While the above numbers are based on actual transactions, the report is also providing an interesting insight into what people are looking for. The reports calls this “watchers” not unlike how you may have a watchlist of your most interesting stocks at your online brokers website.
Most watched, the Newbies and the Sprouting Sectors
I spare you a huge graphic with the top 10 list as those are the usual suspects from Facebook, Twitter, Groupon, Zynga, Foursquare or Skype. More interesting is who made it into the Newbies list, which is defined as those that had less than 10 watchers at the beginning of the quarter.
