The internet is undeniably the most important innovation in recent history – it has enabled an open exchange of information and ideas, created a new age in commerce, and brought together people across the globe. But the Internet's connective capabilities don't end with people. The next wave of the Internet is already underway, and it is taking devices and putting them on the grid. This "Internet of Things" is taking everyday items and enabling them to communicate with each other, leading to real-time analytics, more efficient operations, and predictive capabilities. Of course, we need sensors, communication infrastructure, and software solutions to collect, communicate and decipher it all.

U.S. dollar moved higher ahead of the long weekend as demand for safe-haven assets increased.
The S&P 500 Index fell 20.6%, and the Nasdaq Composite fared even worse with a negative 29.5% return. Well-established companies that generate ample profits and return it to investors via dividends and share repurchases can smooth out portfolio performance -- not to mention tee up strong returns once the economic clouds clear up. Three stocks that look like timely buys right now are IBM (NYSE: IBM), Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM), and Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ: SWKS).
In the latest trading session, Cisco Systems (CSCO) closed at $42.64, marking a -0.56% move from the previous day.
