Markets to Watch in ’08

2008 will be a change-filled year.

The markets that I plan to watch closely are home video (rentals and sales), cell phones and real estate.

Questions about the home video market
Which format will win, HD-DVD or Blu-Ray?
How will Blockbuster and Netflix perform with more competition for video rentals from Apple and Amazon.

Quetions about the Cell Phone Market
Will Google launch a cell phone?
Will more companies follow Verizon Wireless move to open its network to other cell phones?
How much growth will there be in mobile advertising and mobile video?

Questions about the Real Estate Market
Will real estate prices rebound?
Will fixed-rate mortgage rates remain low ?
Will YOY home sales begin to rise?

Also, who will be the next American President?

With so many questions yet to be answered, 2008 should be an interesting year.
