If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Buy ‘Em

It's a Catch-22 for many of the biggest names in technology – there they sit on top of their respective industries, with cash in the vault, and yet the next disruptive or emerging product or service could be the brainchild of a company that nobody's heard of. In order to stay on top and fuel growth, tech giants often use their best weapon: a big sum of cash to elicit a buyout. And a slowly recovering economy certainly hasn't hurt matters. Global tech mergers-and-acquisition activity increased to $177 billion in 2012, up 23% from a multi-year low in 2009.[1] Within that flurry has been a focus on a few key industries: cloud-based software, business intelligence and analytics, and cyber-security. Stocks in this motif provide an opportunity to invest in companies connected to some of tech's most-talked-about buzzwords – with a potential additional bonus if these targeted companies are snapped up for attractive premiums.
