Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

Snapchat stock Snap Inc (NYSE: SNAP) had a hotly anticipated $3.4 billion March IPO that helped to awaken a struggling U.S. IPO market with shares rising 44% on their first day of trading as more than the entire 200 million-share offering changed hands within the first day. However and since then, Snap Inc has struggled with shares near all time lows as analyst question the Company’s business model, numbers and valuation.

There could be further risk or opportunity on the horizon later this summer. According to JPMorgan (one of the IPO underwriters), an additional 1.2 billion Snap Inc shares, or 84% of the company’s shares outstanding, could flood the market when the company’s lock-up period expires from July 31 to August 31. When that happened to Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR), shares fell 18% to what was then an all-time low; but in the case of Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB), shares actually jumped 11%.

    CRA International (NASDAQ:CRAI) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Charles River Associates has a diversified business with service offerings across areas of functional expertise, client base and geographical regions. The company’s strong global network provides the opportunity to work with the world's leading professionals on multiple issues. An excellent professional team has helped the company to maintain solid reputation for high-quality consulting services focused on economic, financial and management consulting areas. On the flip side, seasonality continues to weigh on Charles River Associates’ top line. Operation in a highly competitive and fragmented economic and management consulting services industry remains a concern. The nature of business makes Charles River Associates’ vulnerable to foreign exchange risk. The company’s shares have underperformed its industry in the past year.”
