Hot Tech Stocks For 2019: Sohu.com Inc.(SOHU)
- [By Anders Bylund]
Sogou’s shares are prone to big swings for a couple of simple reasons.
As a Chinese business, many American investors don’t feel connected to Sogou’s business and might not have access to some important sources of information about this company and its stock. Though Sogou has been around for nearly a decade now, it only entered the public markets in November of 2017. It’s a new ticker, untested on the market, and not always easily understood through year-over-year or longer-term analyses. At the IPO, Chinese internet giants Tencent (NASDAQOTH:TCEHY) and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) combined for a total ownership of 82% of Sogu’s business. Those stakes later declined to 71%, but Sohu and Tencent remain Sogou’s largest shareholders, with 96% of the voting power in shareholder elections and votes. Regular investors hold a very small stake in Sogou, which tends to boost the stock’s volatility.
Moreover, Chinese regulators launched an investigation of Sogou in June, forcing the company to shut down parts of its online advertising operations for 10 days in early July. The company is accused of showing video ads that insulted a national hero. That blackout will reduce Sogou’s third-quarter revenues by a significant but unannounced amount.

It’s now been seven months since Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) completed its objective of spinning off Sogou. Sogou had been the fastest growing component at Sohu for years. It should have taken off after trading on its own merits, but that failed to happen. Though the shares inched slightly higher in their first few days of trading, Sogou has spent most of its time since late November as a broken IPO until it finally cracked the $13 ceiling today in intraday trading.

Hot Tech Stocks For 2019: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)
- [By Chris Hill]
In this MarketFoolery podcast, host Chris Hill and David Kretzmann of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Supernova discuss Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) first quarter — yes, Model 3 production is still lagging — and Elon Musk’s odd behavior on the company’s conference call; Spotify’s (NYSE:SPOT) first post-IPO quarterly report, which was a reminder of how hard it can be in tech to transition into the harsh glare of the public markets; and the future of struggling wearables icon Fitbit (NYSE:FIT).
- [By Harsh Chauhan]
Who would have thought that Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) and Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN) could end up competing against each other one day. When Fitbit was founded back in 2007 as a wearable technology start-up that was primed to shape the fitness tracker market, Garmin was busy making navigation and tracking products using global positioning system (GPS) technology for cars, motorcycles, boats, and planes.

Wearable devices and fitness go hand in hand, as the product category has become inseparable from health-related use cases. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) have both emerged as clear leaders in the growing wearables category, thanks in large part to including a expanding suite of health and fitness features.
Hot Tech Stocks For 2019: Twitter, Inc.(TWTR)
- [By Wayne Duggan]
Here’s a rundown of some major Coinbase announcements crypto traders may have missed:
Back on Jan. 17, Coinbase acquired the engineering team from Memo.AI. The move was seen as an effort by Coinbase to help the company cope with the technical requirements of the cryptocurrency boom.
In March, Coinbase announced it hired former LinkedIn head of mergers and acquisitions Emilie Choi to serve as VP of corporate and business development. Up to this point, Coinbase has generated the majority of its growth without major acquisitions, but the addition of Choi to the management team suggests Coinbase could be looking for sources of outside growth in the future.
On April 8, The Wall Street Journal reported that Coinbase contacted the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to inquire about the possibility of becoming a licensed brokerage firm. The move would improve Coinbase’s credibility among traders, many of whom are leery of cryptocurrency investing after a series of cryptocurrency frauds and thefts have cost traders hundreds of millions of dollars.
Investor safety was the primary driver behind Alphabet, Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL), Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) and Twitter, Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) banning all cryptocurrency-related advertisements from their platforms earlier this year.
Coinbase took a major step in countering cryptocurrency’s risky reputation April 9 when the company announced the hiring of Rachel Horwitz, formerly director of technology communications at Facebook. Horwitz will serve as Coinbase’s first-ever VP of communications and will face the tough task of polishing cryptocurrency’s tarnished reputation as a safe investment.
On April 13, Coinbase made another sizable acquisition when it announced a buyout of Ethereum wallet Cipher Browser. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Coinbase said it plans to merge many of the features of Cipher’s Web 3 decentralized app browser

The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
Hedge fund manager Carl Icahn has reversed his position on a potential deal between Cigna Inc. (NYSE: CI) and Express Scripts Holding Co. (Nasdaq: ESRX). Icahn is no longer seeking votes against the $52 billion merger. Icahn had previously written a letter that argued Cigna was paying too much for the pharmacy-benefits manager.

Hedge fund manager David Einhorn and his firm Greenlight Capital made a major announcement this morning. The fund has cut its stake in Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR), and Micron Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MU). The updates came in a filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and stated his firm’s positions at the end of the second quarter.

The Top Stock Market Stories for Friday
Job growth topped expectations, and the U.S. unemployment rate fell to a multi-decade low of 3.9%. The agency said that nonfarm payrolls increased by 201,000 new jobs. The average estimate was set at 191,000 jobs before the report. Average hourly earnings increased by 2.9% for the month on an annualized basis. The U.S. economy added 157,000 new jobs in July, and it has averaged 221,000 new positions during the previous five months. Twitter Inc. (Nasdaq: TWTR) has permanently banned Alex Jones and his website Infowars from its social media platform. Jack Dorsey’s firm said that Jones had repeatedly violated Twitter’s content policy. The announcement comes shortly after Jones heckled Dorsey outside of congressional hearings about online election interference, social media and political bias, and censorship. Jones had also live-streamed a very heated interaction with CNN reporter Oliver Darcy. Alphabet’s (Nasdaq: GOOGL) YouTube, Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), and Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) have also banned Jones in recent weeks. The price of Bitcoin is off more than 20% in the last two days. The plunge has also spread to Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and the rest of the cryptocurrency sector. The sharp downturn came after Business Insider released a report that Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) may abandon its plan to launch a trading desk around the cryptocurrency sector. Goldman has since publicly said that no decision is final. However, the jitters have fueled yet another panicked sell-off in a very volatile sector.
