Hot Stock & ETF Deals For Cyber Monday

Thanks to the burst of heavy discounts and e-commerce boom, retailers are enjoying one of the best holiday seasons ever. This is especially true as Black Friday and Thanksgiving online sales surged to a new record of $7.9 billion, up 17.9% year over year, according to Adobe Analytics.

Black Friday sales soared 16.9% year over year to $5.03 billion while Thanksgiving Day saw a jump of 18.3% to $2.87 billion in online spending. Most of the online sales came from mobiles and smartphones. Given a solid online shopping frenzy, Cyber Monday could become the largest U.S. online shopping day in history.

Adobe Analytics expects Cyber Monday online sales to hit $6.6 billion, surpassing Black Friday sales and increasing 16.5% from last year. The web analytics firm ComScore projects Cyber Monday to fetch $4.5 billion in e-commerce sales, up 22% from $3.68 billion last year. With the same fervor, retailers kicked in Cyber Monday deals early morning and many are stretching those through the Cyber Week.
