Chamath Palihapitiya shares his views on investing and digital currencies in an exclusive interview for CNBC PRO with Jeff Cox from the sidelines of the Delivering Alpha conference on Sept. 12.

These are one of the few sets of companies that are predictably growing true earnings," he said. "They actually are generating real change, real innovation, making real money ... I much rather be long Netflix, Facebook, Amazon and Google than for example Wal-Mart, Target, CVS etc.
