Top High Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

It’s that time of the year. Tech giant Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is scheduled for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next week. As usual, Apple will kick off the week with a keynote, featuring the company’s latest software and possibly some new products.

Last year, Apple’s WWDC was jam-packed with announcements, including software updates, a sneak peak of the all-new iMac Pro, the introduction of the HomePod, a redesigned App Store, a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and more. But what’s in store for WWDC this year?

Here’s what to look for on Monday.

Software

Since the main focus of WWDC is software, investors can expect previews of new versions of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who is generally very reliable when it comes to Apple rumors, says some of the software features beyond Apple’s usual operating system updates may include digital health tools designed to help users keep track of the time they spend using their smartphones and apps; an updated augmented reality (AR) development platform, presumably called ARKit 2; and improved features for snoozing notifications.

    Box was an early mover in the content and file management space in enterprise markets. In its annual report, the company highlights Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft,  Dropbox, and Canadian software giant Open Text Corporation (Nasdaq: OTEX) as competitors. Those may seem like daunting foes, but Box’s cloud-neutral platform (unlike Alphabet and Microsoft) has allowed it to succeed, and it also has an edge in the high-touch enterprise over the more consumer and SMB-focused Dropbox. These factors, combined with excellent execution, has allowed Box to win nearly 70% of the Fortune 500 as customers, and generate very low churn of only around 4%, showing the “stickiness” of Box’s software.

Following years of lobbying, gaming companies finally received approval for sports betting from the U.S. Supreme Court. The nine justices recently ruled the decades-long federal ban on sports betting violates the constitution.

The Supreme Court said that in the absence of specific regulations enacted by Congress, states can allow sports betting. With more than 30 states about to enact regulations that would allow sports betting within their borders, sports betting is an industry on the rise.

Sports betting will be as much as about the technology used as it is about online betting.

International Game Technology provides technology that makes gaming easy and fun. International Game Technology is among the world&a;rsquo;s largest manufacturers of slot machines. International Game Technology&a;rsquo;s existing relationships with casinos should provide it entry into the sports betting market. In the meantime, International Game Technology spends heavily on gaming R&a;amp;D, which should enable it to develop sports betting products. Analysts at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch think International Game Technology could capture &a;ldquo;$50-$200&a;rdquo;million of EBITDA annually through legalized sports betting.

Just this morning Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), as well as other large banks, are out with key earnings reports. This matters for the 2017 call and it matters for the share price which has skyrocketed in the last few months. It’s about the performance.

The bank has come a long way from it facing extinction, and it took we the people to keep it alive.

No, unfortunately it is not, but it is getting there. Can you stick with the name? We need to examine the company’s most recent earnings and key metrics to make that determination.
