Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2018


Since Eric Reis first coined the term “Lean Startup” in 2008, businesses have followed a consistent trajectory: Get flat or go home. The over-structured bureaucracy so common in 20th-century corporations is anathema to startups today, and a company might seem downright puritanical if its CEO doesn’t stroll into work wearing a hoodie.

On the whole, I think this is a good thing. The world moves faster today than it ever has before, and companies need to be relentlessly adaptable to stay competitive in this business environment. Keeping a business alive is no longer about creating a product efficiently. It’s about anticipating, adapting to, and executing on a market that’s constantly in flux. Running a lean startup with a flat organizational model provides the agility that’s necessary for survival in today’s business world.


Unfortunately, though, it also comes with some drawbacks.

    Education market buyers, many of whom have embraced Alphabet Inc./Google’s (GOOGL) Chromebooks, appear to be fans of the new iPad: Apple’s iPad unit sales to the U.S. education market rose 32% to over 1 million. The company also reported seeing strong iPad demand from first-time Chinese and Japanese buyers, and noted Walmart Stores Inc.  (WMT) will be deploying more than 19,000 iPads for employee training. iPad average selling price (ASP) did drop by $54 annually to $436 due to a smaller mix of Pro sales, but given the unit growth, it’s hard for Apple to complain.

    First of all, when analyzing any investment, my first port of call is always to see if the stock has strong competitive advantages. Although, Amazon doesn’t pay a dividend, it definitely has huge assets within its arsenal that protect the stock from a huge sell-off to the downside. These advantages include but are not limited to the following.

    Competitive Advantage
    Why Is This Important

    Low Cost operations In terms of scale (Although Amazon has intentions ofopening up brick and mortar stores for groceries), fulfillment centers and online ordering (Amazon’s model) is generally accepted as a cheaper alternative to scaling brick & mortar stores. The “fitting out” of a fulfillment center costs much less than a Super-center from Walmart (NYSE:WMT)for example. This enables Amazon scale its operations at a much faster rate than its competitors.
    Network Effect The low prices translate into a network effect which attracts buyers, third party sellers and large merchants on mass. The synergy between these three different groups of people results in a huge array of products being available on the platform for sale. Investors should note that all groups are increasing meaningfully in numbers at present. Third party sellers are a huge cash cow for Amazon due to the margins involved. This “network effect” will only intensify in years to come.
    Amazon Prime Amazon’s premium service is another huge competitive advantage the company has. Why? Because Amazon is constantly adding more value to the service by adding more products (either at a discounted price or completely free). Jeff Bezos’s vision here is to add massive value here in order to up-sell normal Amazon users into Prime. Again growth rates are re-accelerating with Prime having just launched in China recently.
    Amazon Web Services Amazon has the biggest cloud computing service in the world by far and the margins in this segment are really impressive. In fact, AWS makes up
