Best Medical Stocks To Own Right Now

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.

Top 10 Tech Stocks For 2018: Google Inc.(GOOG)

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.

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    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.

    It’s hard to say exactly what caused the stampede for the exits. Several high-profile companies, including Google parent Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG), reported disappointing earnings. Traders were also grappling with contentious budget debates in Washington and the threat of another government shutdown.

    The so-called #PotPurge, a generalized censorship of cannabis-focused channels, continues in Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG)’s YouTube. Over the past few months, the video streaming platform has been closing many of these accounts with little or no explanation. This week, the channel of leading education platform Green Flower was closed, deleting hundreds of educational videos.

    For example, DeepMind, an AI company owned by Alphabet’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google, partnered last year with the U.K.’s National Health Service to use AI algorithms to read medical scans. DeepMind isn’t making decisions on patient care from the scans just yet, but as the AI continues to learn from the scans, it could be used in the future to make recommendations for doctors, which would free up countless hours for healthcare professionals.

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.

Best Bank Stocks To Invest In 2018: Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc. (ICEIF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    In May of this year, at the annual Collision Conference, advertising and media executives of the world’s biggest traffic-oriented (and ad-supported) websites asked themselves a crucial question: How do we save online advertising from itself?

    The question itself is a reflection of the new reality of the internet…. it’s become so big, so full, so cross-border, so competitive, and so promotional that it’s become an unwieldy mess. Twenty years ago, click-through rates were greater than 40%. Now they’re a mere 0.6%, as consumers (1) are saturated by marketing messages, and (2) have largely learned that ads don’t lead them to a product or service they care about. Digital advertising simply isn’t what it used to be.

    While the answer to the question “how can digital advertising be saved?” is a complex one, a company called Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc. (OTCMKTS:ICEIF) addresses at least one aspect of the question, by doing what the web’s capitalists have failed to figure out how to do well. What’s that? ICEIF understands that an ad has to be relevant to a user no matter where that user is, and that to see an ad at all, a user has to be able to read the web’s content in his or her native language.

    Intelligent Content Enterprises, through its Digital Widget Factory website www.digiwidgy.com, has tackled the aforementioned issue head-on, creating a rich website with a built-in translation tool which displays advertisements and offers unique to that reader’s location, and delivers that marketing message in his or her native language.

    It may sound like a lot of work at first glance. But, it’s worth it.

    Digital industry research outfit Common Sense Advisory reports that of the more than 3 billion internet users worldwide, approximately 73% — 2.2 Billion people — are browsing the web in a language other than English. That’s quite a disparity from the fact that more than 50% of the content on the web is na

    In hindsight, June’s news from Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc. (OTCMKTS:ICEIF) should come as no surprise. In May the organization announced it was buying Catch Star Studios LLC for the purpose of creating its own sports-related television shows that would be aired by broadcast as well as online. Now it’s begun creating that television content, following in the footsteps of much bigger original-content creators such as Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX).

    What might comes as a surprise to existing and potential ICEIF shareholders, however, is how big highly-focused original television programming is now that the lines between the internet and cable television have not only been crossed, but erased.

    May wasn’t just a pivotal month for Intelligent Content Enterprises because it’s when the acquisition of Catch Star Studios was put into motion. May was also the month Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) reported some stunning results of a new study about digital video-viewing habits and preferences. The key findings? Regular viewers of original digital video programming in the U.S. have grown from 45 million in 2013 to 63 million, and the advertisements displayed via a digital broadcast of such programming are liked and remembered by far more viewers than they are when part of a conventional cable television broadcast.

    Said another way as far as advertisers are concerned, the world wide web is the new cable television. That’s not to say cable television has become irrelevant. Savvy content makers are now doing both, while also making a point of creating their own customized content now that the fight for viewers has gotten brutal.

    Take Netflix as an example. It has a pair of smash hits with its self-produced ‘Orange is the New Black’ and ‘House of Cards.’ Amazon.com is getting into the game too, with its ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ recently being awarded two Golden Globes.

    If there was any doubt that the future of video as a digital medium was here to stay, Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) just wiped that doubt away. It’s going to open up its video-sharing platform to anyone — not just vetted creators with huge followings — and split ad revenue with them. In so doing, it now offers a similar deal (though a more generous deal) that Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and YouTube also offers video creators.

    It’s just a microcosm of the shape of things to come… or the shape of things as they already are. Last year was the first year internet users spent more time watching videos online than they did engaged in social media, averaging more one hour and sixteen minutes of video viewing per day.

    Perhaps more important, the amount of ad revenue the likes of Facebook, and now Twitter, generate via online video is small, but growing very fast. The total ad spend allocated for digital video has jumped from 2.4% in 2013 to 4.4% today, and that’s expected to double again in two years.

    Yet, for as much revenue as online video can drive and as big as it’s gotten, the ad-display technology remains alarmingly inelegant, even or veteran players like YouTube and Facebook. This clunky display of ads — and Twitter will likely keep it clunky, at least initially — increasingly makes a company called Intelligent Content Enterprises Inc (OTCMKTS:ICEIF) not just well-positioned, but a potential acquisition target.

    Intelligent Content Enterprises has developed a tool called Clix Video(tm), which the company described as a way to enable “digital and mobile viewers to instantaneously connect to web and mobile sites by clicking on custom interactive tags within the video broadcasts to make social media connections, to review extra and exclusive content and make online and mobile purchases directly via the video broadcast providing a richer, deeper consumer experience related to the video content. “

    In English, it just means Clix Vide

For years, I’ve mostly ignored the statements that the Social Security Administration (SSA) sent me. They were just numbers.

When you’re far away from retirement, the numbers look like a Jackson Pollock painting: They seem really abstract. This year, though, I was paying attention and noticed considerably more detail in my Social Security statement.

For one thing, the “Thinking of Retiring” newsletter/statement that the SSA sent me contains a lot more useful detail. It breaks down my estimated benefit by retirement age, lists my earnings record and even tells me how to reap a higher benefit (retire later).

No matter how old you are, you should know some key facts about Social Security. The most essential one is that it typically only covers 40% of your pre-retirement income. For most folks living in urban areas, that’s hardly enough, so you’ll need to save much more in 401(k)s and other retirement vehicles.
