On CNBC’s “Options Action,” Mike Khouw spoke about an options strategy that he would use to get a long exposure in the energy space after a sharp move higher.

He said that crude oil inventory is still incredibly high and he thinks that it won’t trade significantly higher until the inventory declines.

Instead of trading crude oil, he would consider making a modestly bullish bet in Schlumberger Limited. (NYSE: SLB), which is the strongest company in the oil service space. Khouw added that the company is cash flow positive and it makes money even when crude oil prices are low.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Qualys Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS) was up 1.7% at $96.41 ahead of earnings, but the guidance had the shares down almost 16% at $81.00 on Wednesday morning. JPMorgan downgraded it to Underweight from Neutral and cut the price target to $82 from $90. Wedbush maintained its Outperform rating with a $95 price target, but noted that guidance was nothing to write home about and addresses whether guidance was conservative or if there is a slowing demand.

Last year, a handful of large-cap tech stocks were responsible for most of the valuation expansion in the sector. A different pattern is playing out this year.

High flyers like Amazon.com Inc. and Nvidia Corp. are still handling most of the sector’s outperformance, but what is different this year is that the 10 biggest companies on average are seeing their earnings multiples shrink. It was “primarily the non-FANG stocks that became more expensive,” Bernstein analysts including Toni Sacconaghi said in a research note.

    Pegasystems (NASDAQ:PEGA) announced first-quarter results this week that paired a significant slowdown in sales growth with plummeting earnings. The declines were driven by a shift toward cloud-based revenue that had a more pronounced impact on the books because of the implementation of new accounting rules.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Applied Optoelectronics, Inc.(AAOI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAOI) reported its fourth quarter results after the markets closed on Wednesday. The company posted $0.89 in earnings per share (EPS) on $79.9 million, which compares to consensus estimates that were calling for $0.82 in EPS on $86.2 million in revenue. Here’s what analysts were saying after the fact:

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    It’s official: The short-lived Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) rally is over. Tariffs on products coming out of China got the snowball started, but internal product quality issues were ultimately what caused the avalanche. As of this writing, shares of the optical networking manufacturer are half the value they were during the summer of 2018.

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo]

    Shares of fiber optic networking manufacturer Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) fell as much as 25% in late August through early September on tariff worries. Comments from the White House that taxes could be imposed on virtually all goods imported into the U.S. from China sent investors scurrying for the exits, and Wall Street analyst downgrades of some of AOI’s peers didn’t help either. Since the company has operations in China, it could be argued that the political concerns are valid. However, AOI is in good shape, and after another stock price adjustment, shares look like a value play again.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now: Sohu.com Inc.(SOHU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Joseph Griffin]

    Russell Investments Group Ltd. decreased its holdings in shares of Sohu com Ltd (NASDAQ:SOHU) by 23.4% in the first quarter, HoldingsChannel.com reports. The fund owned 108,393 shares of the information services provider’s stock after selling 33,178 shares during the quarter. Russell Investments Group Ltd.’s holdings in Sohu com were worth $3,351,000 as of its most recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    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.

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    The market isn’t warming up to Sohu.com’s (NASDAQ:SOHU) latest financial report. Its shares are hitting their lowest levels since the summer of 2007 after the Chinese online advertising, search, and gaming specialist posted disappointing first-quarter results on Wednesday morning. 

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Lumber Liquidators (NYSE:LL), Camping World Holdings (NYSE:CWH), and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) have taken a beating this year. They’re among the biggest losers through the first three quarters of 2018. Let’s go over why I think they have a shot at bouncing back in the next three months.

  • [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.

    Starbuck’s Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX) Executive Chair Howard Schultz announced he will depart the company. Many are speculating he will pursue a career in politics and potentially seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.

Gold prices dipped below $1,300 per ounce as markets continue to speculate on the likelihood of additional interest rate hikes in 2018. We believe this is solid buying opportunity for investors.

Best Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2019

EMM & QNX will be the growth drivers going forward. But the risks in BlackBerry stock continue to remain elevated.

BlackBerry (NSDQ:BBRY) stock is a very volatile stock. When the company announced its latest set of earnings on the 20th of December, the share price rose to around $8 a share, but since then has plummeted back down to the $7 level. Blackberry is unique in that it is a low priced stock but is just as liquid as many of its peers. This combined with the volatility of the tech sector attracts all types of investors and traders as volatility is a guarantee (which we have obviously seen over the past week or so).

