FANG is one of the most commonly used abbreviations in the world of finance. Jim Kramer coined it in 2013 to refer to the stocks of four fast-growing internet companies: Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google. Later, investors started to add more technology companies to this group, which led to FAANG, FAAMG, and FANG Plus formation.
