We remain encouraged by margins, and strength in corporate and commercial bank units.

    The importance of cellular connectivity for wearables, particularly for smartwatches, has been a theme of mine since last year, and I’m glad to see other analysts and organizations starting to pick up on it. I’ve discussed Qualcomm’s (NASDAQ:QCOM) development of the Snapdragon Wear SOC that manufacturers are using for Android Wear 2 smartwatches with LTE connectivity, such as the LG Watch Sport (OTC:LGEAF). Such watches provide voice calling and cellular data connections and anticipate the future direction of the smartwatch.


    There are other areas of smartphone innovation pursued by other companies besides Apple. The development of OLED screens has been a significant innovation pursued mainly by Korean giants Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) and LG (OTC:LGEAF). It is now being reported that Samsung and LG will introduce smartphones with foldable OLED screens this year.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Major turning points like the one were seeing right now can generate spectacular comeback moves. In fact, were already witnessing several of these rallies in our commodity-centric plays. Just look at copper miner Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE: FCX).

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    The metals and mining sector has seen many winners, particularly in steel and copper. Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE: FCX) is big in copper and shares were last seen down 0.3% at $13.90 late on Monday, which might have been up more had it been less diversified. Shares of Freeport-McMoRanare up 26% in the past fivetrading days. The stock has a market cap of $18 billion.

    In February, the shortest month of the year, copper, gold, and oil company Freeport-McMoRan Inc (NYSE:FCX) saw its shares tumble by nearly 20%. After a roughly 95% price gain in 2016, it was a painful reminder of years past, when Freeport-McMoRan was dealing with the aftermath of an ill-timed oil investment.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) and Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX) rank among the largest gold and copper miners in the world. After years of retrenching, both are in better operational and financial shape than they were when commodity prices started to tumble in 2011. But now that metals prices are finally rising, there are new troubles to face. Barrick’s headwinds, however, don’t look nearly as formidable as what Freeport-McMoRan is facing.


    Some energy stocks just cant seem to catch a break and Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (FCX) is one of those energy stocks. As we all know, FCX made some bad moves and decided to get into the oil business just as prices were peaking. That wouldnt be so bad, if it wasnt for the massive debt it took out to buy stakes in the gulf and other regions.
