Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

What happened

After the Food and Drug Administration greenlit the use of software that can suspend insulin when its insulin pump is used in conjunction with DexCom’s (NASDAQ:DXCM) continuous glucose monitor (CGM), shares of Tandem Diabetes Care (NASDAQ:TNDM) are rallying 10.2% at 12:45 p.m. EDT on Friday.

So what

Historically, diabetes patients can spend up to 70% of their day outside their desired blood glucose range, and as a result, they’re at risk of seeing their disease progress to a point where it causes life-threatening complications.

In a bid to better control blood sugar levels, doctors and patients are increasingly embracing monitors that can track blood sugar levels in real time and pumps that provide background insulin. The use of these systems together can conceivably automate insulin dosing. However, software that can predict future blood sugar levels to avoid the risk of hypoglycemia, or ultra-low levels of blood sugar that can be life-threatening, is necessary for that to happen.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Watch Right Now

An old trader once told me, “Trading is the hardest easy money you’ll ever make.” 

In theory, trading is easy enough — all you have to do is buy low and sell high, right? After all, there are thousands of books claiming to have all the information we’ll ever need.

In practice, however, trading is among the most difficult activities in the financial world. Despite the availability of a wealth of information, few do it well.

In fact, all that accessible information actually makes it harder to trade successfully. 

Think about that for a moment. 

If you could really win in the markets by simply buying stocks with low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios, then we would all be successful. As an old trader also once told me, “To know what everyone knows is to know nothing.” If everyone has the same tools, it’s difficult to use them to gain an advantage over everyone else.

The secret to beating the market — and your fellow investors — is to use little-known indicators, which act like secret weapons for trading.

    Given the need for food and energy in order to support booming population growth in emerging markets, there’ll be a need for significant investment in sustainable water solutions. It’s a compelling long-term investment case, and I think Danaher Corporation (NYSE:DHR), Xylem Inc. (NYSE:XYL) and Pentair plc (NYSE:PNR) are stocks well-placed to play the investment theme. One of the interesting things about water is that there’s no lack of it or difficulty in finding it; the problem is ensuring its quality (for both potable water and wastewater) and transporting it to the right places.
