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. As things go, that was a small-scale theft.

    A cursory glance at the price chart of Enphase Energy throughout 2021 points, again, to a buy-the-dip opportunity. ENPH stock prices have risen steadily out of a trough in May, going from $114 to $164 currently. Share prices were well above $200 in early 2021. 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:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    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.

A similar plant will be open in the UAE in the next few years.

Even in the Middle East, home to some of the world&a;rsquo;s largest oil and gas producers, the clean energy revolution is coming.

Thanks to its fast-growing population and rapid economic growth, its demand for energy is set to grow by 3.5 % a year over the next two decades, according to a new report from Siemens, the German conglomerate, and Masdar, the UAE clean energy developer.

Its energy demand is set to grow by 277GW by 2035, to 483GW. A fifth of that will be renewable, up from just over 5% now.
