Millennials may be a fan of “Netflix and chill,” but they aren’t as excited to have the streaming stock in their portfolios for the long term.

The top choice among millennial investors was Amazon,with more than 50% of the vote, followed by Google, Apple, then Netflix. Facebook, the social-media giant, is the stock that millennials are least interested in holding for the next decade. Taking just 2% of the share, it was last on the list.
Even though Netflix isn’t the most popular stock for millennials looking to build their investment portfolios, it’s enjoyed a solid performance in 2020. The streaming service has gained 50% this year, outpacing the broader market, as investors have piled into technology stocks poised to perform well amid the coronavirus pandemic and ensuing recession.
