Top 10 Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: AVG Technologies N.V.(AVG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Igor Novgorodtsev]

    InterActiveCorp (IACI) bought Ask.com for $1.85 billion in 2005. The new Perion will be worth only about 40% of that. After the merger, Perion will leapfrog its much larger rivals: Babylon and AVG (AVG). Finally, Perion should be able to increase its operating margins as it can spread its SG&A costs over a much larger base (Conduit EBITDA margin is 32% vs. Perion’s 23%). Perion will keep its senior management team intact: Josef Mandelbaum will remain its CEO and Yacov Kaufman its CFO. Perion has successfully orchestrated a roll-up acquisitions of privately-held Sweetpacks and Smilebox, so I have high confidence that they know how to integrate a new business.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Invest In Right Now: GSE Systems, Inc.(GVP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Thursday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedbuying small cap performance improvement stock GSE Systems (NYSEMKT: GVP):

    GSE Systems is another somewhat-preemptive position; we think the recent support at the 100-day moving average line (gray) and subsequent string of higher lows is telling. There’s a ceiling at $3.27 that needs to be cleared, but we fear waiting on that to happen because once it does, GVP shares could be catapulted to a price we don’t want to chase.
