    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains. According to Axios, U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has privately told friends that he will not seek reelection in the fall. The news comes at a perilous time for Republicans, who are expected to lose the House of Representatives and potentially the Senate. Axios was the first to report the news. The story is also notable because Ryan recently achieved his long-time goal of passing tax reform in late 2017.

    Though concerns have been raised that the analog and MCU markets are at risk of seeing an inventory correction (they haven’t had a major one in a while), given signs of excessive ordering and stretched lead times, TI and STMicro’s numbers suggest conditions remain good for now. That’s particularly true in industrial and auto markets where trends such as factory automation, ADAS adoption and electric/hybrid car sales are boosting chip demand. Several other analog/MCU firms, including Microchip (MCHP) , ON Semiconductor (ON) , Maxim Integrated (MXIM) and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) , will be reporting soon.

    Crutcher added that TI’s own chip manufacturing teams have been pushing equipment suppliers to make their machinery smarter. “We want it to tell us sooner if there’s an issue with the [chip] wafer that’s going through that machine,” he said as an example. Fellow analog chip and microcontroller (MCU) suppliers such as Analog Devices (ADI) and Microchip (MCHP) also have strong industrial exposure.

    Wednesday was an up-and-down day on Wall Street. Major benchmarks started the day sharply lower as concerns about rising interest rates continued to swirl among those following the financial markets. Investors then seemed to get more comfortable with the current state of affairs, leading to a rebound, but further volatility left the Dow with only modest gains by the end of the session. Some bad news from key companies also weighed on overall sentiment. Snap (NYSE:SNAP), Teradyne (NYSE:TER), and Owens Corning (NYSE:OC) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

More than 100 participants heard opening remarks by Hearsay Systems CEO Clara Shih, who remains upbeat but clear on the acute challenges faced by advisors today.

“Nearly 2 billion people are active on Facebook,” Shih said.

    As much progress as the remote medical monitoring device market has made in recent years, we’ve still only scratched the surface. The surface has been scratched though. The Dexcom G5 mobile glucose monitor from DexCom, Inc. (NASDAQ:DXCM) is one impressive example. Arguably the first and best entry in the race, DexCom has sent a clear message that consumers and caregivers are ready for a functional device that takes care of itself.

    At the other end of the spectrum is a recent round of products that are less clinical in nature, and more broad-usage friendly. Devices like the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) watch and the Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT) line of products are both capable of monitoring heart rates and activity. On the other, neither does it all that well… not like one would expect in a clinical setting. Fitbit has run into a headwind of legal and reputational trouble since it’s been verified that its trackers aren’t all that accurate; Apple avoided such trouble largely because few consumers ever viewed its watches as medical-grade hardware.

    The gap between the Dexcom G5 and the Fitbit fitness trackers, however, is where real opportunity lies. See, the entries to date have proven there is a market for mobile medical devices , but have also proven they have to work as well as the equipment one might expect to find in a doctor’s office or in a hospital.

    It’s this subtle nuance that puts a young company called Biotricity Inc. (OTCMKTS:BTCY) in the spotlight, as it has melded mobile monitoring and quality monitoring, and is now in the midst of making sure they’re marketable… not just to consumers, but to insurance companies (which tend to pay a lot more than the average consumer does). Fitbit missed the mark on both fronts.

    Biotricity is working two different but similar pieces of technology. One is called bioflux, for use by caregivers in a clinical setting, and the other is biolife individuals outside of a clinical setting. Neither is o

    The eligibility criteria for a stock to be included in the S&P 500 Index include a market cap of $5.3 billion, U.S. headquarters, at least half a year since its IPO and four straight quarters of positive reported earnings.
    The worst annual performance of the index was in 2008, when it lost 38.5 percent.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: Trina Solar Limited(TSL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Elizabeth Balboa]

    The firm has a Sell rating on First Solar, JA Solar Holdings and Trina Solar Limited (ADR) (NYSE: TSL). It maintains a NC rating on SunPower Corporation, Canadian Solar and JinkoSolar Holding.

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another potential earnings short-squeeze candidate is integrated solar-power products maker Trina Solar (TSL), which is set to release numbers on next Monday before the market open. Wall Street analysts, on average, expect Trina Solar to report revenue of $645.68 million on earnings of 15 cents per share.

    The current short interest as a percentage of the float for Trina Solar is extremely high at 24.5%. That means that out of the 76.94 million shares in the tradable float, 18.88 million shares are sold short by the bears. If the bulls get the earnings news they’re looking for, then shares of TSL could easily rip sharply higher post-earnings as the bears move to cover some of their positions.

    From a technical perspective, TSL is currently trending below both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bearish. This stock recently formed a double bottom chart pattern at $8.67 to $9.04 a share. Shares of TSL have now started to rebound off those support levels and it’s quickly moving within range of triggering a major breakout trade post-earnings above some key near-term overhead resistance levels.

    If you’re bullish on TSL, then I would wait until after its report and look for long-biased trades if this stock manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $10.72 to $11.19 a share and then above its 50-day moving average of $11.17 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that hits near or above its three-month average action of 5.17 million shares. If that breakout materializes post-earnings, then TSL will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 200-day moving average of $12.49 to $14 a share, or even $14.50 to $15 a share.

    I would avoid TSL or look for short-biased trades if after earnings it fails to trigger that breakout and then drops back below some near-term support levels at $10 a share to those double bottom support levels at $9.04 to $8

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: AVG Technologies N.V.(AVG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Igor Novgorodtsev]

    InterActiveCorp (IACI) bought Ask.com for $1.85 billion in 2005. The new Perion will be worth only about 40% of that. After the merger, Perion will leapfrog its much larger rivals: Babylon and AVG (AVG). Finally, Perion should be able to increase its operating margins as it can spread its SG&A costs over a much larger base (Conduit EBITDA margin is 32% vs. Perion’s 23%). Perion will keep its senior management team intact: Josef Mandelbaum will remain its CEO and Yacov Kaufman its CFO. Perion has successfully orchestrated a roll-up acquisitions of privately-held Sweetpacks and Smilebox, so I have high confidence that they know how to integrate a new business.