BlackBerry’s latest fiscal third quarter was definitely a mixed bag. On one hand, you had aggressive margin expansion and a surprising profitable quarter on a non-GAAP basis, but on the other hand, top line came in $20 million short of what was expected. A return to revenue growth is expected next year with enterprise software & QNX probably leading the way. Blackberry and its investors know that if this company can comprehensively combine these areas as well as its security wing to work cohesively in the emerging Internet Of Things market (IoT), then this company will have a strategic competitive advantage. Blackberry’s pivot from hardware to software may have been well timed but I would still recommend caution. Here are three reasons to back up my case.

Most investors focused on Singapore, where U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Geopolitical issues have weighed on market sentiment for some time, so any sort of favorable resolution to tensions on the nuclear front could be embraced by Wall Street.

Hot Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

The stock market climbed sharply on Thursday, responding well to favorable earnings results from several corners of the market. Major benchmarks were up 1% to 2%, with particularly good performance from the Nasdaq Composite thanks to the tech sector’s outperformance during the day. Yet some stocks suffered from bad news that cast doubt on companies’ ability to benefit from generally favorable business conditions. MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), Arch Coal (NYSE:ARCH), and LendingTree (NASDAQ:TREE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

MGM falls despite Cotai opening

Shares of MGM Resorts International lost almost 9% after the company reported its first-quarter financial results. The casino giant said that net revenue was down 1% compared to year-earlier levels, with revenue per available room falling 4.3% at its key Las Vegas Strip properties. Casino revenue was up just 2%, and CEO Jim Murren pointed to the likelihood of continued weakness at Mandalay Bay in the wake of the tragic events that happened there last autumn. Disruptions at Monte Carlo and the cancellation of a major boxing event will also weigh on future results. Even with solid performance from its stake in MGM China, investors aren’t certain that the casino resort operator’s business strategy will yield the results they want to see in the long term.

    The stock market performed badly on Tuesday, with major benchmarks finishing down anywhere from 0.5% to 1.6%. Adding to the list of concerns among market participants, signs of economic challenges in Italy brought back memories of past troubles in Europe that extended the length of time that the continent suffered from disruptions following the U.S. financial crisis in the late 2000s. Investors also had to deal with plunging oil prices that led to a flood of buying in the bond market, sending interest rates plunging lower. Bad news also affected several individual companies. JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN), and CVR Energy (NYSE:CVI) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019: Applied Optoelectronics, Inc.(AAOI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Wednesday was a down day for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average posting triple-digit losses even as broader benchmarks had much smaller moves. Market participants largely focused their attention on the inflation front, as March consumer price index numbers showed a 0.2% rise in the core rate excluding food and energy. Year-over-year price changes have accelerated, seemingly giving the Federal Reserve more justification to continue raising interest rates. Yet even though many stocks generally react unfavorably to inflation fears, there were some big gainers that had good news. Hilton Worldwide Holdings (NYSE:HLT), Pretium (NYSE:PVG), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAOI) reported its fourth quarter results after the markets closed on Wednesday. The company posted $0.89 in earnings per share (EPS) on $79.9 million, which compares to consensus estimates that were calling for $0.82 in EPS on $86.2 million in revenue. Heres what analysts were saying after the fact:

  • [By Logan Wallace]

    Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) issued an update on its second quarter earnings guidance on Tuesday morning. The company provided earnings per share (EPS) guidance of $0.39-$0.52 for the period, compared to the Thomson Reuters consensus estimate of $0.46. The company issued revenue guidance of $75-$81 million, compared to the consensus revenue estimate of $77.48 million.

    There is no doubt in my mind that high-speed network equipment and components will be in high demand for many years to come. That’s why I’m salivating over the rock-bottom prices that some of the best names in the industry are trading for right now. So let’s have a closer look at Finisar (NASDAQ:FNSR), Applied Optoelectronics Inc. (NASDAQ:AAOI), and NeoPhotonics (NYSE:NPTN), all of which have seen share prices sliding at least 20% lower over the last 52 weeks. These are great companies in a high-growth industry with legs that are good for miles and miles, and should be snapped up at these ridiculously low prices.

  • [By Elizabeth Balboa]

    Acacia Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACIA) fell 4.3 percent and Oclaro Inc (NASDAQ: OCLR) 1.1 percent, while Applied Optoelectronics Inc (NASDAQ: AAOI) and Lumentum Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: LITE) dipped marginally.

  • [By Anders Bylund]

    Notably, Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) was held up as a likely takeover target before the ink had dried on the Oclaro/Lumentum deal, but the stock started to fall a couple of weeks later as no such bids materialized. Applied Optoelectronics shares fell 10.3% lower in March, but the damage was repaired in early April when analyst firm Rosenblatt said that the company’s largest data center customers are ramping up their computing infrastructures very quickly at the moment.
