FAANG, or Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google (now Alphabet), is an acronym. The stocks of these businesses, which are among the biggest and most prominent in the world of technology, are frequently referred to as the "FAANG stocks."

The strong market positions, creative business structures, and cutting-edge technology of the FAANG stocks are well-known. The biggest online retailer in the world is Amazon, the biggest social networking site in the world is Facebook, the biggest video streaming service is Netflix, and the biggest search engine and online advertising network in the world is Google. Apple is the biggest technology company in the world by revenue.

Due to robust sales and profit growth, as well as investor excitement about their long-term prospects, the FAANG companies have outperformed the overall market in recent years. Nonetheless, they have furthermore come under regulatory review and public attention for matters including data privacy, antitrust difficulties, and the social impact of their platforms.
