3 Recent Buys – GOOGL, FB, BABA

A quick update on recent buys in my portfolio. A lot of high profile investors are coming out of the woodworks to warn that the stock market is overvalued, but I’ve continued investing over the week.

  • First purchase: I added to my position in Alphabet Inc (GOOGL) @ $1,345.00. Alphabet has shown a lot of resilience with the ad market facing headwinds, thanks to the great balance sheet & continued buybacks putting a floor on the stock price.
  • Second purchase: I initiated a new position in Facebook Inc (FB) @ $203.00. I missed out on buying FB when it was trading around $170 & missed it by $1 and the stock ran away from me. Like GOOGL, FB is facing some headwinds thanks to the recession & everyone cutting their ad budgets. I believe FB (like GOOGL) provides a lot of optionality thanks to the innovation on a fronts such as AI, AR/VR, Libra/payments etc.
  • Third purchase: I initiated a new position in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (BABA) @ $196.96. Alibaba is a behemoth in the e-commerce space and provides plenty of exposure to the Asian market. In addition to the e-commerce, BABA provides good growth opportunities in fintech space (via their stake in Ant Financial), cloud offerings, entertainment (streaming services), and lots of other strategic initiatives.
