David Shapiro from Sasfin Securities chose Google parent Alphabet as his stock pick of the day and Wayne McCurrie from FNB Wealth and Investments chose Shoprite. Shapiro said: “I like Google and I think gaming — subscription-type gaming, downloading gaming and streaming gaming — is still a huge area and as Google is going into that I think it is going to add just another dimension to this incredible business.” McCurrie said: “Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think that the future for SA is as bad as its past and there is some seriously good value in local shares. I’m going for Shoprite. I know I went for it a while back and the share price has since gone down, but the shares are not bad value.”
