    Social platforms have come to serve as both combat zones and weapons, arenas for verbal sparring, secret leaking and election influencing. If social media become official weaponry, Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR), Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB) or Snap Inc (NYSE: SNAP) may soon become line items on U.S. defense budgets.

    Or the Twitter Inc. (Nasdaq: TWTR) IPO, where the stock climbed 65.66%, to $69, before losing 68.33% of its share value.

    And then there was the Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) IPO, which opened at $24.48 but has since fallen 45.67% to $13.30, where it currently trades. Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald called the Snap IPO the most dangerous IPO he’s ever seen.

  • [By Andrew Tonner]

    IPOs like Snap are a rare breed. In looking for companies comparable to it, I looked for listings that sported a post-IPO valuation above $5 billion, went pubic after 2010, and employ a consumer-facing business model. This resulted in an admittedly small sample of highly hyped tech IPOs including Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN), and Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA). For transparency’s sake, I opted to not include Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba in this list because its geographic focus and scale made it fundamentally different than the above tech IPOs, although including it wouldn’t have changed the outcome of this analysis.

Top Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018: Applied Micro Circuits Corporation(AMCC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Piyush Arora]

    AMD, along with other server-grade chip manufacturers such as Qualcomm (NSDQ:QCOM), Cavium (NSDQ:CAVM) and AMCC (NSDQ:AMCC), operates in the remaining minuscule 0.8% of the market. So, each of the aforementioned companies operate with a practically non-existent market share, compared to Intels shipments of course. This also means that these firms (AMD, Qualcomm etc.) have plenty of room to grow. This would be subject to good product releases of course, but at least this way, the law of large numbers isnt working against them.

Top Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018: Veeco Instruments Inc.(VECO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.GURUFOCUS.COM]

    VECO (NASDAQ:VECO) contributed 1.16% to the Fund’s quarterly return, nearly equaling AAN’s contribution in the quarter. VECO appreciated over 48% in the quarter due to an acceleration of orders for its key MOCVD tools. These tools are the main manufacturing equipment used to produce LEDs, whether they are for display screens or, increasingly, for lighting products. We estimate that VECO currently has roughly 80% global market share for MOCVD tools used to make LEDs.
