26 BUY Gordon Reid

There have been a number of changes to the company in terms of structure. The company will now be called Alphabet, and Google is a division of Alphabet. It is still a company that is involved in Search. They have been successful in monetizing some of their initiatives, most particular YouTube, and have a number of other things that the market is coming to believe will be able to be monetized. Also, have a new CFO that has a more traditional background, and the street likes that. The one thing investors were nervous about was the unpredictability of Google.

He would continue to hold this one.  This is a fantastic franchise.  They own search and it is trading at a market multiple.  The growth is there.

2015-08-06 TOP PICK David Baskin

Disclaimer: His son works as software engineer at Google. Recently, Google's stock had a big jump after they announced their quarterly results. He thinks it is still a very, very interesting stock. Google is a wild card because you don't know what they will do next. They are always coming out with fabulous products, like driverless cars. They are an innovative company with lots of cash. They keep making money on advertising and the search. He is a happy holder of this stock.
