M&A (merger and acquisition)

As I wrote about earlier, you must look for small cap stocks in the Russell 2000 now. It is risky, but high risk means high gain, and you have to spend money you can afford to lose. So why small cap stocks?

You see, America is for sale and that is for the highest bidder. What I am talking about is really good companies out there. The companies that no one is talking about. The cheap one. The innovative one.

There is a lot of money out there waiting for good investments. Many of the great companies are searching for the right small cap stocks. Why? They simply want to thrive by purchasing growth.

Take a look at Google. For example, they expanded and bought Youtube.com. Everyone is afraid of Google. They are a great example of a model for what a media company needs to be in order to be competitive in the future.

Cisco was smart enough to buy companies with great talents instead of developing them themselves. Cisco have done this over 140 times since 1993. They are infusing new ideas and new ways of thinking by doing it like this. It makes them strong and competitive. Google seems to do exactly the same thing and that makes them stay ahead of a rapidly changing competitive landscape on internet.

The really biggest day in e-commerce in history is Cyber Monday. $10 billion was spent from about 70 million online shoppers. That`s an increase of 18%. 30% of the purchases came from a mobile device. 80% of those came from an Iphone or iPad. unbelievable!

And here is the catch: Social sites generated only around 1% of the e-commerce sales on that day. An increase of only 2%. So, E-commerce is the real big thing. It`s business. 17% of the sales came from Email. That`s pretty nice.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest are popular sites and people still think that social media is a marketing must. The numbers are falling and the money is not in here. Social media is better for branding, networking and community building, but direct sales is better other ways than social media. Will we see any M&A in this sector in 2014? Are those big ones looking for small caps?

This is a tremendous investment opportunity and you as an aggressive investor need to play on it. But how? I expect next year to be a takeover boom! You have probably seen it before and know that nothing jolts a stock higher than an unsolicited takeover offer. The stock prices skyrocket on rumors like that.

Who say no to a single-day return of 50% or more? I have many new and exciting companies on the radar, but I can`t tell you what stocks it is. It is a lot of research behind the work of finding the best stocks, so this is what I get paid for.

But I can tell what sectors you should look for. It is technology and healthcare. I expect a lot of action in those sectors next year. I really look forward to 2014. It`s gonna be a funny year. So, I am still bullish!
