Investing Idea; Invest in Your Smartphone:
Stocks to Watch (BB), (005930.KS), (AAPL), (GOOG), (AMZN) Mobile
Point Roberts WA – March 28th, 2013 – (www.investorideas.com newswire, Investorideas.com staff: Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors reports on trading for smartphone stocks for March 28th, 2013. For investors seeking to invest in products and services they know and use daily, today’s snapshot gives insight into the smartphone sector.
The new smartphone industry has become one of the most competitive markets out there with three main companies struggling for control over this profit making market. Blackberry, which was once the leader in such an industry, now struggles to regain its foothold against Apple and Samsung as the companies all attempt to create the more innovative product to win over customers and investors.
Smartphone Stocks Trading and News Snapshot:
Research In Motion Limited (doing business as BlackBerry) (TSX:BB), one of the main competitors in the smartphone industry is trading up today at $15.12 gained $0.32 or 2.16% on a high volume of 7,010,080 shares after the company reported a surprise profit today as well as a comfortable cash pile for its fiscal fourth quarter, bolstered by the first sales of its new BlackBerry Z10 device.
Though trading on the Korean stock exchange, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (005930.KS) cannot be ignored when considering the smartphone market. Today Samsung was trading up at $1,510,000 showing a rise of $6,000 or 0.40% on a volume of 160,182 shares.
Apple Inc., (NASDAQ:AAPL) trading at $443.69 went down $-8.39 or -1.86% on a volume of 8,977,885 shares as frustrations among the developer community rise in regards to its management of its cloud-computing platform, iCloud. The third-party developers, who design apps to sell on Apple’s app store, are asserting that iCloud fails to “just work,” when it is the one Apple program that was designed to do just that.
Now, third party developers are running into problems with the system, since it is apparently not as easy to sync data into the cloud as former CEO Jobs implied.
Google Inc., (NASDAQ:GOOG), also continues to play a large role in the smartphone industry as most smartphones are powered by Google. It is trading down today at $794.42 lowering by $-8.24 or -1.03% on a volume of 1,127,164 shares.
Earlier this week Amazon.com Inc., (NASDAQ:AMZN), much like Google who is a competitor in more than sector, rumors grew that the company will release a smartphone in the second quarter of 2013. Although still unconfirmed at this point, given the growing body of evidence that Amazon is working on a phone, it seems likely that soon the online retailer will jump into the smartphone market.
Ultimately, an Amazon phone could shake up the phone market just as its Kindle Fire shook up the tablet space. If the phone is successful, it could have enormous repercussions for both Google and Apple.
Amazon.com Inc is traded down today at $264.99 dropping $-0.31 or -0.12% on a volume of 1,299,392 shares.
