Hot Growth Stocks To Buy Right Now

It’s been an unsettling stretch for tech investors, but the Nasdaq looks on track to escape with a weekly loss of less than 1%.

And our call of the day provides some tech support.

The recent slump for Silicon Valley titans and other growth stocks is “temporary and primarily driven by technical/quant flows,” say J.P. Morgan’s U.S. equity strategists.

It’s time to keep betting on the Facebooks and Apples of the world, because we’re in an environment where growth opportunities are scarce and expectations are becoming less great — and that means investors are willing to pay up for such stocks, the strategists say. Their graphic below underscores that point.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Job-hopping is so common these days it’s practically something employers come to expect. The typical worker will have 12 different employers in his or her lifetime, and millennials are certainly no exception. In fact, younger workers are statistically twice as likely to leave their jobs in search of better offers, according to new data from Visier. And while you’d think money would be the driving force in their decisions, here are some of the other pressing reasons why millennials have such a strong tendency to jump ship.

1. They’re not getting promoted

Getting promoted is something workers of all ages strive for. But millennials in particular seem to be fixated on career growth and rightfully so. And in a day and age when a new job could be a simple click or phone call away, workers who haven’t yet planted roots at a given company might have no problem moving on if they feel they’re not being presented with early opportunities to climb the ladder.
