CNBC Mad Money host Jim Cramer went on CNBC’s Off the Charts on February 5, 2013 and coined the acronym “FANG”—Facebook, Amazon.com, Netflix and Google. Cramer said that these four Internet stocks represented the future of technology.
In July 2015, after the four FANG companies reported high earnings, “FANG is back!” was declared by Cramer. FANG is often expanded to “FAANG” (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google).
“FANTA” is a similar acronym that stands for Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Tesla and Alphabet. “NOSH” stands for Nike, O’Reilly, Starbucks and Home Depot. “MAGS” stands for Microsoft, Amazon, Google and Salesforce. The ‘Nifty Nine” includes FANG, plus Priceline, Ebay, Starbucks, Microsoft and Salesforce.
“MAGA” (Microsoft, Apple, Google and Amazon) is similar to the “MAGA” slogan popularized by Donald Trump in his 2016 presidential campaign, “Make America Great Again.”

The first group that stood out to Cramer, was the FANG. That stands for Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google.
“Tonight’s surprise profit reported by Amazon and the concomitant almost instant 20 percent rise in its shares. You know what? That might take the cake of FANG! What can I say? We have loved FANG on ‘Mad Money’ and we don’t think these internet stars are done shining and I do not think that Amazon can be contained even if it is up 100 to 150 points,” Cramer said.
Will FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) strike again?

SAN FRANCISCO — Will FANG strike again?
Facebook shares rose nearly 2% to $96.95 on Friday as investors anticipated the release of the giant social network’s second-quarter financial results next week.
Driving that anticipation: FANG, the acronym coined years ago by CNBC Mad Money host Jim Cramer. It stands for Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google.
And as Cramer puts it: FANG is back.
“We have loved FANG on Mad Money and we don’t think these Internet stars are done shining,” he said on his show.
