Cisco Systems Inc. reports that the "Internet of Things" market will generate up to $14 trillion in profits over the next few years. That's an incredible rate of growth.

Since reaching an all-time high of 18,351.36 on May 19, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has dropped 10.2%. That puts us in stock market correction territory.
But tech stocks are actually outperforming. The Nasdaq Composite is still up 1.3% on the year, despite slipping 7.9% since hitting a high in July.
Our 2015 top stock picks list still features Ambarella Inc. (Nasdaq: AMBA) stock.
This is despite a week of panicked selling that, when all was said and done, sent the stock down more than 25%.
Last week I wrote about my foray into online dating.
But my "hot date" ended up being lukewarm. That's okay - the great thing about online dating is that it is easy to meet other people.
In fact, this reminded me of my days in the trading pits: If a promising opportunity didn't work out as hoped, you took the loss quickly and moved on - knowing there were lots of other opportunities out there.
In a world where folks are busier than ever, that ability to find new opportunities - to easily meet new people - is the big attraction to online dating. That's why it has become a $2 billion business.
Finding the right tech stocks to buy to play the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) market can deliver serious profits for investors.
Just look at Pace Plc. (OTCMKTS: PCMXF). The set-top box maker soared 33% on April 24 when it was acquired by Arris Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ARRS) for $2.1 billion.
More than $811 billion was spent on M&A deals globally in the first quarter of 2015, according to Reuters.
Five of the United States' top tech companies have more than $430 billion in cash combined, according to a new report from Moody's Investors Service.
That's enough to pay every single U.S. citizen roughly $1,347.
When Money Morning's Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald first recommended one of his top stock picks in October, he set a growth estimate of 1,358%.
But he's making a correction. That initial estimate was just too low.
Fitz-Gerald now sees this stock climbing 1,417%. The tech stock opened today at just $1.44 per share. But by 2020, Fitz-Gerald sees it climbing to $21.85 per share.
According to a Bloomberg report, the Alibaba IPO price could be 22% lower than most analyst valuations when the company goes public later this year - but the reason is actually good for investors.
A discount would not signify weakness in the IPO – rather, it would be Alibaba’s attempt to avoid a flop like the one Facebook experienced during its initial public offering, when it ended up losing half its market value in four months as investors worried about slowing growth.
Now that Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) stock has split 7-to-1, knocking the Apple stock price down to a psychologically more appealing number below $100, many investors are trying to figure out if it's a buy.
Money Morning Defense & Tech Specialist Michael A. Robinson has no doubts. In fact, he says he's buying more.
In this video, Michael explains what the tech giant is up to now that has him so enthusiastic about Apple stock.
Sure, Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) didn't introduce a new product at the World Wide Developers Conference last week.
But the tech giant did something much more important than just roll out some new "gadget." Apple unveiled a strategy that puts the company into two new businesses and positions it for years of potential new growth.
There's nothing we like better than discovering a "back" way into the current hot deal.
It's just so gratifying to find that sorta-secret way to bag profits from the IPO or merger that's dominating the headlines and that everyone you work with is so excited to talk about.
We did that for you with the Alibaba Holdings Inc. initial public stock offering (IPO). In our special research report, How to Make a Fast 153% from the Alibaba IPO, we give you three "backdoor" ways to profit from the upcoming stock offering of the China Internet giant.
Today we're coming back with a different "backdoor-profit-play" strategy.
This strategy offers an alternate way to profit from the already-announced $67.1 billion bid that AT&T Inc. has made for DirecTV.
It's also a way to profit from the surprisingly strong tech sector that's emerging right next door... Full Story
The year is nearly half over, and the mainstream media continues to obsess over a whipsaw stock market that's been cutting highflyers down to size.
The sullen outlook has lots of retail investors dumping tech stocks and running for the "safety" of the sidelines. That's a mistake no one should be making.
But tech stocks - and especially biotech stocks - are poised to do very well in the last half of 2014.
An endless stream of impenetrable reports comes from the bankers in New York and our elected leaders in Washington, but most Main Street investors lack the knowledge to “decode” these reports, so they can’t respond in a constructive manner.
But I’ve identified the three specific economic reports that matter – and have deciphered what they mean.
As a tech analyst, I spent my early years in Detroit, and I know a lot about the Rust Belt.
In fact, when I moved to the West Coast in the mid-1980s, I drove a Honda that had already started rusting. Every once in a while, some wag would come up and ask if I was from the Midwest.
No doubt, rust like that was obvious. But in my more than three decades of working with Silicon Valley companies, I've found high-tech "rust" may be a lot less obvious and much more insidious.
The good news is that while this "rust" often takes down companies, it happens to be setting up three cash-generating firms that are handing us a big opportunity now... Full Story
