When the subject is US technology stocks is broached, the first port of call for many is the FAANG stocks – a catch-all acronym for some of the biggest companies in the world: Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google owner Alphabet (GOOGL).

It’s no surprise, of course, as these stocks have rewarded investors handsomely over the years. In the past five years, the only one of these five companies that wouldn’t have doubled investors’ cash in US dollar terms was Google. Since the most recent of the IPOs in 2012, Apple’s 160% is the worst you’d have done.
