Top High Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Imagine spending a lifetime acquiring habits that offer the promise of a longer, happier and more fulfilling life. Then imagine that to have that fulfilling life, you suddenly must abandon all those habits.

Not easy, is it? But thats what happens when people go from work to retirement, from saving money to spending it. Too often, the same personality traits that facilitate saving for retirement become impediments when it is time to spend that money. The mental tricks we employ while working become mental mistakes when we move into the next phase of our lives.

Gold prices were little-changed in early in European trading after the bullion touched a five-month high in Asia as investors piled into safe-haven assets around the world amid rising geopolitical tensions. 

Spot gold was marked 0.01% lower at $1,274.30 per ounce in early London trading after reaching a five-month high of $1,279.80 in Asia dealing amid a retreat from risk assets such as stocks and corporate bonds. 

Gold mining stocks were also lower, with Randgold Resources (GOLD) falling around 1.5% and Fresnillo Plc (FNLPF) slipping 0.85%. Randgold’s 10.66% advance over the past three months, however, has nearly doubled that of spot gold prices while Fresnillo’s 15.82% rise is nearly three times higher than the bullion’s gain over the same period.

Stocks took it on the chin today after the U.K. voted to bail on the European Union, something that just one day ago seemed highly unlikely.

Richard Drew/Associated Press

As a result, the losses were huuuge.The S&P 500 fell 3.6% to 2,037.30, its largest drop since Aug. 24, 2015. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 611.21 points, or 3.4%, to17399.86, its largest one-day percentage decline since Aug. 24, 2015. The Nasdaq Composite tumbled 4.1% to 4,707.98, its largest drop since Aug. 8, 2011.

And those numbers don’t necessarily do the selloff justice, though this one might: 47 stocks in the S&P 500 plunged at least 8% today, more than the 39 that finished in positive territory. Can you say “nowhere to hide?”

Yet despite the carnage, the week wasn’t all that bad. The S&P 500 fell 1.6% this week, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1.6% this week, and the Nasdaq Composite finished off 1.9% this week. In fact, the folks at Bespoke Investment Group say “we got off easy.” They explain why:

Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2018

On November 5, Oracle (NYSE:ORCL)confirmed that it has finally completed the acquisition of Netsuite (NYSE:N) for $9.3 billion in cash, or $109 per share that the company had initially offered. In my previous article about Oracle, I had suggested that the acquisition of NetSuite, the cloud business application software company, is a smart move by Oracle. What’s more, it is not paying an excessive price for the deal. In fact, Oracle insisted that it will not pay more than what it had first offered despite the resistance from T Rowe Price (NSDQ:TROW)which demanded $133 per share.

T. Rowe had about a 13% stake in NetSuite before the deal, the largest holdings after Oracle’s Chairman Larry Ellison who owned about 40% of NetSuite shares. Although Oracle’s offer represented a premium of 19% on NetSuite’s closing stock price of $91.57 on the day before the bid, T. Rowe was of the opinionthat the NetSuite shares were worth more. However, Oracle showed a disciplined behavior insisting on the initial offer, which it considered fair value, and after receiving approval from a majority of the unaffiliated shares of NetSuite (excluding Mr. Ellison’s shares), the deal was closed.

Top 5 High Tech Stocks To Buy For 2018: Canon, Inc.(CAJ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Nikon’s story is similar to what’s plaguing its Japanese rival, Canon (NYSE: CAJ  ) . Canon’s stock has nosedived by 20% year to date, but the stock’s recovered nearly 3% over the past month. Don’t let appearances fool you: The company slashed its full-year sales and profit forecasts back in July, as the worldwide camera market has slumped, and as smartphones continue to take over this aging niche. Canon’s route back to respectability looks like a treacherous climb.

Given the unprecedented turn of events around the UK general election result, there will “undoubtedly be an impact” on the UK and London housing market, London Central Portfolio Limited (LCP), a real-estate advisory firm that has built up around $1 billion of assets under management since 1990, has contended. By how much is the key question.

It might be premature to jump to predictions but the UK is in somewhat uncharted territory until the dust settles. Not again I hear you say. But one thing markets don’t like is uncertainty.

The outcome of the British general election has certainly thrown a spanner in the works for Prime Minister Theresa May, with several of her key advisors resigning this weekend. But it was a scenario and a possibility that I had written about in a recent Forbes post just days prior to the election.

Prior to this there was an insightful piece by Rod Liddle, associate editor of The Spectator and former editor of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, who wrote weeks before the election. In it said don’t discount the possibility of an upset and the polls getting it wrong. They’ve been wrong before – over the EU referendum in June 2016 and U.S. Presidential election last November.

indian stock market news: Celanese Corporation(CE)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Time To Favor Optionality: Most macro data are similar to, or better than, when the merger was announced. As a result, the same returns have been obtainable, with significantly less stress, simply through owning 3M (MMM) or a basket of chemical companies that approximate the Dow-DuPont portfolio. Relative to the chemical sector, performance has been average, leverage appears reasonable but near-term FCF less-than compelling partly due to new capacity ramping. With the merger likely to close in the near-term (90% chance, in our view), we believe Dow-DuPont will have an opportunity to show how scale creates optionality. The overhaul at Celanese (CE) over the past few years shows the way.
