Stock Watch - Stock picks — Equinix Inc and BAT

Nesan Nair from Sasfin Securities chose Equinix Inc as his stock pick of the day and Gerbrand Smit from N-e-F-G Fund Managers chose British American Tobacco

Nair said: "I'm going with Equinix, it's one of the biggest cloud infrastructure providers and this is an alternative to holding traditional property."

Smit said: "I'm maintaining my pic of British American Tobacco, it's still at valuation levels that are just to cheap. We've seen volume growth for the first time in a while and at a valuation of about half of what it was a year back, I think it's a steal."
