MAGS (Microsoft, Amazon, Google and Salesforce)

Deutsche Bank invented the acronym “MAGS” (Microsoft, Amazon, Google and Salesforce) in December 2015 to describe four high-performing tech stocks.

“FANG” is a similar acronym that stands for Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google. “FAANG” stands for Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google. “FANTA” stands for Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Tesla and Alphabet. “NOSH” stands for Nike, O’Reilly, Starbucks and Home Depot.
