Closing out the end out of my #GOOGL position for now, as Amazon and Facebook are taking share from them. Management painted a less-than-positive picture on the earnings call. Price: $1,186.64

TRADE: Closing Amgen

#AMGN has some legal risk that has come to light, so I'm just going to dump it and take a very small loss. Price: $190.77
