Top Clean Energy Stocks To Buy Right Now

What happened

Shares of Internet of Things hardware specialist Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) traded higher on Friday, reaching a gain of 11.3% at 3:45 p.m. EST. The company didn’t have any news to report today, but investors appear to have decided that Thursday’s drastic price drop was too sharp after all.

So what

Sierra’s fourth-quarter report showed slowing top-line growth and lower earnings, inspiring a slew of immediate analyst downgrades and target price cuts. By the end of Thursday, the stock had taken a 27% haircut.

Again, the company didn’t have anything new to add to the discussion on Friday. It simply started drifting higher in the early morning, and the gains kept coming all day long. As we head into the weekend, Sierra Wireless has erased about half of Thursday’s huge price drop.

Top Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2021

Perhaps no entertainment medium is as universally beloved as video games. From the days of arcade cabinets to the console revolution and the advent of virtual-reality gaming, people around the world have always loved video games.

Today, the global gaming industry is adjusting to its latest trend: esports. Video games tend to be competitive by nature, but esports bring the intensity of this competition to the next level. And just like a traditional physical contest like a soccer game or boxing match, esports require high-level training, sportsmanship, and clutch performance.

Competitive gaming at a professional level is a relatively new concept, but money is already flowing into the industry at a rapid pace. Pro gamers are now facing off in international tournaments, racking up corporate sponsorships, and battling for multi-million dollar prizes.

But is this just another quirky trend, or should investors consider esports a legitimate growth industry? There are certainly plenty of publicly-traded video game companies, but will any of them feel the effects of esports? Is there any money to be made here? Let’s take a closer look.
