How To Play GOOG And FB As Big Tech Sells Off

Two of America's technology giants – some of the biggest, richest companies on Earth – are under significant regulatory pressure right now.

The U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and dozens of U.S. states are suing Alphabet Inc.'s (NASDAQ: GOOG) Google while they build cases against Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB). They're alleging individual and collusive anticompetitive behavior.

The tech mega-caps, of course, aren't taking it lying down. They're fighting it out in the court of public opinion, in a legal and public relations battle royale.

Google, which is being hammered hard over its virtual advertising monopoly, retorted in a blog, "To suggest that the ad tech sector is lacking competition is simply not true, to the contrary, the industry is famously crowded. There are thousands of companies, large and small, working together and in competition with each other to power digital advertising across the web, each with different specialties and technologies."

Hundreds of thousands of investors, large and small, own hundreds of millions of shares in these two tech juggernauts. Regular peoples' retirements are tied up in this, as are their kids' college funds, their nest eggs.

So the stakes in this fight are particularly – some might even say frighteningly – high.

Well, I'm here to tell you: No need to be scared. I'm going to show you exactly how and when to deploy and maneuver your precious capital in this case. And if you do as I'm recommending, you could significantly boost your bottom line…

Here's What Could Happen to Google

Google is in serious trouble. The company's already been sued by the European Commission (EC) for everything U.S. regulators and states are going after it for; it lost on every front in Europe. Google must abide by new rules imposed by the EC while it appeals.

The EC's accusations and findings, as well as the resolutions it imposed on Google, are a perfect roadmap U.S. attorneys general, the Justice Department, and Federal Trade Commission can easily follow as they push Google down the same dead-end street it hit in Europe.
