New York, NY (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
In a recent Investment Contrarians article, financial expert and editor George Leong reports that Israel now has the second highest number of start-up companies in the world, trailing only the U.S.
“There are over 120 Israeli companies listed on U.S. exchanges, including about 60 on the NASDAQ, which makes Israel second only to China on this index,” notes Leong. “However, a major difference is that Israeli stocks are more trustworthy than Chinese stocks.”
Leong states that the technology and healthcare market sectors are two of the leading industries in Israel. He notes that Israel has also seen a steady rise in technology companies that have performed well on the world stage, pointing out ClickSoftware Technologies in particular.
According to Leong, ClickSoftware is a small-cap technology stock that has excellent long-term potential for above-average price appreciation.
ClickSoftware creates workforce management and service optimization solutions that allow companies to manage resources efficiently and effectively, says Leong. He reports that the stock’s solutions serve a broad range of industries via direct sales and partnerships with leading platform and system integration partners.
He also highlights Given Imaging, a biotechnology stock that’s a key player in gastrointestinal medical devices that enable healthcare professionals to visualize, diagnose, and monitor a patient’s digestive system.
According to Leong’s stock analysis, Given Imaging is just above its 52-week low, where there may be a good opportunity for contrarian investors looking for a bounce.
“So while the U.S. will continue to be the top producer of start-ups, Israel is a region that will offer investment opportunities,” concludes Leong.

Investment Contrarians is a daily financial e-letter dedicated to helping investors make money by going against the “herd mentality.”
The editors of Investment Contrarians believe the stock market and the economy have been propped up since 2009 by artificially low interest rates, never-ending government borrowing and an unprecedented expansion of our money supply. The “official” unemployment numbers do not reflect people who have given up looking for work and are thus skewed. They believe the “official” inflation numbers are also not reflective of today’s reality of rising prices.
After a 25- to 30-year down cycle in interest rates, the Investment Contrarians editors expect rapid inflation caused by huge government debt and money printing will eventually start us on a new cycle of rising interest rates.
