Both Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) and Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL)Google’s parent company seems to be a must buy in today’s market environment with strong balance sheets, positive margins and moderate growth, but what if you could only pick one? In today’s video, I’m explaining why Facebook might be the best investment for the future.
Several reasons why Facebook is better than Google
- Future growth: Analysts believe Facebook will grow faster than Alphabet in the next few years. Facebook is also very aggressively pursuing virtual reality development, which many believe will soon flourish.
- Stronger margin: When you look at key metrics for each company, such as profit margins, gross margins, and operating margin cash flow, Facebook always seems to be at its best.
- Rating: Looking at future and current P / E ratios, Facebook is cheaper than Alphabet, although, as mentioned earlier, it has better margins and higher growth expectations.
