FANG, the acronym for Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Neflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL), was the trade of the year for 2015, rising an average 81%. However, top Internet analyst Mark Maheney from RBC Capital has some new predictions for 2016: BAGEL.

BAGEL stands for Alibaba (NYSE: BABA), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL), Expedia (NASDAQ: EXPE) and LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD).
