2 FAANG Stocks to Buy in 2023 and 1 to Avoid: Here's Why (7 min read)

This article suggests that among the FAANG stocks, Alphabets and Amazon have the most potential to beat the market this year.

Since then, it has exceeded the upper ceiling a number of times. Economists believe that the Bank of Japan will scrap the yield curve control policy altogether in its January meeting this week, while keeping its key rate unchanged.
