5 high-yield, high-tech stocks for 2015

In 2014, the tech sector has once again proven that it’s one of the biggest drivers of returns for investors.
As proof, consider the iShares Dow Jones U.S. Technology

ETF IYW, or the Technology Select Sector SPDR XLK, , both up over 12% year-to-date vs. about 7% gains for the broader S&P 500 index SPX.

As we enter 2015, however, there are concerns that high-earnings multiples and continued softness in global IT spending — particularly in Europe — could weigh on the sector.

That presents an interesting challenge for investors. How can you tap into tech, but with limited risk? More



Economy on track for best growth in nine years
Global growth is sputtering again. Most Americans remain pessimistic five years after the end of the Great Recession. And the deadly Ebola virus is adding fresh uncertainty.

Yet the U.S. economy continues to chug along and it could soon register its longest and strongest period of expansion in nine years.

On Thursday, the government is likely to report the U.S. grew 3% in the third quarter, right on the heels of 4.6% growth rate in the spring. What’s more, economists polled by MarketWatch predict the nation will also grow at least 3% in the final three months of 2014. More



Fed's Evans: Stronger dollar is a headwind
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)—A stronger U.S. dollar is an obstacle to the Federal Reserve’s ability to meet its inflation mandate and will impede growth, Charles Evans, the president of the Chicago Fed, said on Saturday.

“It’s a headwind,” Evans told reporters after giving a speech on the sidelines of the International Monetary Fund’s annual meeting.

“[A] Higher dollar is going to have an effect on our net exports, it is going to reduce it a bit. And it is also going to lead to lower import prices and likely have an effect that our inflation data will be lower,” Evans said.

Earlier, in his speech, Evans said there is “more uncertainty” in the global economic outlook than the Fed had expected. More



Gold crashes and is now tarnished for good
Gold shined brightly at the beginning of 2014, with bullion prices jumping by about 13% from New Year’s Day until mid-March. But since spring, and particularly since July, gold prices have been on the decline. Last week, the precious metal settled near lows not seen since Christmas 2013.

So should investors consider this sell-off as an opportunity to buy precious metals on the cheap? Or is gold really tarnished for some time to come? Sadly for gold bugs, it’s the latter.

There’s always a big argument for gold as the only alternative amid overpriced stocks, a weak U.S. recovery and a fragile dollar that will collapse at any time. If you want to make those arguments in the face of the facts, feel free to scroll down to the comments section and make fun of my receding hairline.

5 healthy fast-food failures
Burger King drops “Satisfries,” adding to list of fast-food low-cal flops
Fast-food restaurants’ healthier offerings don’t do much for Americans’ bottoms or the chains’ bottom lines. After all, experts say, customers generally don’t show up for the supersized salads. Burger King hoped to change that with its new "Satisfries," but announced on Wednesday that its menu will be a little lighter from now on: Satisfries are getting the chop.

Introduced last September, Burger King's Satisfries were an attempt to appeal to people who were worried about calories, and Burger King claimed they had 30% fewer calories and 40% less fat than McDonald's french fries. But history shows such efforts—even when relatively successful—do more to improve the brand’s image than its revenues, analysts say. And sometimes, healthy menu items are left on the shelf. More
