Warren Buffett rarely likes technology stocks.

His rationale? Stick with what you know. Buffett readily admits that he does not understand technology so he has avoided investments in the technology sector.

Over the years, there have been exceptions to this rule – including Buffett’s investments in IBM and Microsoft, among others.

Perhaps chief among these exceptions is Buffett’s investment in Apple. Over the past year, Buffett, through his holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, has amassed more than 61 million shares in Apple, making Berkshire a top 10 Apple shareholder with its 1% stake.

    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. Schultz had previously denied any speculation around a role in government; but his recent comments suggest that “public service” will be a part of his future plans. 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. The reason why gold is going to get a nice boost: ongoing trade tensions between the United States and the rest of the globe.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Shares of Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) hit all-time highs two weeks ago, but a swift correction finds the dot-com darling kicking off this new trading week 17% below those peak levels. The sell-off is creating a tempting buying opportunity for investors that have missed out on one of last year’s hottest stocks, but it’s always difficult to time an entry point in a stock that’s correcting.

    A third stock that could see significant benefits from the marijuana industry, but that has a safety net built into its business model, is Shopify (NYSE:SHOP).

  • [By Steve Symington, Anders Bylund, and Rich Duprey]

    Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) stock has proven an overwhelming success for early investors, soaring more than fivefold since its IPO in mid-2015. And it’s not hard to make the case that the e-commerce platform company is only just getting started. 

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Shopify Inc. (NYSE: SHOP) was up 1.4% at $175.55 on Tuesday in reaction to earnings and shares were indicated up another 2% at $179.00 on Wednesday. RBC Capital Markets upgraded it to Outperform from Sector Perform and raised the target price to $230 from $180. Wedbush Securities reiterated its Outperform rating and $200 price target, noting that Shopify is well positioned to keep gaining its share of e-commerce wallets over time and to capture more merchants across the entire spectrum of size from aspirational to established companies to enterprise level.

    Square’s plans with Weebly could also fall short of challenging Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), which leads the market in “digitizing” offline businesses. Shopify already helps businesses launch e-commerce platforms, design websites, process payments, launch marketing campaigns, handle deliveries, and more — so Square still has a lot of catching up to do.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: Axcelis Technologies Inc.(ACLS)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    3. Axcelis Technologies (Nasdaq: ACLS)
    It is the technical price pattern that first caught my eye with this $800 million market cap small cap.  Shares dropped to a $22.00 low in mid-February but have since been slowly and steadily moving higher toward resistance at both the 50- and 200-day SMAs. In and of itself, this is not enough impetus to get long. However, when combined with the fundamental picture, a compelling long thesis emerges.

Top Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

A global equity fund whose manager has drawn comparisons to Warren Buffett in the U.K. press is outperforming rivals thanks to a 166 percent rally in World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. over the past seven months.

London-based Lindsell Train Ltd sits atop the holder list with 7.1 million shares at the end of March. This equates to almost 17 percent of the total outstanding shares, according to Bloomberg data.

The company has been in the stock since at least 2009, regulatory filings show.

Nick Train, who co-founded the company in 2000, has been called a "British Buffett disciple" by the Financial Times and the "U.K.’s answer to Warren Buffett" by retail stockbroker Hargreaves Lansdown.

His global equity fund has returned almost 9 percent year-to-date and more than 20 percent in the past year. The fund is beating 95 percent of its peers this year and has outperformed 98 percent in the past three years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In Right Now

We have been fans of DNB (OTCPK:DNHBY) (OTCPK:DNBHF) for quite a long time now. It is the largest financial services group in Norway, and, more importantly, one of the safest banks in the world. A little less than a year ago, we said that DNB was offering a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ buying opportunity. Our high-conviction contrarian call was based on the fact that DNB was trading at a very undemanding valuation, despite having a double-digit RoE, strong capital ratios and a 6% dividend yield. We also argued that market fears over the bank’s asset quality issues were overdone as DNB has a prudent risk management approach. Since that, DNB’s shares have rallied by 55%. And that does not include the stock’s generous dividends.
