It seems not a day goes by where we don’t hear about the performance of the F.A.N.G. stocks and how they do nothing but go up.  Even with Amazon’s (AMZN) current decline of nearly 10% from its intraday all-time high last week, the F.A.N.G. stocks are up an average of over 30% since the election.  While no one is going to quibble with a 30% gain, the return of the F.A.N.G. stocks look nothing more than utilitarian when compared to the performance of the New York Times (NYT) during this same period.  Helped in part by strong earnings this quarter, the Times has put up practically “all the returns that are fit to print” with a not so failing rally of 70% since the election!
