tech stocks

Automakers are still largely reinventing the wheel when it comes to adding today's most advanced technologies to new vehicles.

Those carmakers sold a record 17.5 million vehicles last year. But their success could be in jeopardy if they drop the ball on the operating system they adopt.

Luckily, two iconic tech stocks are riding to their rescue...

technology-board1

The semiconductor stocks forecast for 2016 is going to sound familiar to anyone who follows the industry closely.

The wave of mergers and acquisitions will continue, as will the sales struggles of last year - at least early on. But as 2016 goes on, we will see the start of a turnaround for the sector as trends like automotive tech and the Internet of Things spur new growth.

Here are the top semiconductor stocks to watch in 2016...

During times like these, your first reaction may be to sell everything. However, the last thing you should do now is let your emotions take over, join the panicky crowd, and dump your stocks.

tech stocks

There’s never a better time or place to look for tech stocks with potential than the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

The problem for investors is how to sort through the 3,600 exhibitors to find the best tech stocks to buy. Fortunately, Money Morning kept a close eye on what came out of CES 2016.

And we've identified five tech stocks we think have the best chance to deliver outsized returns...

An Open Letter to IBM CEO Virginia Rometty

1 11 16 STI-1

Whenever a CEO takes the stage at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, we investors expect them to reveal something meaningful... innovative... in a word - big.

But after IBM Corp. CEO Virginia Rometty's keynote speech, I was left unimpressed - and so was Wall Street. Last week, shares of IBM fell to five-year lows, off nearly 19% over last six months.

This sudden drop is only the latest bad news for the once-mighty IBM. And it's just one reason why I've penned a letter to Rometty and offered her a custom-made action plan.

If she listens, my plan will rescue IBM by making it the undisputed leader in one of the fastest-growing sectors of the market.

Four Tech Stocks to Avoid in 2016

tech stocks

There's a lot more to making money in tech stocks than choosing the right investments. You also have to know which stocks to avoid. After all, no one wants to lose money chasing after overhyped stocks.

If current trends continue, expect to see a lot of hype from Wall Street about great "turnaround" investments. Today I want to peer inside several turnaround prospects the Street is likely to peddle in the coming months.

On paper at least, they appear to be good candidates to come back from recent sell-offs. But they're not...

tech sector

The "New Internet Economy" is a market sector worth a combined $2.6 trillion, with major trends driving a select group of five big-cap leaders to new heights.

Each of these all-stars commands a growing slice of e-commerce, mobile transactions, and cloud computing, and all are poised to hand tech investors steady gains, starting in January.

So let's drill down and take a look at these other stocks to buy - and why you must have them in your portfolio...

Why You Still Shouldn't Buy GoPro Stock

GoPro stock prediction

Last Thursday, GoPro stock jumped 11.49% in a single session on rumors that Apple may buy the beleaguered tech darling, leading millions of investors to wonder if they should jump on the bandwagon, too.

In a word - nope. GoPro stock remains a risk you don't want or need in your portfolio ahead of a rate hike.

Here's what you want to buy instead...

This Tech Stock Connects 25 Million Cars – and Beats the Market by 79%

tech stock

Technology is playing a major role in the recent auto sales boom, with millions of consumers citing advanced auto technologies as a key reason they're buying or leasing now.

And there's a small, little-known tech stock set to double within five years on the back of this massive trend.

Its technology is already in 25 million vehicles on the road today, and that number's only going to soar higher. Here's why...

Retail Stocks Are Dead – Here's What to Buy Instead

retail stocks

Millions of investors believe they need to invest in retail stocks because they're a mirror for the consumer-driven economy we live in. Thatusedto be true, but no more.

One sector has completely derailed the premise. This shift could be like backing Wal-Mart before it roared to 600% gains.

Here's what you need to know...

The Only Two Stocks You Need This Shopping Season

Christmas gift

The stock market is diverging, split between the top-tier "Haves" and the struggling, shrinking "Have Nots."

This shift means big profits for investors looking at the companies I'm about to talk about.

But it also means classic retail stocks are facing nearly insurmountable headwinds this year. And it would be a (costly) mistake to expect much good news for them in the upcoming 2015 holiday shopping season.

Cash In on Chinese Tech Stocks with One Easy Move

china-card-chip

Chinese tech stocks are out of favor on Wall Street, but the Street's worries about China's slowing growth are greatly exaggerated.

Just look how busy shoppers are there. China's National Bureau of Statistics said retail sales rose 11% last month. Not only did that beat forecasts, but it also stands as this year's single strongest monthly increase.

This helps explain why China's e-commerce sector is doing so well. And there's an easy way to play this entire red-hot sector. Check it out...

How to Get Triple-Digit Tech Gains from This… Coffee Company?

tech stock

Investors normally don't consider coffee a sexy investment - and they usually don't envision it in their tech portfolios.

But that's a mistake. I'm going to show you a coffee company that's leveraging some of the hottest, most lucrative segments in tech - mobile apps and commerce - that will crush not only the competition, but other retailers as well.

It's going to continue to do that on its way to doubling and beyond. Here's how...

Ekso Bionics – 33 Million Strides Taken to Corner a $2.1 Billion Market

ekso

No company captures the imagination the way Ekso Bionics Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: EKSO) does.

The tiny exoskeleton maker just reported earnings and, as you might expect, there's broad-based growth in every metric that matters.

But there's something the media isn't covering.

Ironically, it's the single most important factor in what I believe will ultimately be an exceptionally bright future for the company and savvy investors alike.

Here's why there's more upside for Ekso than any analyst will tell you.

Tech Stocks Poised to Rise on This Economic News

tech stocks

As we've talked about in several recent conversations, I live by the credo "always have some money invested in tech stocks" - no matter how much "noise" you hear out of Wall Street and Washington.

Otherwise, you'll miss opportunities to buy winning stocks when they are "on sale." Worse, you'll miss taking a big profit from the rebound.

Here's a breakdown of brand-new market data proving this - and why you should be bullish about tech investing for the rest of 2015...
