    Our biggest loser was back in January when we closed out of small communications equipment firm Aerohive Networks (Nasdaq: HIVE). On January 17, the company made a statement about its upcoming fourth-quarter earnings release, warning that revenue would likely be near the lower end of its guidance range. Investors didn’t take kindly to the news and sent shares tumbling by roughly 30%… well below our 15% trailing stop-loss. We ended up closing out with a 35% loss on the trade.

Top Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

By Oisin Breen, Research

In line with previous articles we’ve written, and paraphrasing Buffett, it’s always interesting to consider investing behind the things you know. This article, motivated by a curiosity into firms supporting the deep-sea cable infrastructure that drives the internet, focuses on technological infrastructure firm TE Connectivity (TEL) that does just that, and a whole lot more. TE is a components manufacturer operating in a range of industries. 2017 has been a good year for the firm, and as investors continue to seek both value and growth in the market, unheralded infrastructure stocks available cheaply, relative to earnings, may continue to see their share prices climb in 2018.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

The optical networking sector has fallen on hard times lately. Many stocks in this category skyrocketed in 2016 and early 2017, only to come crashing back down.

There is no doubt in my mind that high-speed network equipment and components will be in high demand for many years to come. That’s why I’m salivating over the rock-bottom prices that some of the best names in the industry are trading for right now. So let’s have a closer look at Finisar (NASDAQ:FNSR), Applied Optoelectronics Inc. (NASDAQ:AAOI), and NeoPhotonics (NYSE:NPTN), all of which have seen share prices sliding at least 20% lower over the last 52 weeks. These are great companies in a high-growth industry with legs that are good for miles and miles, and should be snapped up at these ridiculously low prices.
