Top Blue Chip Stocks To Buy Right Now

The U.S. economy is expected to strengthen next year, in part because of the government stimulus proposed at by President-elect Donald Trump, but job growth is likely to slow as the recovery approaches its eighth anniversary, according to a recent survey of economists.

The economy is projected to grow at a 2.3% annual rate in 2017, up from an estimated 1.6% this year, according to the average forecast of 53 economists surveyed earlier this month by Blue Chip Economic Indicators. That’s modestly above the tepid 2.1% average that has prevailed since the Great Recession ended in June 2009.

The big wild card: the Trump effect. Quick congressional passage and implementation of his plan to sharply increase infrastructure and defense spending and slash taxes could mean faster growth. But delays or a significant scale-down by lawmakers could leave the higher interest rates his blueprint already has triggered without the benefits. And Trump’s threats to slap big tariffs on China and Mexico risk trade wars that could further roil the economy.

    When Sony (NYSE:SNE) launched the PlayStation VR, or PSVR, in late 2016, the headset seemed to have a shot at bringing virtual reality to mainstream gamers.

    Prior to the launch of Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) PS4 and Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Xbox One in 2013, various reports suggested that both companies could add new DRM (digital rights management) features which would lock a single copy of a game to a single console or user. But Sony and Microsoft eventually abandoned those plans, probably to avoid an ugly PR backlash that would have throttled their console sales.
