FBAs most of you now, I hold a decent portion of my savings in Facebook (FB) so seeing Zuckerberg pull off an incredibly bold move, paying $19B for WhatsApp is incredibly impressive, I’m still wrapping my head around it although I generally think it’s a very good move. More on that soon I’m sure:)

The other stock that I have a big stake on is Apple (AAPL) of course. I finally did take the time to explain in detail why I believe its ecosystem alone makes it a no-brainer:

    Hey IS,

    Thanks for the update – I don’t see that Facebook has a dividend? Are you also investing in non-dividend stocks as well?

    @James – Yes, absolutely, I mostly do dividend+etf and technology stocks..!
