Cybersecurity Stocks Just Got Another Huge Buy Signal

cybersecurity stocks

U.S. President Barack Obama doubled-down on his fight against cyberterrorism last week - which means he also delivered 2015's second major "buy" signal for cybersecurity stocks.

The first signal was in early February. That's when President Obama requested $14 billion in his 2016 fiscal-year budget for increased cyber defense. Roughly $5.5 billion of that is requested just for the Pentagon.

"In recent breaches, more than 100 million Americans had their personal data compromised, including, in some cases, credit card information," President Obama said.

That's why cybersecurity stocks are on our list of the most profitable opportunities for investors...

But at this point some investors may be wondering if it's too late to jump on the Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) bandwagon.After all, AAPL stock gained more than 62% in 2014 and another 16% in the first six weeks of 2015.

Tim Cook: If "Sitting Is the New Cancer," the Apple Watch Is the Cure

Apple stock

Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) CEO Tim Cook played diagnostician Feb. 10 at the 2015 Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference in San Francisco.

He voiced doctors' concerns that the average person lives too sedentary a lifestyle nowadays. That's why he is so amped about the soon-to-be-released Apple Watch (set for debut sometime early this year). "I use Apple Watch constantly in the gym to track my exercise. If I sit for too long, it will actually tap me on the wrist to remind me to get up and remove, because a lot of doctors think sitting is the new cancer."

The Apple Watch proves Cook has picked up on one of the most profitable trends in 2015: wearable tech.

We'll show you exactly why this soon-to-be $19 billion market is a great opportunity for AAPL stock - and how investors can ride 2015's wearable tech craze to their advantage...

Money Morning's can't-miss buy opportunity this week is tech giant Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT).

Our buy opportunities have been beaten down - but they're actually a great value.

A less-than-stellar earnings report earlier this week sent investors fleeing from Microsoft stock. Concerns that PC sales and a strong U.S. dollar would continue to drag on MSFT stock through 2015 triggered several analyst downgrades.
