Black Friday is the best time of the year to make a great deal

Black Friday is the best time of the year to make a great deal. You can make a great deal on everything from toys to tech. It is also a great day for many to do most of the shopping on net instead of running around on the streets from shop to shop and waste a lot of time.

Thanksgiving is a big day and it has always been, but there are many good reasons to avoid the hectic crowds it draws. You should be prepared and make a checklist of stores and what you want to buy before Black Friday sets in.

Those who are smart will check out prices on the products they want to buy. They will do some research and compare prices with each other, and that will in return give them big savings.

Black Friday falls on Friday Nov 24 this year, and that is a day earlier than last year, which means you have one extra day to do your Christmas shopping if you have to. You can already now see some retailers leaking their ads for Black Friday.

We have seen what madness it is on this day. People are going crazy, and we already now know what will happen this year. Last year was a record year for e-commerce and there is no reason to belive it will slow any time soon.

44% of consumers were shopping online and it will continue. The online sales will continue to grow and the online deals will be bigger and better than ever before. And again; people will go crazy. This is madness.

Some retailers are already out with their ads and it is from now the show is beginning. Next week it will be even more ads and more great deals. This is funny and the trend will continue, so you better mark the day on your calendar as soon as possible.

Broadcom can be the third largest chipmaker in the world

Samsung and Intel are big chip makers, but Broadcom can start to join the club of the best chip makers and end up being the third largest chipmaker in the world. But firsts they need to do one thing: acquire Qualcomm.

Broadcom is planning to buy Qualcomm for about $103 billion if the deal succeeds, and that will be the largest acquisition in tech history. Qualcomm are best known for the default system on a chip called SoC and cellular modem vendor in most smartphones.

Qualcomm is famous for its near minopoly on the high-end smart phone SoC market with its «Snapdragon» line of chips.

Snapdragon semiconductors are embedded in devices of various systems, including Android and Windows Phone devices. They are also used for netbooks, in cars, wearable devices and other devices.

Snapdragon is a suite of system on a chip (SoC) semiconductor products designed and marketed by Qualcomm for mobile devices. The Snapdragon central processing unit (CPU) uses the ARM RISC instruction set, and a single SoC may include multiple CPU cores, a graphics processing unit (GPU), a wireless modem, and other software and hardware to support a smartphone`s global positioning system (GPS), camera, gesture recognition and video.

Samsung and Apple does not use Qualcomm`s operating system which means they are both competing with Qualcomm. Samsung have its own Exynos line system and Apple makes it sown SoC system for its iPhone and iPad.

But in the U.S, Samsung use Qualcomm chips only for this market and Apple has packaged a separate Qualcomm chip with the iPhone, but the company recently had the audacity to use an Intel modem in some iPhone models.

Broadcomm and Qualcomm combined will be big and that can make the prices go up. Google can do something with that. They want to improve its own Android, VR and AR and have sent a list of requests to other chip makers for future SoC designs. They also want to build its own processors.

According to Reuters, Broadcom Ltd made an unsolicited $103 billion bid for Qualcomm Inc on Monday.

Qualcomm`s share price skyrocketed before the dot-com-bubble. It reached nearly $90 but have never recovered. The stock has declined in two years from 2014 to 2016 and now it is trading at $62 on Monday.

It is another story for Broadcom. The stock has gone straight up since April 2016. On Monday, the stock reached an all-time high at $277.

The total value of publicly-traded securities that have switched from NYSE to Nasdaq is more than $1 trillion

Nasdaq is an American stock exchange and it is the second-largest exchange in the world by market capitalization, behind the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Nasdaq was founded in 1971 and when the Nasdaq Stock Market began trading, it was the world`s first electronic stock market.

NYSE, also nicknamed «The Big Board», is the world`s largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies at US $21,3 trillion as of June 2017. NYSE was founded 225 years ago, but they are losing to Nasdaq.

 

 

Don`t forget that both Nasdaq and NYSE are helping great companies do great things. They help companies raise capital that raises the world.

Many companies are switching from NYSE to Nasdaq, and more than 300 firms have jumped from NYSE to Nasdaq since 2005, which means that the total value of publicly-traded securities that have switched is more than $1 trillion.

Nasdaq is the home to the largest tech and biotech companies from Apple to Gilead Sciences. NYSE is the home for companies like Ford and Exxon but they also have some tech companies like Snap.

A company is listed on the stock exchange because of their need for money and hopefully growth, but a company will not be more valuable on Nasdaq vice vers NYSE for instance. So, why are they changing the stock exchange?

It can be many reasons. Kraft Foods had a cost-cutting reason. The tech-oriented roster at Nasdaq was the main draw for T-Mobile.

