Apple AirPods wireless earphones sales expected to double in 2019

It sure doesn't hurt when your two biggest potential competitors miss the deadlines for holiday sales. Microsoft (MSFT) has delayed the launch of its Surface Earbuds to the spring of 2020, missing the 2019 holiday shopping season. Google (aka Alphabet) has been working to upgrade its wireless earbuds and that product too will miss the […]

Tech stocks acting like they’re good to rally to the end of the year

I'm using my Volatility Portfolio pick Cirrus Logic (CRUS) as an indicator of the trend in technology stocks--particularly chip stocks--through the end of 2019. And right now that indicator is pointing up. On November 1, the company's shares jumped to $72.43 from $58.49 on way better than expected earnings. That was a 23.8% move to […]

And today U.S. stocks took a very minor rest with the Standard & Poor's 500 actually falling 0.12% and the NASDAQ Composite essentially flat with a gain of 0.02%. But I think the trend is still definitely upward from here through year end--assuming that the U.S. […]

The latest figures on Yahoo Finance show that 19.55% of the ETF's assets are invested in shares of Microsoft (MSFT.) Another 17.52% […]
