Best Heal Care Stocks To Watch Right Now

What do Adobe, eBay, and Microsoft all have in common?

Wait, before you answer, let me add a few more names to that list, like Yahoo, Capital One, Uber, Marriott, and Home Depot.

All of these companies have been the target of criminal cyber-attacks. Like cancer, malicious hacking doesnt discriminate it infects organizations large and small, young and old. Attackers have become ever more brazen and sophisticated in their digital assaults on corporate and government entities.

And as my colleague Jimmy Butts pointed out recently, this is (already) leading to a huge opportunity for companies combatting this threat — and for the investors who deploy their money in them.

The Birth (And Growth) Of Cybercrime

This is nothing new, of course. Some of the earliest cyber heists date back to the 1980s when the internet was still in its infancy. But the first major attack in the online era occurred in 2005 when DSW Shoes discovered that the names and credit card numbers of more than a million customers had been pilfered.

    A cursory glance at the price chart of Enphase Energy throughout 2021 points, again, to a buy-the-dip opportunity.

The good news is that ENPH shares are currently riding upward momentum. That momentum should continue based on its July 27 earnings report.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    One disadvantage for Southwest Airlines is that customers have to bring their own food along. Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) still offers complimentary meals for customers in coach, and other airlines have buy-onboard options. By contrast, Southwest’s planes have small galleys, so the carrier will only offer a “snack bag” on its Hawaii flights. Many travelers may want at least the option of a hot meal for what can be a six-hour flight.

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    Shares of Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) cratered on Monday, falling 11% as Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) finally began selling tickets for its long-awaited Hawaii flights. The stock continued to move downward on Tuesday.

    Hawaiian (NASDAQ:HA) was downgraded by stock analysts at BidaskClub from a “hold” rating to a “sell” rating in a research report issued to clients and investors on Wednesday.