The increase in Nasdaq listings transfers including T-Mobile, CSX, Kraft Heinz, Marriott and many others is a signal of the growing momentum of publicly-traded sector leaders to the market.

Companies are also switching from Nasdaq to NYSE. More than $1 trillion in market cap is transferred from Nasdaq to NYSE since year 2000.

The tech-company Blackberry Ltd will transfer from Nasdaq to NYSE on October 16 this year. Marriott International Inc is the largest publicly traded hotel chain in the U.S, and they are moving to Nasdaq Stock market from the NYSE.

Google will launch its brand new phone Pixel 2 within a few weeks

It is a big day for Tim Cook and Apple today. The most expensive iPhone you`ve ever bought will be launched and that is happening ten years after its first release of their iPhone. That was then in 2007, but now it is 2017 and iPhone 8.

But Apple wont be long in heaven before I introduce another new phone on the market. Googles new release of their new phone called Google Pixel 2. Google Pixel and Pixel XL were both launched in October last year, so Pixel 2 will be launched next month, October 2017.

 

 

It isnt the most innovative product I have seen so far, but what I have seen is only leaked cases. The Pixel line is new and its building on the new defunct Nexus range. Apples new phone will be expensive, but you shouldnt expect Pixel 2 to be any cheaper than the old one.

The old one from Google started at about $650, so it was already expensive.

Rumors tells us that the new Google phone will be a curved screen with a 5,6 inch 18:9 display and a 2,560 x 1,312 resolution. With its use of AMOLED it will be very similar to Samsung Galaxy S8. Further more, it is rumored it will be a Snapdragon 835 chipset for all three Pixel 2 handsets.

The competition in the phone market increase and search giant not only face big competition from Apple but also from Xiaomi and Huawei. The last one remains Chinas top smart phone brand and Xiaomis sales are still climbing.

Xiaomi shipped 15 million phones during the quarter to rank fourth in China. That`s a 60% rise from Q1 2017. Huawei shipped 23 million ahead of brother-sister companies Oppo (21 million) and Vivo (16 million). Apple completed the top 5, having been leapfrogged by Xiaomi.

Xiaomi is the opposite of Apple with its price-conscious consumers. CEO Lei Jun hailed Xiaomi`s resurgence this year, calling it this most recent quarter «a major inflection point in our growth.»

«After two years of internal recalibration Xiaomi is once again embarking on a rapid growth trajectory,» Lei Jun told the press. He added that the company is aiming to reach 100 million phone sales in 2018.

Competition from Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi and Huawei are placing them all in the price-conscious to mid-range devices category. They are more likely to succeed in Asia than Google and Apple in the West.

Apple will launch its new iPhone on September 12 and it will be the most expensive phone you`ve ever bought

Apple is planning to launch its new iPhone 8 on September 12. It will be a big day for Apple but also for Apple fans around the world. The new phone will be the most expensive phone you`ve ever bought and the price will exceed all of its competitors.

You are also hereby warned about the wow effect you`ll get with a big visual overhaul of the new iPhone. The new iPhone will be coming in a new Blush Gold color and leaks have been hinting that the new phone will outperform the elegant designed Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

 

 

The name of the new phone is not known yet, but Apple may call it something like iPhone Pro or iPhone X to mark the 10th anniversary. You will be able to see the new 10th anniversary iPhone for the first time ever at the Steve Jobs Theater venue.

It`s amazing to see how the technology giant are doing it. Shares peaked at an all-time high followed by a strong earnings report the last month. Shares of the giant jumped over 10% in August and that is based on a strong fiscal third-quarter 2017 results.

Earnings per share rose 17,6% to $1,67, and their gross margin expanded 50 basis points to 38,5%. Apple`s revenue rose 7% YoY to quarterly revenue of $45,4 Billion. How is it possible?

Belive it or not, but it seems like people haven`t got enough of the giant and their revenue rose in all segments.

Iphone sales jumped 3% YoY to $24,8 Billion. iPad revenue increased by 2% to nearly $5 Billion. Services revenue rose 22% to $7,2 Billion and sales of other products like Apple TV, Watch, Beats and accessories rose 23% to $2,7 Billion. Cook also reported accelerating growth an all-time high quarterly record for Services revenue. Amazing.

Not only that. Apple provided guidance for fiscal fourth-quarter revenue to increase in the range between $49 Billion and $52 Billion. Apple is very excited about the advances in iOS, watchOS and tvOS coming this fall.

Apple`s most popular product line is still iPhone and their widely expected iPhone 8 smart phone will be launched on September 12, 2017.

During the last call, CEO Tim Cook said: “We`re looking very much forward to the product rollouts”.
