Hot Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

Norway’s $1 trillion wealth fund backed the unsuccessful shareholder proposal to split Elon Musk’s combined roles of chief executive and chairman at Tesla Inc., according to a statement.

In March, the wealth fund also voted against management recommendations in a special meeting convened to approve one of the largest compensation deals in history for Tesla’s chief executive.

Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2018: Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd.(TSM)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    To illustrate my point, Intel’s chief competitor, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM), has said that its 7-nanometer technology, which should go into mass production in the first half of 2018, delivers a roughly 1.63-fold density improvement over its 10-nanometer technology.

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    A while back, DigiTimes reported that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM), a major contract chip manufacturer, planned to introduce an enhanced variant of its 16nm manufacturing technology dubbed “12nm.”

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    Contract-chip manufacturing giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) recently announced its earnings results, provided forward guidance for the current quarter, and provided a lot of insight on the ramp-up of its next-generation chip-manufacturing technology, called 10-nanometers (10nm for short).

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    For many years, NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) has relied on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) to manufacture the graphics chips it designs. Today, most of NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture-based graphics processors — from the GeForce GTX 1060, designed for mainstream PC gamers, all the way through its cutting edge Tesla P100 datacenter accelerators — are manufactured by TSMC.

  • [By Ashraf Eassa]

    As part of this discussion, he took the time to explain how the technology that Intel calls 14 nanometers is more like what its competitors — Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.(NYSE:TSM) — call 10 nanometers (smaller is generally believed to be better).

Royal Mail Plc, which traces its origins back five hundred years has been a member of the FTSE 100, the UKs index of blue chip companies, since shortly after being privatized in 2013, only narrowly escaped relegation in the most recent quarterly review this June. But could it now be relegated? Some pundits have ventured as much.

Todays British postal that was founded in 1516 when Henry VIII created a Master of the Posts was the darling of the stock market following its full privatization in 2013 and debut on the London Stock Exchange.

But after shares reached the giddy heights of £6.15 in January 2014 concerns have grown about its speed of restructuring, falling letter volumes and on-going negotiations with unions around closing its expensive Defined Benefit (DB) pension scheme.

These worries have contributed to the shares falling to £3.97 a pop of late, which equates to a decline of 20% year to date. And, since hitting the highs back then the share price drop equates to c.35%.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The stock market continued to climb sharply on Wednesday, sending major market benchmarks to record highs yet again and propelling the Dow Jones Industrials up more than 100 points. Economic data continued to support the notion that the U.S. economy remains strong, and rising inflation levels led many to conclude that the Federal Reserve is more likely than ever to follow through on its promise to keep lifting short-term interest rates in 2017. Rising bond yields reflected investors’ reluctance to hold onto fixed-income investments in anticipation of higher rates, prompting some to shift assets into the stock market. Several companies also reported, andFortress Investment Group (NYSE:FIG), Editas Medicine (NASDAQ:EDIT), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the top performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

great stocks to invest in today: Duke Energy Corporation(DUK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Duke Energy Corp. (DUK), the largest generator of electricity in the nation, is awfully steady.

    DUK has more than 7.4 million customers located in hotbeds of growth, and it boasts a generating capacity of 52,697 megawatts. The firm also provides natural gas distribution in many of its main service areas, so Duke is a double threat in that way. Cold winter? Nat gas provides more oomph. Hot summer? Electricity demand spikes.
