Martin Smith from Anchor Securities chose Amazon as his stock pick of the day and Robert Towell from Sasfin Securities chose to stay in cash.

Smith said: “On the back of the news out of the US with regards to all the antitrust issues we saw the FANGS [Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google] take a bit of a knock. I use that as an opportunity to top us on a few shares there. I think Amazon is the pick of the bunch though.”
