Forget Twitter, What About Hiayan? - Real Time Insight

By
A A A

The perfect storm of an IPO has pretty much played out as Twitter ( TWTR ) was priced last night and started trading this morning.

One tweet you might have missed was the head of Technology Investment Banking at Goldman Sachs :

Phew!

- Anthony Noto (@anthonynoto) November 7, 2013

This tweet came just after Twitter started trading and was clearly a reaction to the stock not falling apart the same way Facebook (FB) when it started trading on its IPO.

But I am no longer looking at TWTR or FB.... I am looking at Hiayan!

It's a mega typhoon headed for the Philippines and it could cause massive destruction to that island chain nation as well as your portfolio!


There are a lot of semiconductor companies that have plants there, and this typhoon could mess up any last minute orders for electronics.  This is a clear indication to sell the SMH - the semiconductor index and basically any other semi stock ahead of impact.


Do you have any stocks in your portfolio that could be impacted by this mega typhoon?

And no there are no sharks flying out of it ala Sharknado.
