FANG Stocks Will Eventually Crack

In a recent interview, Jim Rogers drew a parallel between the FANG stocks (Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GGOG)) and the Nifty 50, a group of stocks that kept rallying in the seventies when the general bull market in stocks was about to end. The Nifty 50 included stocks like Coca-Cola (KO), General Electric (GE) and International Bussiness Machines (IBM).

Jim Rogers noted that these high momentum, big cap Nasdaq stocks are currently holding the indexes but that they will eventually crack: 

“Everything else stopped going up but those Nifty 50, which would be something like the FANGs today, or maybe in the late ‘90s [during the dot com bubble], some of the other kinds of stocks. So this has happened before in market history. They eventually crack, there’s no question.”

Investing In Russia

Jim Rogers noted recently that investors are starting to invest in Russia again (the Russian stock ETF (Market Vector Russia ETF Trust (RSX)) is the worst performing country ETF in 2017):

“We have seen some people starting to invest in Russia again. This is just the continuation of the same process. It is happening, more will happen, but it will not be so fast."

Jim Rogers also does not expect the rating agencies (S&P and Moody’s) to raise Russia’s ratings due to political pressures:

“I wouldn’t think it could be soon. They have a lot of geopolitical pressure than they admit and most people realize.”

Focus On Stocks That Are Not On The ETFs Radars

In a recent interview with MarketWatch, Jim Rogers urges investors to focus on stocks that are not on the exchange traded funds (ETFs) radars: 

“If somebody can just take the time to focus on the stocks that are not in the ETFs, there must be fabulous opportunities in those stocks because they’re ignored. Some of them have got to be doing very, very well. And nobody’s buying them, because only the ETFs buy stocks.”

The Risks Of Holding ETF’s

In a recent interview with MarketWatch, Jim Rogers highlighted the risks of owning Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) when a bear market in stocks eventually arrives:

"When we have the bear market, a lot of people are going to find that, ‘Oh my God, I own an ETF, and they collapsed. It went down more than anything else.’ And the reason it will go down more than anything else is because that’s what everybody owns."

I know there's lots and lots of opportunities in Asia, I just see them every day but that does not mean you shouldn't stay with what you know.
