Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

I previously hypothesized that Intel (INTC) was behind HP, Inc. (HPQ) and Dells refusal to join Nvidias (NVDA) GeForce Partner Program [GPP]. With strong opposition from Intel and two top PC vendors, Nvidia quickly killed its GPP. Intels disapproval of GPP meant other PC vendors would have also imitated HP, Inc. and Dells defiant stance against Nvidia.

GPP could have neutralized Intels tactic of using on-package Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Radeon Vega M GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) to help it sell more of high-end Kaby Lake-G Core i7 processor. Selling more high-end Core i7 processors can help improve the declining operating margin of Intels biggest segment, the $34 billion/year grossing Client Computing Group [CCG].

    HP management said there are two trends really beginning to take shape within the printing industry which they believe will benefit the company. The first trend is that in a flat industry there probably isn’t enough room for as many players (management identified 14) as currently exist. Weisler believes the industry will naturally consolidate, in part through acquisition, over time. For instance, Weisler highlighted HP’s acquisition of Samsung’s (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) printing business last year for $1.05 billion as a particularly savvy move, one that did far more than just capture additional market share for HP. The dealalso gave HP access to Samsung’s 6,500 printing patents and a pool of about 1,300 expert engineers.

Many investors kept most of their attention on Washington, where the White House announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the deal that the previous administration made with Iran concerning nuclear development. The withdrawal was largely expected, and although crude oil and other commodities were volatile leading up to the final decision, most other financial markets seemed prepared for the announcement. Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially.

The stock market sank slightly on Friday, with all three major market benchmarks giving up a small amount of ground from Thursday’s close. Slow GDP growth got the bulk of the blame from Wall Street, but it’s also common for market participants to take some money off the table going into the weekend after a strong week.

Meanwhile, earnings season continued to play out, and although the technology industry saw some extremely encouraging reports, not all stocks participated in the rally. Athenahealth (NASDAQ:ATHN), Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF), and Time (NYSE:TIME) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

Athenahealth gets a little sick

Shares of Athenahealth plunged 20% after the company reported discouraging results in its first-quarter financial report. The provider of cloud-based medical records said that sales were up 11% from the year-ago quarter, but the company posted a net loss, and even after adjusting for extraordinary items, Athenahealth saw its bottom line give up ground from the first quarter of 2016. Yet even though management remains optimistic about long-term business prospects for the company, CFO Karl Stubelis noted that sales were below expectations, and Athenahealth chose to revise its full-year outlook for both revenue and earnings downward. With investors having gotten used to lightning-fast growth from the medical records provider, Athenahealth will have to find ways to speed back up if it wants to satisfy its shareholders going forward.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) subsidiary Google has just announcedthat it plans to acquire Israel-based Velostrata, a start-up that specializes in helping enterprises migrate to the cloud. The cloud infrastructure market is booming, as newer companies increasingly realize they can utilize third-party infrastructure in the early days to great benefit, while more mature companies often supplement first-party infrastructure with third-party offerings to bolster performance and reliability.

    Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL)reported its first quarter earnings at the end of April, beating expectations handily. Revenue grew 26%, marking an acceleration over the previous quarter, but operating earnings only grew 7% year-over-year. That margin compression has investors worried.

Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Watch For 2018

Want to learn how to read stock charts? 

Well, we called in Bruce Kamich, our resident Chart Professor, to help you learn that and more.

Because when it comes to investing in stocks, it is important that you are able to perform your own  technical analysis of some stock charts.

Technical analysis sounds wonky but it’s basically financial analysis that uses patterns to identify trends and make educated predictions. And that’s exactly what the Chart Professor does with his charts every day.

He walked us through four basic charts:

Line — The simplest chart because it only requires one piece of data: the stock’s last price.  So it’s basically like connect the dots but leaves out important info all-time highs, etc…. Bar — Three prices are included here: the stock’s high price, low price and its closing price of the day or week are all included in each of the individual bars line that make up this chart. Candlestick — Four prices included here: the open, the high the low and the close all make up the little rectangle shape on this chart.  relation to the open and the close — if we close below the opening — bearish and the   .  If we close above the open price, bullish  ed or pink is bearish white is bullish —  Point and Figure — The oldest chart in U.S., it dates back to 1880’s and  And a mark only is made on this chart when the stock moves a predetermined price.  In the chart in this video, each X represents a 10 points move up. A 0 notes a reaction to the move.

And then talked about the three things you need to do with each of those charts:

    Thursday continued the stock market’s recent rally, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average enjoying another triple-digit gain and certain other major benchmarks starting to approach record levels. Benign news on the macroeconomic front was the latest cause for optimism among market participants, as the latest reading on inflation showed a just-right price increase that suggested a healthy economy without putting pressure on the Federal Reserve to boost interest rates too quickly. Some individual companies’ stocks saw outsize gains. Spotify Technology (NYSE:SPOT), CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), and ARMO BioSciences (NASDAQ:ARMO) were among the best performers on the day.

    Japanese trading company Itochu (OTCPK:ITOCY) has a tough act to follow – its own meaningful improvement over the past five years. The company was more willing than most of its Japanese trading peers to deemphasize commodity/resource businesses, and it moved fairly quickly here, building up non-resource businesses like its food, machinery, and finance operations. Those moves have led to better ROE and cash flow margin performance versus its peers, and Itochu shares have done well relative to peers like Mitsui (OTCPK:MITSY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MSBHY), Marubeni (OTCPK:MARUY), and Sumitomo (OTCPK:SSUMY) over that time.

    Maxfield: I think we mixed up some numbers. Theirrevenue as a percent of assets is4.92%, which is the highest in its peer group, and itspeer group are the really large, too-big-to-fail banks,JPMorgan Chase(NYSE: JPM), Citigroup(NYSE: C), Bank of America(NYSE: BAC), Wells Fargo(NYSE: WFC), plusother large regional banks. So that’s the largestwith one exception, and that isCapital One(NYSE: COF). The reason that Capital One’srevenue is so high as a percentage of assets is because a very largeportion of its loan portfolioconsists of credit card loans, and those yield,as everybody knows, a lot more than, say, a homemortgage does. So its revenue as a percent of assets isthe top in its peer group. But then,if you translate that over intoprofitability,that’s where that 1.1% return on assets is. When you’retalking about profitability for banks, there’stwo measures that you want to look at: yourreturn on assets andyour return on equity. Return on assets is basically yourunlevered profitability. Your return on equity is your leveredprofitability. Here’s the interesting thing about PNC, andthis is one of the reasons that it doesn’t pop up a lot wheninvestors are looking for the top-performing banks — it’s because theirreturn on common equity last year was8.58%. When you’relooking for a 10% return on equity, you think, that’sactually meaningfully below that standard industry benchmark that you want to see. But the reason that it’s below,as we see with its good return on assets,is just because it’s not very levered,which means it’s a very safe bank that’sstill earning a lot of money if you look at it on a levered basis.
