Hot Stocks

Hot stocks are shares of companies that are in great demand by investors. A hot stock is a result of a development that will potentially greatly boost the fortunes of the company. This can be a new product, a corporate alliance or sales and profit results that greatly exceeded investors' expectations. Share prices of stocks that are hot tend to appreciate significantly within a short period. As long as the news from the corporation remains positive and continues to beat investors' estimates of profit and revenue, the share price will increase.

To maximize returns from hot stocks, the astute investor will get in before the rest of the investment crowd. The trick is to finding the hidden gem is locking in on a company that is posting strong results but has not yet been recognized by investors. Sooner or later, the investment crowd will notice the company's strong operating results. As a result, the company's share price will be driven up.

E-Trade buying Harrisdirect for $700M

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- E-Trade Financial Corp. shares rallied Monday after the company said it would buy brokerage Harrisdirect from BMO Financial Group for $700 million cash.

The move marks the latest in a consolidation among brokerage firms that saw Ameritrade set plans to buy TD Waterhouse in June.

"E-Trade is reacting to [its] failed bid for Ameritrade by acquiring an alternative target," Fox-Pitt Kelton analyst David Trone said in a note to clients Monday.

Trone said mergers in the industry may not be over, and suggested that Ameritrade may one day attempt to take over E-Trade.

Meanwhile, the Harrisdirect purchase gives E-Trade "some time to at least bulk up, and hopefully gain an equitable multiple in order to fend off any hostile, or quasi-hostile action," Trone said.

Upon the deal's closing, Harrisdirect will pay $50 million more to BMO Financial Group, resulting in total proceeds of $750 million for the Canadian seller, which expects a "modest" gain on the sale.
