New technology’s user base growing at 5X the speed of the internet in the 1990s. Could dwarf dot-com boom.
Earnings season continues to wind down this week with about 97% of the S&P 500 companies having already reported results. First-quarter earnings are on pace to rise by 50% from a year ago, the quickest pace since 2010. The fast rising Q1 earnings are a reflection of broad economic strength.
One of the key takeaways from this earnings season is that demand is snapping back at a rapid pace. And as vaccinations rise, infections decline and restrictions are lifted, increased spending seems probable. As last week’s income and spending data confirmed, consumers continue to have a significant amount of excess savings on hand that they could deploy as normal activities begin to resume.
Today’s stock hotlist features three tickers we think are worth watching closely this week. Including one interesting way to get some skin in on global firms that stand to benefit as global economies regain strength.

Report: 3 Small-cap Tickers to Buy Now
Following a tumultuous and turbulent year in 2020, the US economy appears to be on track for a strong turnaround in 2021. Many investors are once again willing to take bets on small-cap stocks during the early stages of economic growth cycles.
