Worried About Tariffs? Why This Trader Likes FAANG, Disney, Adobe

Just don't have tariffed-materials exposure and don't have China exposure.

That's the game plan for veteran trader and RealMoney contributor Sarge Guilfoyle.

Trump threatened 10% to to 25% additional tariffs on August 1 on apparel, toy and electronic goods coming into the U.S. from China.

When stocks sold off, a few big tech names that don't have much cost exposure in China got sold off as well.

"I like the FAANG (Facebook , Apple , Amazon , Netflix , Google ) names because they have very, they have no exposure to China.

They're not even allowed to compete in China," Guilfoyle said.

Apple is vulnerable to tariffs from a cost perspective, but the others are not.

They've all sold off since August 1, the day Trump threatened additional tariffs.

"I'd rather have Disney than Netflix," Guilfoyle added.

Netflix's most recent earnings report showed a large total net subscriber adds miss, as Disney ramps up its own streaming and direct-to-consumer media platforms, including a bundled service.

Elsewhere, "You might find discounts among the Adobe's ," Guilfyole said.

Adobe was at above $300 a share a week ago, before dropping to $280.

It has, indeed rebounded to $296.
