If I think back to the brands that were commonly found in my parent’s world when they were growing up, I think about some solid stocks and household names like Coca-Cola and Johnson & Johnson or local brands like Anglo American, Pick n Pay and Old Mutual. It’s sometimes weird to think that 20 years ago there was no such thing as Facebook, especially since the average person now spends 13 minutes of their day there. This could be why Millenials are (slightly) obsessed with the opportunity to invest in tech start ups like Facebook, SnapChat, Twitter, or Tesla.
There’s also some interesting arguments out there about which tech stocks are the best to invest in, like this story on Facebook Vs. Snapchat from Investopedia or another story by Investors.com, which looks at How Much Higher Will Facebook, Tesla Shares Go?
Seeing that he’s a bit of a Musk-ateer and a Silicon Valley freak I wanted to pick #TeamEasy member Odwa Magwentshu’s brain on what he thinks about investing in tech start ups. Here’s our chat, but hey… join in on the conversation and let us know what you think on Twitter.
