Under the guidance of President Donald Trump, the U.S. economy has improved slowly but surely. And for years, the technology industry has soared in the stock market. Money experts say now is a great time to invest in this growing field, and other emerging markets. A smart investment today could lead to financial flexibility and/or a comfortable retirement. Here’s a look at some of the best companies to invest in:
With more than 2 billion active users, Facebook’s stock is rock solid. More astounding than that 2 billion figure is the fact that Facebook’s usership grew by nearly 20% last year alone. Mark Zuckerberg and company are making smart decisions lately by investing in themselves. Its recent safety updates and partnerships across booming industries like sports and gaming make Facebook a force to reckoned with for the foreseeable future.
Amazon is everywhere you look, even when you don’t realize it. Whole Foods and the video game streaming site Twitch highlight some of Amazon’s recent high-priced acquisitions. After raking in billions in 2016, the company expects record profits this year. If you’re skeptical about how big Amazon really is, the company’s owner Jeff Bezos is currently the second richest person in the entire world. Is that enough proof?
The reason why this massive coffee chain is such a good stock to invest in is because it is currently hurting. Over the past year, Starbucks’ stock declined 2.6%. The good news is experts predict a giant rise in the company’s value soon. Starbucks is expected to increase by 16% over the next five years. The nearly 25,000 worldwide locations would suggest Starbucks is here to stay.
Take-Two is one of the hottest names in the growing gaming industry. The developer pulled in more than a billion dollars last year alone. As eSports continue to gain popularity, the revenues will only increase. Take-Two is projected to grow 20% in 2018.
