Top High Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

Well, sometimes, but first you have to be able to get the shares. For example, Snap, Inc. trading under the ticker SNAP, priced its 200 million share public offering yesterday at $17 a share, became completely oversubscribed, and today is trading at a 40 percent premium.

    Tech still has the reins when it comes to leadership for this tape, though this looked a bit shaky over the past three days. Trader talk has surfaced about a rotation out of the sector, namely the large-cap names (the FAANGs and the SOX heavyweights), and into financials and energy over the past three days. We’ve seen some of this materialize in that timespan: FB -2%, GOOGL -1.6%, NFLX -1.4%, SOX -1.1%, AAPL -0.8% vs the KBW Bank index (BKX) +2.4%, thanks to the 10-year yield crawling back to 3%, and the energy SPDR ETF (XLE) gaining 1.8% with the crude pullback subsiding.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Buy Right Now

If you are interested in owning one of the bluest-chip companies on the planet while generating a 15 percent annualized return over the next five years, then Nestlé (NSRGY) is just the stock for you.

At least that is what legendary hedge fund manager Dan Loeb of Third Point Capital thinks, provided Nestlé is willing to heed his words of advice.

I think Mr. Loeb may be just the kick in the pants this great old company needs right now.

Let me explain…

Nestlé — 152 Birthday Candles And Counting

Nestlé is an absolute juggernaut of a business. It has a market capitalization (number of shares outstanding multiplied by the share price) of nearly $240 billion which places the company on the edge of being one of the ten largest companies on the planet.

This is a blue, blue, blue chip if there ever was one.

Nestlé has its base of operations in Vevey, Switzerland. The company had been around for quite some time — 152 years to be exact. I guess you could say that the business has proved to have some staying power.

Hot High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

The stock market finally hit some resistance on Tuesday, giving up ground and breaking a long streak of consecutive advances for most major benchmarks. Market participants got spooked by a rise in interest rates, with 10-year Treasury yields once again climbing above the 3% mark and leading some to predict even steeper advances in the future. With budget deficits ballooning, higher interest expenses on the national debt could have a dramatic impact on the U.S. economy, especially if it lures investors away from high-flying stocks. Yet even amid the bond-driven downturn, some individual companies saw good news lift their shares. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), Hollysys Automation Technologies (NASDAQ:HOLI), and Ascena Retail Group (NASDAQ:ASNA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Valeant gets a good review

Shares of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International almost 4% after the drug company received favorable comments from analysts. Mizuho Securities raised its rating on Valeant from neutral to buy, pushing its price target higher by 80% to $27 per share. The pharma stock saw one of the most dramatic plunges in the industry in recent years, triggered by scandals about its business model, but Valeant has worked hard to reposition itself strategically to emphasize its highest-growth treatment prospects while restoring its reputation. Valeant still has a long way to go, but positive analysis from Wall Street is a sign that the drugmaker is making progress.
