Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

When most investors think of anti-terrorism stocks, AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ:AVAV) and American Science & Engineering, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASEI) come to mind. American Science & Engineering makes x-ray equipment that can examine huge cargo vehicles like tractor trailers and trains. AeroVironment makes unmanned aerial drones that can not only monitor activity on the ground, but delivery an explosive payload as needed. Sometimes though (and arguably a lot of the time) the war on terrorism is fought literally and figuratively with boots on the ground, targeting that “lone wolf” with a knife or a handgun that isn’t identified until it’s too late. That’s where Patriot One Technologies Inc. (CVE:PAT, OTCMKTS:PTOTF) moves onto the radar.

It’s not a household name – yet – because it’s technology is not yet commercialized. That’s going to change this year though. After five years of R&D work on the utilization of new microwave technologies, nForce CMR1000 has begun field testing in Orlando (announced Jan. 17th); additional pilot sites are expected to be announced soon.

The CMR1000 (‘CMR’ is an short for Cognitive Microwave Radar) is an amazing device. It works not unlike a X-ray machine at an airport, but also not unlike a more conventional metal detector you might find at an airport or at the entryway to a building. In all regards though, it’s better than both. By using high-frequency microwaves that are harmless to humans, the CMR1000 can even pinpoint exactly what kind of metallic weapon it is… a semi-automatic pistol versus a revolver, or a machete versus a pocket knife.

    In the human-resources business for more than 30 years, Insperity (NYSE: NSP) is profitable and growing. It has benefitted from seeing the need for outsourcing the human resources function early and executing consistently.

Further, Insperity offers data analytics and it also plans to continue marketing predictive data analytics to its clients.

Q4FY18 revenues came in at  Rs 323.6 crore, up 12.2% YoY and better than our expectations of  Rs 315.9 crore on account of strong ATP growth of 10.9% YoY, which more than compensated for 2.8% YoY decline in footfalls (Padmavat did not release in four states, where Inox has ~20-22% of their total screens).

Ad revenues came in at  Rs 33.2 crore, up 58.9% YoY (our estimate: 47.4% YoY growth) EBITDA came in at  Rs 43.9 crore vs. estimate of  Rs 42 crore owing to strong operating leverage.

  • [By ]

    In the human-resources business for more than 30 years, Insperity (NYSE: NSP) is profitable and growing. It has benefitted from seeing the need for outsourcing the human resources function early and executing consistently. Employing a software-with-a-service (SwaS) model, Insperity acts almost as a consultant: SwaS companies don’t just “rent” software (like software-as-a-service companies do) but rather rent software together with embedded support service. SwaS companies can observe their clients and see when and where they’re having issues — and then proactively helping them solve these issues. Further, Insperity offers data analytics and it also plans to continue marketing predictive data analytics to its clients.
