100 High Performance Small Cap Stocks

By Hank Tucker, Antoine Gara and Eliza Haverstock

Ask just about any investor from Silicon Valley to Wall Street and they will tell you: We’re living in the age of the mega-corporation. Trillion-dollar mega cap quasi-monopolies like Google, Apple and Amazon are pushing into everything from autonomous driving and entertainment to financial services and healthcare. And judging from their stock prices, the bigger these companies get, the more Wall Street applauds.

But being small, specialized and great—a hedgehog among foxes—is still a recipe for success, especially in a recovering economy.

Take Collectors Universe, a $700 million market capitalization company that grades collectibles like baseball cards, rare coins, stamps and autographs. It is the authenticator of millions of memorabilia items, like Mike Trout’s rookie card, Ted Williams’ autograph and 19th-century Morgan silver dollars. In the collectibles market, the Santa Ana, California-based

WisdomTree’s Unconventional Emerging Markets High Dividend Yielding ETF Play (NYSEARCA:DEM)

Brief Thesis

As global demographics start to lean towards more elderly populations, an increasing number of people are looking to shore up retirement obligations and finance life in their twilight years. While sovereign banks have attempted to maintain economies on life support through hyper excessive use of monetary policy, interest rates have been crushed, forcing income investors, many of whom are retirees, to find alternative revenue streams.

With this trend has come the advent of more versatile ETF offerings – some resolutely focused on dividend distributions and other hybrids looking to emulate the safety of bonds with the returns of equity. To that point, I recently redacted an article on Aptus Defined Risk ETF (DRSK) – not exactly a pure dividend play, but another which could fit in the family of income generating plays. It is worth checking out also.

While I remain mildly bullish on dividend-focused ETFs, it goes

high def thermal camera core

LEXINGTON, Mass. – The BAE Systems Sensor Solutions segment in Lexington, Mass., is introducing the Athena 1920 high-definition thermal camera core for long-range and demanding applications in security, surveillance, and targeting systems.

The Athena 1920 combines infrared image clarity with a wide field of view, and is compact, lightweight, and low-power.

Additional applications for this thermal camera core include aerial reconnaissance, perimeter security, and asset monitoring. “We put more pixels on the target, giving end users the situational awareness they need to make critical decisions,” says Robyn Decker, director of Lexington Business Center and Sensor Solutions at BAE Systems.

The Athena 1920 features a 1920-by-1200-pixel vanadium oxide (VOx) uncooled microbolometer pixel array using 12-micron pixel technology. The camera’s 60 Hz frame rate delivers clarity and minimizes motion blur in dynamic scenes.

The high-definition sensor offers nearly eight times the field of view of traditional camera cores, and with its 51-by-40-by-21-millimeter

Scientists discover new species of comb jellies with a high definition video

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) research team discovered a new species of ctenophores commonly called as comb jellies with a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), during an underwater expedition in Puerto Rico.

According to NOAA, this marked as the first-ever identification of a new species using only high-definition video in 2015. Duobrachium Sparksae, newly named, was located two-and-a-half miles below sea level and was acknowledged immediately as a new species.

Mike Ford and Allen Collins were the scientists who recognized the new ctenophore species, and their findings were recently issued in the journal Plankton and Benthos Research.

The study elaborates that the distinctive species has no obvious link within any existing genus or species and it is new to science. Though the video captured is the only evidence, it is described by its distinguishable features from all other known species of Ctenophora and is hypothesized to an origin of

Bitcoin Climbs to Record High

Bitcoin is back. Again.

Nearly three years after it went on a hair-bending rise and hit a peak of $19,783, the price of a single Bitcoin rose above that for the first time on Monday, according to the data and news provider CoinDesk. The cryptocurrency has soared since March, after sinking below $4,000 at the outset of the coronavirus pandemic.

Bitcoin’s latest climb is different from its last spike in 2017, which was driven largely by investors in Asia who had just learned about cryptocurrencies. Back then, the digital token soon lost momentum as people questioned what it could do other than allow for easy online speculating and drug and ransom payments.

While those questions remain, Bitcoin is now being fueled by a less speculative fever. Buyers — led by American investors, including companies and other traditional investors — are treating Bitcoin as an alternative asset, somewhat like gold, according

Up Over 120% in 2020, NVIDIA Stock Deserves Its High Price Tag

NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) CEO Jensen Huang said his company was “firing on all cylinders” during the three months ended Oct. 25. It’s easy to see why. Revenue and adjusted earnings per share exploded 57% and 63% higher year over year on gaming and data center strength, easily clearing the bar set a few months prior and setting new quarterly sales records.  

Semiconductor stocks are cyclical, and at some point the company’s recent momentum will take a breather. Thus, at nearly 20 times full-year expected sales, NVIDIA shares are expensive. But this latest upswing may just be getting started as a wave of new hardware upgrades and new tech innovation gets underway. This stock deserves its ultrapremium pricing.

Huang’s comment that NVIDIA is “firing on all cylinders” doesn’t tell the whole story. The gaming segment — graphics processing units (GPUs)

Exploring the evolution of high definition television viewing in Ghana

Viewing TV in high definition (HD) quality delivers a better experience with regards to colour quality; wide screen viewing; detail and clarity; surround sound; and the ability to allow a variety of input devices to work together without taking a lot of furniture space.

In 2019, IPSOS, a marketing research company conducted a study in Ghana and found out that almost 50% of TV homes in Ghana had at least one HD ready TV set.

The results of this survey point to the fact that consumers are investing in technology to enhance their viewing experience. This trend is putting a lot of pressure on broadcasters to deliver their content and service in high quality.

A cursory overview of Ghana’s broadcasting space indicates a checkered but study progress in offering the best of services to all.  

In 1935, when the British introduced the BBC relay station in Accra, Radio ZOY, many
