Fintechs have promised to make selling and buying a house more efficient. But they have yet to deliver (fully) on the promise. To be sure, the &a;lsquo;old&a;rsquo; guards of the fintech real estate world, Zillow and Redfin, have armed a potential buyer or seller inventory, neighborhood, and comparable transaction information before they even contact a broker. Yet, the average transaction price has barely budged from its traditional list price of 6%. In other countries, &l;a href=&q;https://www.economist.com/node/21554204&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;the price is less than half&l;/a&g;. Rather than fleeing from this industry under attack, no one other than &l;a href=&s;http://www.forbes.com/profile/warren-buffett/&s;&g;Warren Buffett&l;/a&g; and his company, Berkshire Hathaway, continue to acquire traditional real estate brokers. However, a new breed of fintech companies, with names like &l;a href=&q;http://www.homie.com&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Homie&l;/a&g;, &l;a href=&q;http://www.faira.com&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Faira&l;/a&g;, &l;a href=&q;https://www.rexchange.com/&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Rex&l;/a&g;, &l;a href=&q;http://www.opendoor.com&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Opendoor&l;/a&g;, and &l;a href=&q;http://www.offerpad.com&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;Offerpad&l;/a&g;, are trying to make home selling and buying quicker, easier and cheaper &a;ndash; and are taking on Warren Buffett and the traditional real estate industry while doing so.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Anders Bylund, Chris Neiger, and Ashraf Eassa]

    Anders Bylund (IBM): Yes, this is the good old Big Blue you and your grandfather always knew. But it’s not the same old IBM, and that’s exactly why I’d recommend it over investing in bitcoin today.

    The U.S. is about to reclaim the top spot on the list of the world’s fastest supercomputers. Summit, a $200 million system designed by International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) for the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, is tailor-made for big data and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads. Capable of 200 quadrillion floating-point operations per second when fully operational, Summit is expected to handily beat out the Chinese system that currently tops the charts.

    Since International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) began its latest transformation, the tech company has been building up its capabilities in fast-growing areas. These areas include cloud computing, analytics, artificial intelligence, security, and blockchain, to name a few.

    The DJIA stock posting the largest daily percentage gain ahead of the close Wednesday was International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM) which traded up 2.85% at $158.65. The stock’s 52-week range is $139.13 to $182.79. Volume was about 35% above the daily average of around 4.8 million shares.

    IBM (NYSE:IBM) recently reported its first-quarter earnings results, which came in ahead of analyst expectations. Still, shares were sold off after the release, and the stock remains down about 10% from its pre-earnings price, as the mere reiteration of full-year guidance was less than investors were hoping for.

Hot Cheap Stocks To Watch For 2019: S&P GSCI(GD)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Lou Whiteman]

    For investors looking to put new money to work in a defense prime today, I’d recommend General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) over either Raytheon or Northrop Grumman. General Dynamics currently trades at a 20% discount to its rivals on a price-to-earnings basis and at a 13% discount on a price-to-sales basis due to continued weakness in its business jet division. There’s more risk to General Dynamics, but there is also more potential upside should it get its aerospace business on track and close that valuation gap.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Traders sold shares of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) on strength during trading on Friday. $52.91 million flowed into the stock on the tick-up and $170.65 million flowed out of the stock on the tick-down, for a money net flow of $117.74 million out of the stock. Of all stocks tracked, General Dynamics had the 0th highest net out-flow for the day. General Dynamics traded up $0.76 for the day and closed at $202.52

    Moreno was also upbeat on General Dynamics (GD) , which just made a bullish crossover, but felt that Raytheon had the best chart of them all.

    Cramer agreed, saying he’s bullish on all of these names.

    Finally, General Dynamics Corp. (GD) , along with Lockheed and BAE Systems, could possibly profit from heightened demand ships and other vehicles.

    However, the fast casual market became increasingly crowded with rival chains like Panera Bread and Chipotle, and Zoe’s got squeezed between traditional dine-in restaurants like Darden’s Olive Garden and evolving fast food players like Wendy’s (NASDAQ:WEN) and McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD).

    Recently the managers removed AmerisourceBergen Corp (NYSE: ABC) and used the proceeds from the sale to increase the position they already held in Unitedhealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH).

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Health insurance giant UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) has done an admirable job of navigating the ever-changing landscape of healthcare reform over the past several years. The company was slow to embrace the health insurance exchanges set out in the Affordable Care Act, and that helped leave UnitedHealth less vulnerable when the Trump administration sought to repeal and replace Obamacare. Even as many focused on the positives of tax reform, UnitedHealth had to find ways to navigate the return of the excise tax on health insurance premiums in 2018 without seeing a material negative impact to its bottom line.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Before the opening bell Tuesday, Dow Jones Industrial Average component UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) is expected to report another solid quarter. After all, the company has beat analysts’ earnings estimate for eight straight quarters and revenues in six of those eight.
