Two kinds of companies dominate the Nasdaq Stock Market, small ones and giant technology firms

Two kinds of companies dominate the Nasdaq Stock Market, small ones and giant technology firms.

Both groups interest me. That’s why each year I write a column about my favorite Nasdaq stocks.

My Nasdaq recommendations have done pretty well over the years. In twelve columns beginning in 2001, my picks have returned 15.1% on average. That compares with 14.3% for the Nasdaq Composite Index and 11.0% for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index.

Research and development costs for diversification will continue to rise

Google parent Alphabet Inc. (GOOG)(GOOGL) recently posted its fourth-quarter financial results. Although the company continues to enjoy spectacular growth in its search engine business, dramatically higher costs dragged down margins and free cash flow.

See the investment prospects of Alphabet examined in detail

Investors who purchase growth stocks do so for the potential for significant returns. These stocks often don’t pay a dividend, as the companies usually reinvest profits back into their business. This helps the companies continue to expand.

The firm says an economic recession will arrive in 2020, so it is time to increase holdings of high-quality stocks

CNBC reported Monday that Goldman Sachs analyst David Kostin has recommended investors increase their portfolio defensiveness through investments in high-quality stocks, as many clients of the American bank are fearing that a U.S. economic recession will arrive in 2020.

Therefore, Goldman Sachs suggested investors increase their positions in companies with strong balance sheets, high returns on equity and consistent cash flow. The firm also recommended readdressing investing strategies toward those sectors that tend to outperform when economic growth slows down, which are communication services and utilities.

Regarding individual stocks that investors should acquire to enhance defensiveness, the bank major
